Game of Thrones & Ommegang's Latest Beer Lets You Choose Your House

by The Drink Nation on Feb 8, 2017 in Culture

HBO’s wildly popular series Game of Thrones and Ommegang Brewery are continuing their beer collaboration with their newest release, Bend the Knee, as fans prepare for the premiere of the seventh season, according to an exclusive by GQ.

Each of Ommegang’s Thrones beers thus far has been focused on a different concept within the world of the Seven Kingdoms, from the Iron Throne Blonde Ale to the Take the Black Stout, and this release, which is a golden ale brewed with wildflower honey (9% ABV), features multiple bottles adorned with different house sigils for the three Great Houses. Fans can pick their bottle based on which sigil it features, from House Stark’s direwolf to House Lannister’s lion to House Targaryen’s dragon. Though the beers inside the bottles are identical, these are the only sigils to choose from, so if you’re more of a Greyjoy (or, god forbid, a Bolton), you’re out of luck.

The beer itself is brewed using pils malt, flaked oats, a trio of different hops (specifically, Saaz, Bravo, and Styrian Golding), and the wildflower honey, which is added in at the end, and it results in a delicate, dry beer with a 9% ABV.

 

Though there’s no release date for either Season 7 of the show or the sixth book in the series, The Winds of Winter, fans can get their hands on this Belgian-style beer in late May — so walk, don’t run, as these limited release beers always sell quickly.
