A Klingon ale concept made it big last month after a Canadian brewery heard that it had approval from 'Star Trek' creators to make the beer. A company in Vulcan, Alberta, collaborated with Nova Scotia's Garrison Brewing to create the Klingon Warnog Roggen Dunkel Ale in time for a comic convention in Halifax this past November.
The beer collaboration dates back to licensing agreements that Alberta-based Federation of Beer made with CBS/Paramount a few years ago. Federation was interested in creating Vulcan ale with a brewery in Montana, an idea that received warm support from beer lovers and Star Trek fans alike. When Federation approached Garrison in hopes that a Canadian brewery would make a beer with them, Titus said he jumped at the opportunity. It was up to his brewery to create the recipe, so he decided to go for the unexpected.
The base was a dark German weissbeer, which is usually light and hazy, but Garrison added chocolate, dark malts and spices to change things up. "There's a lot of neat things going on in this brew," Titus told Space.com.
Warnog is a Klingon alcoholic beverage that is not quite as popular as bloodwine, according to "Star Trek"-themed site Memory Beta, but it was mentioned on television in shows like "Star Trek:The Next Generation."
