At the 31th of March your favorite tv series will make its season 3 debut! And that’s not the least. HBO announced that before that the presentation of their beer will be done.
The Ommegang Brewery, based in New York, famous for its successful beers, which receive praises from beer merchants and consumers at the US. The brewery has achieved already to rapidly increase its reach to 45 of the 50 U.S. states.
The successful and rapid developed microbrewery agreed to produce beers in collaboration with the cable-tv Colossus, which is, HBO. HBO is the producer of other famous series such as “The Sopranos”, “Sex and the City” and “True Blood” besides “Game of Thrones”. The first beer, which will be produced will be called “Iron Throne”. Its logo will include the photo of the homonymous “chair” of the series, for which all the actions of this mythical and fiction series are happening. The beer will be a blonde Ale, with 6,5% abv. With a Lannister at the throne, what else could it be? For the brewing process a robust amount of pils, honey malt, aroma malts and red wheat will be used. Gentle hopping includes Styrian Golding and Hallertau Spalter Select, appropriately noble hops. “Iron Throne” will be spiced with grains of paradise and lemon peel. Aroma is a bit grassy with a hint of lemon fruitiness from the yeast. Taste is lightly malty, rounded out by honey malt sweetness.
We found the above at the brewery’s web-page as until the 31th March, where the beer will be released, we could not have a self-opinion. The beer will be in a 750ml bottle and will be sold for $8,50. “Iron Throne” will be also available at specific and selected places as draught beer.
Our information’s include that “Iron Throne”, is the first of the total four beers related to the tv-series. Other three will be produced, from which the first will be released in fore coming fall.
Unfortunately for the Europeans, who would love to buy one of these beers, the shipment outside US borders is not available, according to brewery’s web-page. You have to seek for other e-shops. If you find one, let us know. We are also desperate in having one or two..
