Sorry, our Klingon’s a little rust. Literally translated, buy’ ngop does mean the “plates are full,” but in the Warrior’s Tongue it can also mean “that’s great news!” What great news are we geeking out about? Well, Klingon Warnog Ale was launched to the public this past weekend. The craft beer is the result of collaboration by The Federation of Beer and Indiana-based Tin Man Brewing Co., the first in a series of Star Trek-themed alcoholic beverages to be released in the United States.
The Star Trek-themed beer is a high-quality Roggen Dunkelweiss (Danish Rye Beer) that captures the warrior essence of the Klingon culture with its bold and unique taste. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, Klingon Warnog Ale will beam into select liquor stores and bars in Indiana and Washington state during the week of July 28. In celebration of the Klingon Warnog expansion, The Federation of Beer will be hosting “premiere” launch parties under the banner of First Contact: Klingon Warnog over the next year. The First Contact: Klingon Warnog events actually kicked off with launch parties in Evansville and Indianapolis this past weekend. Additional USA launch parties will be announced in August.
