The return of Game of Thrones beers

There’s one thing we love talking about as much as spirits, wines and beers and it is indisputably the series close to our hearts: Game of Thrones. So when the two are associated… WE CAN’T CONTAIN IT ANYMORE.

Anyway.

If you’re a fan of GOT you might have heard in 2013 that the Brewery Ommegang launched back then a “Game of Thrones” beer series.

The beers have initially been launched in limited editions but the good news is that Ommegang will re-release this fall Iron Throne Blonde Ale as well as Take the Black Stout.

We had no idea what the reaction to a Game of Thrones beer would be when this all started,” said Brewery Ommegang marketing director Bill Wetmore in a statement.  “We were blown away by the runaway success of these first two beers and are very excited to give loyal fans another chance to enjoy them.”

The two beers will be re-launched in the US in september in single 750ml bottles as well as in a gift pack. Prices should be around §9.99 and §22.99.

A bit more about the two Game of Thrones beer via Brewery Ommegang:

  • Iron Throne Blonde Ale has a slightly hazy golden amber hue. The head is full and fluffy. The finish is crisp, backed by a touch of spice and hops. The aroma is a bit grassy with a hint of lemon fruitiness from the lemon peel. The taste is lightly malty, rounded by honey malt sweetness. Iron Throne Blonde Ale is 6.5 percent alcohol by volume.
  • Take the Black Stout is deep black in hue, with a full tan head. Aromas include dark chocolate, caramel malt, earthy hops, and a touch of fruitiness. Tastes include chocolate, dark coffee, and rich malt character. The beer has light, balanced roastiness aroma and taste. The clean hop bitterness converges with a slight woody character and spiciness. The finish offers sweet malt character giving way to spicy, earthy, hop bitterness. Take the Black Stout is 7 percent alcohol by volume.
