This year ends with a number of surprises from HBO and Game of Thrones – firstly, a 3-second-long footage from the eighth season, then the first exclusive image, and finally the official announcement of the airing month. And now it’s time to finally bring in the final instalment of Brewery Ommegang’s Royal Reserve Collection – the ‘King in the North’ beer.

The beer was announced back in August and is fourth and the final beverage from the Royal Reserve Collection. It’s a barrel-aged imperial stout named after Jon Snow A.K.A. Aegon Targaryen which will be available from November 23, at a cost of $12.99.

While announcing the beer Doug Campbell, the President of Brewery Ommegang had revealed:

“There was only one character with whom we could end the Royal Reserve Collection…I don’t think we’re alone in our hopes for Jon Snow. And for those who missed one of the Collections during the year, we’re pleased to offer the opportunity to get all four at once, along with a glass in which to serve them.”

The King in the North as described in the official announcement by Ommegang is “Infused with the rich aromas of roasted malt, coffee, bourbon, and vanilla, King in the North tastes the best with aged cheeses, dark meats, and decadent desserts. It also makes a great dessert on its own.”

HBO’s Vice President of Licensing & Retail Jeff Peters too had said, “We’ve now arrived at our fourth and final Royal Reserve beer which celebrates Jon Snow with a big, bold, barrel-aged stout for the long cold nights to come. We expect this one to bring our fans to their feet to toast the King in the North!”

The other beverages previously released from the collection include Hand of the Queen (a barleywine named after Tyrion Lannister), Queen of the Seven Kingdoms (a sour blonde blend named after Cersei Lannister), and Mother of Dragons (a deep ruby-tinted mahogany named after Daenerys Targaryen).

And now that the final beverage of this collection is here, how many of you will collect all of these to make the months of April and May even more delightful when the new season of Game of Thrones finally airs? Tell us in the comments.

It turns out Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a major Game Of Thrones spoiler after all

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.

Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.

In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.

And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.

“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”

She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.

“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.

Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost reunion in the series finale

Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!

Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

How did you react to Jon reuniting with Ghost and finally petting him? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream

no game of thrones sequel says hbo executive

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!
