Brewery Ommegang just announced that it is planning a fourth beer in its Game of Thrones series. The third beer, Fire and Blood, is due out this spring and the fourth beer will follow it in the fall. Voting is now open to fans to select which beer they would like to see. More below …
We’re getting back to our roots and we’re excited to brew a true, Belgian-style ale!
What will be the next Game of Thrones beer? To find out, you’ll have to ask the fans!
Game of Thrones and craft beer fans have let their opinion be heard and they love the series of Game of Thrones inspired beers, selling out the Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout in record numbers. Enthusiasm for the launch of the third beer, Fire & Blood (due end of March 2014), is also heating up.
To thank fans for their amazing support HBO Global Licensing and Brewery Ommegang are giving them the chance to help decide the name and style of the fourth beer in the series to launch fall of 2014!
Starting today fans can log onto https://www.facebook.com/GameOfThrones and vote among four great options:
Name Type Description
1) Valar Morghulis Dubbel Valar Morghulis is an Old Valyrian saying closely associated with the desire for vengeance. Thus, a Belgian-style Dubbel was chosen to capture the sweetness of revenge as well as the dangerous consequences that come with it.
2) Hand of the King Quadrupel The responsibility of running a kingdom can only be matched by the complexity of a Belgian-style Quadrupel ale. Rich in flavor and dark in color, a Quad is the perfect companion for waging war, brokering peace, or enduring a Small Council meeting.
3) Seven Kingdoms Tripel The golden Tripel is the universally agreed pinnacle of Belgian brewing achievement, making it the perfect beer to represent the legacy of the Seven Kingdoms. Though supremely drinkable, the Tripel comes with a spicy character that represents the sordid events of the history of Westeros.
4) Khal Quadrupel The Dothraki people, like the Belgian-style Quad, are the strongest of the strong and boldest of the bold. Quads rest atop the pyramid of Belgain beer because of their strength, so this style makes a fitting tribute to the men that rule the mighty Khalisars of Essos.
The voting will be open for 2 days. The selection with the most votes along with the artwork for the label will officially be announced in the spring.
