HBO and Brewery Ommegang Announce Re-release of Game of Thrones Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout

Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black StoutWhile in Westeros it remains very much uncertain who will ultimately rule the Seven Kingdoms, fans of Brewery Ommegang and the hit HBO show Game of Thrones are going to enjoy something not seen since the merry rule of King Joffrey – Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout. The two first brews in the collaboration series, much like Jorah Mormont, are back just when fans thought they were gone forever. Both beers will be re-released this fall on draft, in single 750ml bottles and in a first-ever collectible gift pack featuring a bottle of each and a commemorative Game of Thrones glass.

When it was originally released in 2013, Iron Throne Blonde Ale was brewed at only 25% of the volume of the most recent beer, Three-Eyed Raven, which hit stores this spring timed to Season 5 of the show. Bottle shops across the country sold out in days, while bars poured through kegs in hours. Take the Black Stout was brewed at twice the volume of Iron Throne and still sold out quickly. Fans who missed out on both of these popular brews, and those who can’t wait to try them again, will finally have a chance this fall.

Iron Throne Blonde Ale has a slightly hazy golden amber hue. The head is full and fluffy. The finish is crisp, backed by a touch of spice and hops. The aroma is a bit grassy with a hint of lemon fruitiness from the lemon peel. The taste is lightly malty, rounded by honey malt sweetness. Iron Throne Blonde Ale is 6.5% ABV.

Take the Black Stout is deep black in hue, with a full tan head. Aromas include dark chocolate, caramel malt, earthy hops, and a touch of fruitiness. Tastes include chocolate, dark coffee, and rich malt character. The beer has light, balanced roastiness aroma and taste. The clean hop bitterness converges with a slight woody character and spiciness. The finish offers sweet malt character giving way to spicy, earthy, hop bitterness. Take the Black Stout is 7.0% ABV.

The two beers will be available nationally in late September on draft, in 750ml bottles, and also in limited edition gift packs featuring a bottle of each beer plus a newly designed glass featuring the Ommegang and Game of Thrones logos in gold. Suggested retail price for the individual bottles is $9.99 and $22.99 for the gift pack. Brewery Ommegang’s beer finder will show retail and bar locations by zip code when the beers come to market.

FINAL ISSUE!!! Driven by the need to avenge his father’s murder and clear the name he himself is not permitted to bear, Jon Snow breaks his solemn vow and deserts from the Night’s Watch—an action for which there is but a single penalty: death. Meanwhile, Eddard’s heir, Robb Stark, seeks to rally his bannermen, not all of whom are eager to follow the young, unproven leader, no matter whose son he may be. And Daenerys, grief-stricken at the death of her husband, Drogo, builds a great funeral pyre to consume the hollow remnants of her life… only to find herself present at the fiery birth of a new age.

In Winterfell, Bran, troubled by strange dreams of a three-eyed crow, learns from Maester Luwin of the children of the forest, the original inhabitants of Westeros. But his lesson is interrupted by another bird—a raven, bearing grim news from King’s Landing: Lord Eddard is dead. Meanwhile, it is to that once-proud city, now stained with blood and madness, that Tyrion Lannister is dispatched by his father, Tywin, to rule as regent for the young King Joffrey. And across the sea, Daenerys learns that her son is dead… and her husband worse than dead.

Drogo is dying of his wounds. Daenerys will do anything to save him, even if it means embracing forbidden bloodmagic. But such spells carry a deadly price and, as the pregnant Dany is about to learn, that price can be far harder to bear than any graveside grieving. Now Sansa Stark, still betrothed to the mad young King Joffrey, yet no longer in love with him, finds herself as much a prisoner as Lord Eddard was, facing a fate as cruel and capricious . . . and as final.
