Garrison Celebrates Hal-Con with the Re-release of Star Trek 50th Ale and Hal-Con Soda

Just in time for Atlantic Canada’s biggest, geekiest sci-fi convention, Hal-Con, Garrison Brewing will re-release both the Star Trek 50th Anniversary Golden Ale and Hal-Con Raspberry Ginger Ale.

50th Anniversary Golden Ale is an official Star Trek/CBS beer brewed under license by Garrison Brewing for the Federation of Beer (FOB). This refreshingly special brew will set taste buds to stun with a smooth, crisp, east coast flavour.  Pale golden in colour and sparklingly clear with a lasting frothy white head, this brew is out of this world!

The re-release will see the Golden Anniversary Ale sold in 650ml bottles available at the brewery and private liquor stores. “The 650ml bottle has a much larger label than the 341ml’s produced this summer and it still comes in 12 different designs utilizing original ‘Ships of the Line’ artwork,” said Brian Titus, President and CEO of Garrison Brewing. “We had loads of fun designing these and the choice of label images were hotly debated by our passionate Trekkie staff!”

Dockyard Soda Co., a division of Garrison, is also bringing back for a limited time its’ electric green Raspberry Ginger Ale called “Sweet Nelson Power Soda”. The soda was a huge hit last year when released for Hal-Con with most of it gone that weekend. “We were taken completely by surprise last year when what we thought would last 2 days only lasted 2 hours!” said Justin Zinck, Marketing, Events & Retail Manager at Garrison Brewing. “Luckily the brewery is only blocks away so we were able to keep the ice cold soda flowing”. This time “Power Soda” was packaged in a clear bottle which will allow the bright green colour to shine. The soda will be available at Hal-Con, Garrison Brewing and at specialty retailers around town.
