Game of Thrones Ale: Seize the Iron Throne Here
Game of Thrones, the HBO series that puts Dungeons and Dragons to shame, is back for its third season and what better way to celebrate than with beer?
Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown, New York has released its Iron Throne ale in cooperation with HBO.
This is the first in a series of Game of Thrones-inspired brews, released in tandem with the season premiere.
Iron Throne is a blonde ale at 6.5% ABV, brewers with honey malt, aroma malts, and red wheat, then spiced with grains of paradise and lemon peel. The ale is crisp, with a hint of lemon and a honey malt finish.
Iron Throne ale is a limited release and and is available in bottles at ABC Fine Wine and Spirits and Total Wine & More, while supplies last.
In addition, World of Beer Coconut Creek has the ale on draft for $7. The Wellington and West Palm Beach locations have Iron Throne in 25-oz. bottles ($16.50), as of this morning, though the chance of selling out is high.
