If waiting for Game of Thrones to return has you feeling bluer than the Night King, there’s a new brew to help you drink away your woes. This time, it’s inspired by Jon Snow.
Brewery Ommegang and HBO have teamed up once again to put the essence of Westeros in a bottle, and who better than the Bastard of Winterfell to cap off the final season of George R.R. Martin’s hit series? Called “King in the North,” the beer is a barrel-aged imperial stout, and , it pairs well with “funky aged cheeses, rich dark meats, and decadent desserts.” It's good to be King.
King in the North will be available in November at Ommegang's brewery in Cooperstown, New York, and wherever great beers are sold. And for serious Thrones addicts, the beer will be part of a special gift pack, featuring three other Royal Reserve Collection beers: "Hand of the Queen," a barley wine; "Queen of the Seven Kingdoms," a sour blonde; and "Mother of Dragons," a smoked porter and kriek blend.
The pack also includes your own collectible glass, so you can let everyone know: You’re not just a beer nerd, you’re also a nerd nerd.
