Brewery Ommegang and HBO present the latest release in the GoT Series…
Featuring the fearsome Night King on the label, this Belgian-style double white ale pairs perfectly with friends on the couch watching the latest episode and popcorn with loads of butter.
Not a Witbier fan, fear not!
The GoT Beer Series has a beer for every palate:
Bend the Knee (American Blonde)
Fire and Blood (Red Ale)
Iron Throne (Belgian Pale Ale)
Seven Kingdoms (American Pale Wheat Ale)
Valar Dohaeris (Tripel)
Valar Morghulis (Dubbel)
Like most of Brewery Ommegang’s beers this is a Belgian style beer. A Witbier to be precise, but like the Night King himself, it packs a mean punch coming in at 8.3% ABV hence the double. According to our article What Does Your Beer Style say About Your Mood Belgian Whites mean you are passionate and if there is one thing we know about GoT fans they’ve got passion!
Spoiler: One of the three dragons dies, but then emerges as the WHITE DRAGON!!!! An ice dragon that Fs things up. *BOOOM!!!* Man we love GoT!!!
