'Star Trek' themed Klingon beer, Warnog, debuts in Las Vegas

As it turns out, space is not the final frontier-beer is. Or, rather, was, thanks to the newly minted Warnog brew, a Star Trek-themed beer coming to us from Indiana's Tin Man Brewing Company. That's right, you too can now get drunk like a Klingon-and all without having to change the shape or texture of your forehead.

As it turns out, space is not the final frontier—beer is. Or, rather, was, thanks to the newly minted Warnog brew, a Star Trek-themed beer coming to us from Indiana’s Tin Man Brewing Company. That’s right, you too can now get drunk like a Klingon—and all without having to change the shape or texture of your forehead.

Tin Man is teaming up with “Vulcan Ale” brewers Federation of Beer to bring us Warnog, a Dunkelweizen-style ale made with rye. Tasting notes include “banana and clove flavors,” which admittedly sounds about as far away from what a Klingon would drink as possible. But, then, the American palette hasn’t yet adapted to the fine flavors of cold steel and your enemies’ blood. 

Vulcan Ale, for its part, has been available only in Canada, putting Warnog at the top of the list as the first official Star Trek beer in the United States. So, as you can see, this is a high honor.

Warnog, however, is not the end of the Star Trek-themed drink stable, with the show at least mentioning a slew of intergalactic beverages for us to recreate in real life. Federation of Beer, in fact, plans to have out a Romulan Ale sometime in the near future. I, for one, will hold out until someone releases a Klingon Bloodwine, as pop culture intended. 

Lucky for us, the wait for this one won’t be too long—Warnog is set to debut today at the Nightclub & Bar Show in Las Vegas. Hoch 'ebmey tIjon, fellow warriors.
