#ForTheThrone: HBO and Brewery Ommegang announce a new beer to celebrate the return of Game of Thrones

Published

on


While we await the new season of Game of Thrones coming out on April 14 2019, HBO is bringing us a whole lot of surprises to ease up the craving for the series. While till now, we’ve been treated with two official teasers, official character posters, and the latest official trailer, (which still gives us goosebumps) HBO in collaboration with Brewery Ommegang has announced a new beer.

The latest addition of Brewery Ommegang which had released a number of beers the last year is For The Throne. By this time, we are already familiar with the campaign of HBO to build up the hype for the new season, this beverage is a co-fermented beer brewed to uphold the campaign of HBO. According to Doug Campbell, the President of Ommegang,

“Winter is here, the wall has fallen, and the final battle for Westeros is underway. With this offering, we have bent the traditional boundaries of beer-making, co-fermenting traditional ingredients with juices normally destined for fine wines, going to great lengths to create a truly unique, special beer…This style of beer, often called an ‘oenobeer,’ is a rapidly expanding area of study for us. For The Throne is our first of co-fermentation beer of 2019 and the only one we’ve launched under the Game of Thrones banner.”

Described as ‘delicate yet complex’, this beer is 9.5% ABV strong golden ale and fermented with pinot grigio and viognier grape juices. The added Champagne yeast will surely make you feel the Lannister Royalty that exists in the World of Ice and Fire.

Also, according to Jeff Peters, Vice President of Retail and Licensing at HBO,

“In the course of planning out the next beer in our amazing collaborative partnership with Brewery Ommegang we asked the brewers ‘What would Ommegang do for the throne?’”

“Their answer was to brew this exciting and innovative co-fermented beer so that our fans can raise a toast to the culmination of their beloved series this spring. Every bottle, every pour, every toast, every sip… For The Throne!”

Golden-copper in colour, the beer pours a white fluff and has been infused with the aromas of honeysuckle and toasted grain mingle with notes of pear and apricot. Brewed with pilsner and carapils malts,  dextrose, and pinot grigio and viognier grape juices, For The Throne is suitable to be served with all kinds of cheeses, roasted chicken or turkey and smoked fish. This also works fine with desserts, macerated berries and fresh whipped cream.

With flavours of sweet malt and honeydew, the finish of the beer is clean and dry, giving it a vibrant effervescence. To be sold throughout the peak month of Game of Thrones i.e. April on Ommegang’s distribution network the beverage will come in 750 ml bottles in a wrap with a golden artwork.

Where can I buy Ommegang Game Of Thrones beer?

We are sure you must be having this question in your mind after reading this article. Rest assured, Ommegang has made it easier by adding a beer finder section on their site. In addition to that, you can also check Drizly if you want the beer delivered to your house.

Join the trail as we wait for the new season of Game of Thrones and watch out as Ommegang begins the distribution of the beverage on its network. And, let’s begins the preparation #ForTheThrone.

Many of the show’s crew have moved on to new projects, including showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Fresh leaks from the set of House of The Dragon show Targaryen camps being constructed on Holywell Beach

Fresh leaks from the set of House of The Dragon show Targaryen camps being constructed on Holywell Beach

The production for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving rather swiftly, and we might see George R. R. Martin’s prediction about the series’ release come to fruition. Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew have returned to Holywell beach, but this time, the scale of production seems to be much more massive. After recent leaks showed the crew tidying up the location for filming a rumoured battle sequence, more pictures emerged showing a Targaryen camp under construction.

The photos of the set came along with the leaks involving Daemon Targaryen, hence pointing at a connection between the two. This might be a battle camp or a camp for a tourney erected for the Targaryen prince. We also see a knight in armour in action, swinging his sword in fury. Things are getting really interesting folks!

Looking at recent leaks, we can theorize that the crew of House of The Dragon is preparing for the Tourney held at Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding ceremony. Why? Recent leaks have shown glimpses of a young Rhaenyra Targaryen with Laenor Velaryon, a battle-ready Daemon Targaryen and now a Targaryen camp.

Matt Smith spotted in Targaryen battle gear on House of The Dragon set

Behold the first look at Daemon Targaryen’s fabled family heirloom, the Valyrian Steel sword Dark Sister in her full glory!

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is one of the high priority projects at HBO currently. The production is moving swiftly despite hitting some minor obstacles along the way, as indicated by the regular leaks occurring all over the internet. Recently, some never-before-seen photos from the set were leaked by locals, and for the first time, we have an idea of what Matt Smith’s Daemon Targaryen will look like in Targaryen battle gear.

We can see in some of the pictures the crew is helping Matt get into what looks like a black leather armour. A few knights and soldiers in full body armour can be seen walking near him in another photo.

In one of the photos, Matt Smith, who’s playing Daemon Targaryen on the show, can be seen walking on the beach, his platinum blonde wig blowing in the wind as he rests one of his hands on his sword.

It looks like Daemon Targaryen is gearing up for a battle or a tourney. We couldn’t spot any dragon props or 3-D motion capture devices in the photos, so it strongly suggests they are preparing for a tourney. Depending on the timeline, we are looking at a few contenders, tourney held at King Viserys I’s ascension to the throne, tourney held on the fifth anniversary of King Viserys I and Queen Alicent’s marriage and the most plausible one being the tourney at King’s Landing for the wedding of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Ser Laenor Velaryon.

The last one seems the most obvious explanation as recent leaks of a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon were circulating recently in media. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
