Star Trek Beer

Beam me up, Scotty, there's no beer on this planet

Your Uncle Nutsy has noticed two things that generate fanatical followings: "Star Trek" and beer.

To create a race of super-fanatics, cross the two and produce "Star Trek Beer"- a line of beers with Star Trek references. Here are some ideas:

"Redshirt Red": the low-end lager. Motto: "The beer that won't come back."

"Borg Bock": a bock beer (trust me, they're yummy) sold in a cube-shaped bottle, with the motto "Resistance is futile. You will be inebriated."

"Scotty Stout": a stout (heavy, dark beer) with a hint of heather, with the motto "As Scottish and as Stout as Mr. Scott himself."

Then there's the obvious "Romulan Ale," the less-obvious "Pon Farr Ale" and "Voyager Weiss," and my all-time favorite:

"Trans Porter"

There you go, someone else liked that joke, too. [jutta, Sep 05 2008]

Borg Bokkøl http://www.ratebeer.../borg-bokkol/11121/
That's Norvegian for "bock". Well, okay, the brewer's name is Borg, so this has nothing to do with Star Trek; still. [jutta, Sep 05 2008]


       Pon Farr ale should have a heavy dose of Spanish Fly or something...
StarChaser, Nov 18 2000

       Syrian Panther Sweat sounds like a great one too- from the Stainless Steel Rat series by Harry Harrison.
BigThor, Nov 20 2000

       I thought that the point of a Pangalactic Gargleblaster was that you could never remember anything afterwards. Uncle Nutsy you are sure to burn in hell for Trans Porter, but your basic idea is sound. It's a sure fire recipe for success. Make mine a Wodka!

       Anyone who does not know what a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is should be shot. Fourty-two times. WIth a Kill-O-Zap gun.
oooga, Nov 22 2000

       So many classic literary references flying here (although i preferred the dry wit of Harry Harrison to the surreal humor of Doug Addams).
cheapshot, Dec 13 2000

       At least spell his name right. He's *Chas* Addams.
jutta, Dec 20 2000

       Didn't he write 'Watership Down'?
DrBob, Dec 21 2000

       Richard Adams wrote Watership Down.

       Which Larry Niven story had bar glasses with miniature transporters [teleportation units] at the bottom? The idea being the bartender could refill them continuously.

       "Captain's Slug' Comes in different bottles - each label depicting an airbrushed Bill Shatner thumping another badly-evolved alien.   

       Kind of collectable. (As a record of how much shit beer you need to enjoy ST)
Siz, May 31 2001

       Star Trek beer already exists, you can buy it at the Star Trek Experience at the Las Vegas Hilton. There were, as I remember 5 or 6 kinds. My friends bought a few cases. (the freaks)

       >Anyone who does not know what a Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is should be shot.<P>   

       There's a bar in Ottawa, Canada called Zaphod Beeblebroxes. It's not a theme restaurant, but they do serve a Gargle Blaster. I never had the nerve to try it, knowing that it was unlikely to match those served in the more fashionable ends of the galaxy.

       Hey, just think, Kirk might lose his starship for being drunk at the helm! Make a change from insubordination.
cartman, Jul 21 2001

       but he would either steal the ship back or it would have been a plot to discredit him...

       Never had a Vul can of Spock Bock myself.

       Will you get done for driving seven over the eight?
egbert, Oct 10 2002


       It would be impossible to prove who was responsible. - only one of the collective needs to get bladdered for all the others to enjoy the effect, of course.   

       Puzzled Cop: "Who was driving the vehicle "?   

       Borg: "We all were."

       You forgot the drink, "It Is Green".
GenYus, Feb 13 2004

       A Star Wars beer in an R2D2 shaped can would be cool. Astromech Ale or Robobock.
jaksplat, Apr 21 2005

       I thought it couldn't get much sadder than having the kids take a road trip with TiVo.   

       Now I know.
disbomber, Apr 21 2005

       There is bar in Pimlico, London (please no one ask "Which London?") called Page's Bar. They sell Romulan Ale and various foaming Klingon drinks - usually to clientele dressed as Romulans and Klingons or folk dressed in Starfleet uniform, in fact the whole place has the Starfleet insignia woven into the carpet. It's very sad when you're sober but hilarious after a few beers.   

       Live long and prosper folks!
wagster, Apr 22 2005

       Live wrong and mutter?   

       Live long in squallor?
