Game of Thrones Beer Is Coming: Iron Throne Blonde Ale!
Hoping to get the Mother of Dragons in your life a wee bit tipsy?
Get her Ommegang’s new beer, Iron Throne Blonde Ale, inspired by HBO’s Game of Thrones.
According to the New York Post, the beer will be made available prior to the March 31 premiere of GoT Season 3.
"Iron Throne is certainly fair in color and soft in appearance, yet it still possesses a complexity and bite to be on guard for,” says Ommegang Brewmaster Phil Leinhart. Sounds like it was inspired by that fetching silver queen, Daenerys Targaryen.
The Post reports that the Ommegang brewery pays HBO a "royalty” for the rights and plans to release several more GoT-branded beers in the future. Perfect for Westeros-themed drinking games! (What a shame poor Robert Baratheon is gone. He'd have loved to sample them all.)
