Ale and beer and wine are some of the most often mentioned items in all of the “Game of Thrones” universe and soon you can enjoy the series with a cold class of themed beer for yourself! (Anyone who knows me, knows my penchant for themed things so you can only imagine my excitement). HBO and Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown N.Y.are teaming up to create a line of beers based on the hit TV series.
The beers will be belgian style and will be based on themes and characters from the HBO series. The first in the series is named Iron Throne Blonde Ale after the throne on which the King of Westeros sits, and will be released nationwide in the U.S. in late March in time to watch the premiere of Season 3 of “Game of Thrones” on March 31.
Three more themed beers are expected to follow the first one with the second one expected to be released next fall. They have not released what the other flavors will be called but if they don’t have a “Winter is Coming” winter ale, then they are doing something wrong.
Ommegang Brewery, a Belgian-style brewery, is known for its popular Ommegang abbey ale, Rare Vos amber ale and Three Philosophers.
Season 3 of “Game of Thrones” will premiere on HBO on March 31, 2013 and will follow the first half of the novel, “A Storm of Swords.”
