When fans last gripped their glasses at the end of Game of Thrones' sixth season, the great houses of Westeros were on the brink of an epic conflict. Cersei had ascended to the Iron Throne as the first queen of Westeros, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark had just reclaimed the North, and Daenerys Targaryen had set sail for the Seven Kingdoms. To commemorate the coming mêlée in the Emmy® Award-winning show’s epic seventh season, Brewery Ommegang and HBO Global Licensing are excited to announce a new beer in their collaborative series: Bend the Knee Golden Ale.
Game of Thrones (GoT) Collaborative Release Series Beer: 3 Collectible Bottles
Paying homage to the struggle for control of the Seven Kingdoms, Bend the Knee will be available on draft and in a series of three collectible 750ml bottles, all finished in matte black and adorned with one of the three Great House sigils: Stark, Targaryen, or Lannister.
And while the show returns on July 16, fans can mark their calendars for the official nationwide release of the beer, which will be on shelves around Memorial Day.
Bend the Knee (GoT) Beer Review
"With this next Game of Thrones-inspired release, we wanted a beer and a pack that was fit for a king… or a queen," said Brewery Ommegang President, Doug Campbell. The wildflower honey-brewed drink will be a perfect way to kick off the summer with a mixture of "maltiness and citrus" and a "light sweetness," dry finish, and "firm hop bitterness."
