Fans of the HBO series "Game of Thrones" will have an opportunity to raise a flagon of ale in its honor next spring, when a new line of beers inspired by that series is introduced. HBO is set to announce that it will team up with Brewery Ommegang, a Belgian-style brewery in Cooperstown N.Y., to create beers based on themes and characters in the fantasy series adapted from the novels by George R. R. Martin.

The first beer, Iron Throne Blonde Ale, will be inaugurated nationwide in late March, to coincide with the Season 3 premiere of "Game of Thrones," which is scheduled for March 31. Three more beers are planned, with the second to be released next fall. The others will follow in subsequent seasons.

The Unofficial GoT Cookbook actually has an entire section devoted to homebrewing beer and wine from the series. Good stuff, if you know what you're doing

I'm actually looking forward to this - my nerd (and love of beer) is showing. When I first read the title of the thread I was hoping it wasn't some cheap, gimmicky crap beer they were going to make, but Ommegang is legit.

Yep. Ommegang is legit, even if the name kind of sucks They should have called it Lannister Gold or something.

Most annoying possible character for the launch beer, but w/e. If it's carried anywhere around here (unlikely), I'll try it out.
