1. Romulan Ale
A souvenir beverage created for the 1998 opening of Vegas’ Star Trek: The Experience attraction. Widely held responsible for James T. Kirk’s unpublicized bout with alcoholism.
2. Imperial Stout Trooper
The New England Brewing Company was required to change their original label, after a cease and desist letter by George Lucas. Who was probably drunk on said beer at the time, that hypocritical bastard.
3. Tricerahops Double IPA
A descendent of Hopasauras Rex (seriously), created by Jamie Floyd of Ninkasi Brewing Company. Considered to be the perfect complement to “Land Before Time” drinking games.
4. Gigabit IPA
Hopworks created Gigabit IPA in an attempt to attract Google to Portland for their “Google Fiber for Communities” experiment. Google sees everything. Even your drinking habits.
5. Sapporo Space Barley
The barley that’s used for Sapporo’s Space Barley was grown aboard the International Space Station, making Sapporo the first brewery to create a beer with space-grown ingredients. It costs $115 per six pack. I can and will spend a sixth of my rent on getting space-tipsy.
