As a complete shock and surprise to EVERYONE, the world did not in fact end today. So now that we’re all still around, let me give you something to look forward to! In addition to new episodes of Game of Thrones in March, you’ll be able to sit down to watch them with a cold, themed beer.
HBO has teamed up with Ommegang, a brewery in upstate New York, to create Iron Throne Blonde Ale, which will be released around the same time as the new season.
According to sources, “Iron Throne is a blonde ale at 6.5% ABV and brewed with a robust amount of pils, honey, aroma malts and red wheat. Gentle hopping includes Styrian Golding and Hallertau, appropriately noble hops.”
…I’m already planning the party.
(While you wait for more info on the beer, make sure you grab your Game of Thrones steins so you’ll be all ready when it’s released!)
