‘Game of Thrones’ gets its own beer

Game of Thrones mug

VIA THINK GEEK Don’t you dare drink the Game of Thrones beer from coffee mugs.

My favourite Game of Thrones drinking game is to take a hearty sip every time Tyrion does something awesome or every time the Khaleesi looks sad. This goes a long way toward explaining my rampant alcoholism.

And soon there will be a beer tailored specifically for the needs of Game fans. HBO has announced a collaboration with Brewery Ommegang, which will eventually result in four different beers. The first will be called Iron Throne Blonde Ale and will be released in March to coincide with the premiere of season 3.

HBO, via Winter Is Coming, says, “Unlike previous efforts by brewers, which were typically executed as ‘brewed under license’ arrangements or straightforward product placement pushes, the collaboration between Ommegang and HBO is focused on developing truly unique beers that directly tie into themes, characters and nuances of the series of the medieval-like fantasy realm of Westeros and surrounding kingdoms.”

A second brew will be released in the fall and two more will come later.

Can we have a Stark Dark, please? And a Wedding Red Lager? What about I Took The Black Beer? [shut up. — sober ed.] – entertainment
