HBO letting fans choose next Game of Thrones beer


HBO, Game of Thrones, and the Brewery Ommegang have had a partnership that has provided us with some incredible beers. Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout were a huge success, while Fire & Blood, which will be available in March of 2014, is highly anticipated.

While we have yet to get a taste of Fire & Blood, Brewery Ommegang is already set to work on their next Game of Thrones inspired beer that will be chosen by the fans. The winner will be decided by a fan vote on the official Game of Thrones Facebook page. You can vote here.

Here is a look at the options that will be available, via the press release:

Name: Hand of the King
Style: Belgian-style quadrupel
Description: “The responsibility of running a kingdom can only be matched by the complexity of a Belgian-style quadrupel ale. Rich in flavor and dark in color, a quad is the perfect companion for waging war, brokering peace, or enduring a Small Council meeting.”

Name: Seven Kingdoms
Style: Belgian-style tripel
Description: “The golden tripel is the universally agreed pinnacle of Belgian brewing achievement, making it the perfect beer to represent the legacy of the Seven Kingdoms. Though supremely drinkable, the tripel comes with a spicy character that represents the sordid events of the history of Westeros.”

Name: Khal
Style: Belgian-style quadrupel
Description: “The Dothraki people, like the Belgian-style quad, are the strongest of the strong and boldest of the bold. Quads rest atop the pyramid of Belgian beer because of their strength, so this style makes a fitting tribute to the men that rule the mighty Khalisars of Essos.”

Name: Valar Morghulis
Style: Belgian-style dubbel
Description: “’Valar Morghulis’ is an Old Valyrian saying closely associated with the desire for vengeance. Thus, a Belgian-style dubbel was chosen to capture the sweetness of revenge as well as the dangerous consequences that come with it.”

Personally, I would love to sit back and sip on a beer called “Hand of the King,” so we will have to wait and see what selection comes out on top.
