The hottest news coming out of the Great American Beer Festival’s first session Oct. 10 was the announcement of the third beer in the Game of Thrones-inspired series from Brewery Ommegang and HBO. Fire and Blood Red Ale, inspired by House Targaryen, follows Iron Throne Blonde Ale (Spring 2013) and Take the Black Stout (available now). While the beer won’t be released until Spring 2014, a sneak peak of artwork incorporated in the label was revealed and will feature the three Targaryen dragons: Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion (see attached photo).
Unlike any other collaboration in beer realm history, Ommegang and HBO are creating smash hit after smash hit with this series. Iron Throne Blonde Ale set an Ommegang sales record as their fastest selling limited edition beer to date. Take the Black Stout is breaking that record and the third GoT-inspired brew is sure to take it a step further.
Fire and Blood Red Ale will debut in Spring 2014 through Ommegang’s nationwide distributors. Stay tuned for tasting notes and additional information.
