HALIFAX, NS – Garrison Brewing has announced the release of its latest beer created in partnership with Federation of Beer, rights-holder for the commissioning of Star Trek branded beers in North America.
Inspired by one of the best known tropes of the Star Trek franchise, Red Shirt Ale is a 6% abv and 30 IBU ale with the following description:
Brewed in honor of those brave but ill-fated men and women who donned the doomed red uniform. For them we boldly brew this strong, other-worldly American Red. Deep copper colour, richly malty and exploratively hopped with Millenium, El Dorado and Citra. Celebrate the hopelessly optimistic with a beer worth dying for.
Red Shirt Ale is available now in 650 ml bottles at the Garrison retail shop and private liquor stores in Nova Scotia, and will be on shelves at select NSLC locations later this month. Outside of Nova Scotia, it will be distributed to New Brunswick (at ANBL growler stations), Newfoundland, Manitoba and Alberta.
