Brace Yourselves: New 'Game Of Thrones' Beer Is Coming!

Drink like a Lannister with this new line of Game of Thrones themed beer!

Brewery Ommegang announced that their new line will be called the Bend the Knee Golden Ale. It will be a mixture of the traditional Belgian flavor missed will wildflower and honey. However, buyer beware! This beer is extremely strong.

President of the brewery, Doug Campbell, states that the high alcohol content of 9% is traditional for a Belgian brew. He added that the flavor “adds to its delicateness, and the beer finishes smooth and dry.” They may taste lovely, but you will certainly only need one!

Ommegang told GQ to try the beer with “seafood and shellfish, roasted or grilled chicken, grilled steaks, and aged Swiss-style cheese.”

In order to pay homage to the HBO series, the brewery will also be producing three distinct labels. Each will have the signs of the three houses: Lannister, Stark, and Targaryen. The bottles will only come in 750ml and are planning to be released on Memorial Day. Each bottle will have a suggested retail price of $11.

 

This is not the company’s only time creating Westeros themed beer. Brewery Ommegang started to collaborate with HBO in the beginning of 2013. Needless to say, the beer options were a hit! Their other Game of Thrones themed selections also include “Iron Throne, a blonde ale; Take a Black, a stout; Fire and Blood, a red ale; Three-Eyed Raven, a dark saison; Seven Kingdoms, a hoppy wheat ale; and Valar Morghulis and Valar Dohaeris, a dubbed and triple ale.”

Make sure to mark your calendars because we are sure this beer will sell out! However, if you do get your hands on a bottle, it will definitely lessen the long wait for the premiere of the seventh season. The kick off of the new season will not begin until July 16th.
