Game Of Thrones Beer: Taste Testing Ommegang's New Iron Throne Blonde Ale
You may recall the announcement of Ommegang's Game of Thrones Beer a short while ago. Well, the beer, aptly named "Iron Throne Blonde Ale," is officially on the market, and the folks over at the Huffington Post gave it a taste test.
But first, the nuts and bolts of the beer: Ommegang's brewers developed the Iron Throne Blonde Ale as a fermented stand-in for evil House Lannister, the family that ruled Westeros at the end of season two. The brewers chose a blonde ale to match the color of the Lannisters' hair. The beer is brewed with noble hops, grains of paradise and citrus peel to give it some Lannister bite.
