It seems like we have been waiting a lifetime for the Game of Thrones final season to drop but we are so almost there. A date has been announced, posters are finally being released and now we can start planning our premiere parties.
Luckily, Brewery Ommegang is on hand to help with the booze situation as every season they have provided us a GoT themed beer to reflect the plot. We had ‘Hand of the Queen Ale’ and ‘Mother of Dragons Porter’, and now we get ‘For The Throne Golden Ale’.
The beer is said to have been heavily influenced by the last season which will see the final battle for the throne commence, creating a “delicate yet complex” taste. It certainly will pack a punch at 9.5 percent which might just be needed if the reports of storyline epic-ness are true.
As per Thrillist, Brewery Ommegang president, Doug Campbell said:
“Winter is here, the wall has fallen, and the final battle for Westeros is underway. With this offering, we have bent the traditional boundaries of beer-making, co-fermenting traditional ingredients with juices normally destined for fine wines, going to great lengths to create a truly unique, special beer. This style of beer, often called a ‘oenobeer,’ is a rapidly expanding area of study for us. For The Throne is our first of co-fermentation beer of 2019, and the only one we’ve launched under the Game of Thrones banner.”
We for one can’t wait to try it – anything that takes the pain away waiting so long for the new season is good with us!
