Seven hells! What glorious news for lovers of both craft beer and George R.R. Martin/HBO's Game of Thrones! Brewery Ommegang, located in Cooperstown, New York, has teamed up with HBO to begin releasing Game of Thrones themed beers. It is known!
A new, limited edition Game of Thrones beer will be released every Fall and Spring by Ommegang during the upcoming years, starting with their Iron Throne Blonde Ale, a Lannister-inspired beer (blonde hair, they currently hold the throne, get it?). The ale will be available in limited quantities starting in March, sold in 750ml bottles and 1/6 BBL kegs. At 6.5% ABV, it's still a strong blonde for those of you who like to drink Robert Baratheon-style.
