Many GOT fans actually find this character attractive.

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’re already a fan of Game of Thrones and/or beer.  But for the uninitiated, GOT is an epic fantasy saga sweeping over seven kingdoms embroiled in a dark war for the Iron Throne.  Now entering its third season, the critically-acclaimed drama has become one of the biggest shows on HBO, earning numerous Emmy awards and an international audience.  Fans of the show, as well as lovers of fine beer, are much alike- they enjoy character, strength, and complexity.

Both HBO and Ommegang take great pride in a shared reputation for producing the best in their respective fields: award-winning series that are lauded as some of the best written and produced programming on TV, and award-winning beers recognized as amongst the most elegant and well-crafted.

 Tasting Notes:

Iron Throne is a 6.5% ABV blonde ale, brewed with a robust amount of pils, honey malt, and aroma malts, and red wheat.  Gentle hopping includes Styrian Golding and Hallertau Spalter Select, appropriately noble hops.  Spiced with grains of paradise and lemon peel.  The hue is a slightly-hazy golden amber.  The head is full and fluffy.  Finish is crisp, backed by a touch of spice and hops.  Aroma is a bit grassy, with a hint of lemon and fruitiness from the yeast.  Taste is lightely malty rounded out by honey malt sweetness.  In Iron Throne, we’ve brewed a fine ale combining rich flavors and aromas, along with easy drinkability, bringing sheer drinking pleasure.

Game of Thrones season 3 premieres Sunday, March 31st.  Check out the trailer, and get your GOT Iron Throne Blonde Ale at Liquor Barn before it’s gone!
