Winter is coming, and so is beer. Fans of the HBO series “Game of Thrones” who just can’t get enough of the show will soon be able to buy a piece of the experience to enhance their viewing pleasure. HBO is set to partner up with Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown N.Y. to create a Belgian-style beer inspired by the George R. R. Martin books and series. The beers will be based on themes and characters and will have unique names and flavours.
The first beer will be released nationwide in the United States in late March so that fans can down the ale while they watch the premiere of Season 3 of “Game of Thrones” on March 31st. The name of the first brew will be “Iron Throne Blonde Ale”. Three more beers are planned to be released with the second one hitting the market in the fall and the others to follow in each ensuing season. I wonder what the next three beers will be called, and how will they taste? If they make a beer based on Daenerys Targaryen, it should be red and have a bit of a kick!
Do you have any name suggestions for some “Game of Thrones” beers? I personally like the way “I Hate King Joffrey Ale” sounds.
