Game of Thrones fans can toast the night away with a brand new beer due out right around the start of season 3. An upstate NY brewery – Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown – has partnered up with HBO to produce the beer line.
So, what’s the first flavor you can enjoy? It’s called ‘Iron Throne’ and is described as a “blonde ale”. National markets will get shipments of 750 ml bottles around Mid-March and have a suggested retail price of $8.50 per bottle. Brewery Ommegang promises that the beer is not just a gimmick. The flavors were created to reflect beers that would be found during the medieval times in which Game of Thrones is based.
I’m cracking up! ARRRRGGGGGHHHHHH
In case it’s not tattooed on your brain, the 3rd season of Game of Thrones begins March 31st. I cannot WAIT.
Fess up – are you a bit curious about the flavors? I’m a fan of the show and so is my husband. We might just give this one a try.
