Brewery Ommegang to debut its latest Game of Thrones-themed ale this spring

Ale

Good news! The drinks list for your Game of Thrones season premiere party just got longer. Brewery Ommegang has announced that they will debut their Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale this March … just in time for season 6!

Seven Kingdoms will be the sixth beer the brewery has made through its partnership with HBO, a collaboration that has also produced Iron Throne Blonde Ale, Take the Black Stout, Fire and Blood Red Ale, Valar Morghulis Dubbel Ale and Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison Ale.

Brewery Ommegang describes Seven Kingdoms as “a marriage of a traditional Belgian-style wheat and a hop-forward American ale – but unlike so many of the marriages on the show, the resulting hoppy wheat is pleasant, playful and inspired. At 6.9% (alcohol by volume) it possesses a nuanced complexity that pairs nicely with the hop-forward characteristics that make it surprisingly refreshing.”

Mike McManus, Brewery Ommegang’s innovation manager, spoke of the inspiration the brewery took from Game of Thrones in creating Seven Kingdoms.

“This last season, the imaginativeness of the show was pretty astounding so we aimed for a beer that could hope to match that. A fusion of two wonderful styles was an idea that really excited our team.”

So, get ready. It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere in Westeros.

    2. At 6.9% ABV, this one look like it will have a nice enough kick along with a nice taste. Check out the full brewery description http://www.ommegang.com/blog/

      I’ve been to the brewery and found it to be worthy of a special trip every year, especially during festival season during the summer.

    3. For a second I thought “Brewery Ommegang” was a new actor who has made his “debut” in the “latest Game of Thrones” season.

    4. Just tried the Iron Throne ale and Take the Black Stout last week. Liked them both for different reasons, but I mostly bought them in the gift set to score the GoT beer glass it came with. I’ll definitely be looking for the wheat ale next spring!

    5. As a (Flemmish) Belgian, I love Belgian beer!
      We are good for chocolate, waffles and beer! And also French fries, which is actually also from Belgium and not from France (we are the only ones who can make it taste right)!

      And I love Game of Thrones!

    9. Ok so based on their description, Dorne (“married in” to form the 7K) is either the Belgian Wheat or the Hoppy American Ale. Which is it??

    10. The Dragon Demands:
      MAKE “ARBOR GOLD”.MAKE “DORNISH RED”.

      Good ones. I support that. How about “TEARS of LYS” as well? (190 proof)

      Also, what would be a fine beverage to accompany “Bowls of Brown”?
