Northern Brewer Partners with Star Trek Star to Create Recipe Kits

MINNEAPOLIS — Homebrew beer nerds rejoice! Wil Wheaton may be best known as Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation or the movie Stand By Me, but his newest role is that of homebrewer. Wil has partnered with homebrew company Northern Brewer to create a series of recipe kits released under Wil’s own brand, Devil’s Gate Brewing Company. Featuring a special line of recipe kits designed by the King of the Nerds himself, Devil’s Gate is bound to shake up the world of homebrewing.

“I’ve been a huge fan and loyal customer of Northern Brewer for about two years,” said Wil. “I am so excited to partner with them because they not only have high quality ingredients, but their incredible customer service and genuine love for the homebrewing community is exceptional. Getting to dream up and see these recipes come to life is every homebrewer’s fantasy, and I can’t imagine getting here without the expert knowledge and support of Northern Brewer.”

The first recipe kit to hit stores is “Vandal Eyes PA.” The beer Wil designed with his wife in mind is a perfectly balanced IPA with malty caramel taste, strong hop flavor and bright, bold citrus touch. Vandal Eyes PA will delight taste buds after a hot day on the lake or a cozy night in. With a variety of Devil’s Gate recipe kits to be released throughout the year, this is just one of many specialty beers to look forward to.

Whether just starting out in the homebrew world or a self-declared homebrew expert, Northern Brewer and Devil’s Gate Brewing Company are the perfect partners in crime.

Since his well-known role as Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation, Wil has starred in a number of TV shows and movies, and gathered a large online following for his website Wil Wheaton Dot Net.
