Captain's Holiday, an ale from the Shmaltz Brewing Company, takes its theme from the season 3 episode of the same name, in which Picard, played by Patrick Stewart, has his shore leave interrupted when he buys a statue called a Horga'hn. Unbeknownst to him, displaying the statue on the planet Risa is implied by the local
to mean the owner is seeking "Jamaharon" -- a ritual implied to be of a sexual nature.
The beer itself is described by Shmaltz as having lemon, lime and orange citrus flavors. It is being sold in four-packs in stores across 35 states and on draft at select bars.
