Captain’s Log: Approaching Planet Buzz.

Let the Jedi have their little mind tricks, “Star Trek” fans can make merry this holiday with the Star Trek Captain’s Holiday brew. A lively libation with hints of orange peel and lime, this Shmaltz Brewing Company creation commemorates the 30th Anniversary of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Part of a line of officially licensed Star Trek beers, Captain’s Holiday, which will be transported in 4-packs to retail outlets in 35 states across the country as well as available on draft in certain bars, harkens back to the episode in which the crew convinces the redoubtable Captain Picard to take a much-delayed vacation on the pleasure planet Risa. Make it so sippable.

If you are the sort of Trekkie who speaks Klingon and sports Starfleet uniforms on every formal occasion, you may have found your perfect holiday tipple.
