As Danger reported a few days ago, HBO, Game of Thrones, and Brewery Ommegang are combining efforts for the greatest idea of all time, ever: Game of Thrones themed beer. There will be four beers in all, and the first is set to arrive in March. It’s called Iron Throne, a blonde ale — to honor the fact that a Lannister is on the throne — and it is “crafted to directly tie into themes and nuances of the medieval-like fantasy realm of Westeros and the surrounding kingdoms.” It’s 25 ounces of beer, it comes with a cork top, and it will retail for $8.50. Sound steep? Not after you get a look at the Game of Thrones beer bottle.
I cannot wait to see the beer commercials for THAT during the Super Bowl. I hope it tastes as good as it looks. I also understand that after you take one drink of Iron Throne, Siri will start calling you MAN BEAST, you will grow an extra Adam’s Apple, women will become pregnant with triplets if you wink at them, and hair will grow on your back as thick as a forest. Moreover, if you put Iron Throne in your Corgi’s water bowl, he will magically transform into a Direwolf and maul your worst enemy. TRUE STORY.
