Brewery Ommegang is releasing “Fire and Blood,” the newest in their line of Game of Thrones-themed beer on March 31st
These are the three designs for the new Game of Thrones beer which will be available in stores at the end of the month.
A Lannister always drinks his draughts. Brewery Ommegang has just announced the release of “Fire and Blood,” the latest in their line of Game of Thrones-inspired ales, which will hit stores on March 31st, coinciding with the premiere of the much-anticipated fourth season on April 6th.
Fire and Blood” is inspired by House Targaryen’s motto, and the bottles have three different designs featuring Daenerys Targaryen’s three dragons: Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion. The beer is brewed with pilsner, spelt, rye, and is spiced with ancho chilies (for that dragon-fire taste).The beer itself is dark red, and the tasting notes include “fruit with sweet malt character that give way to faint dryness.”
“Obviously the use of ancho chilies pays homage to the dragons, but the use of rye and spelt wheat links back to the Dothraki people that Daenerys is leading — they are nomads of the plains and these are the grains that would be well at home there,” said Brewery Ommegang Brewmaster Phil Leinhart in a statement.

See the First Photos From Game of Thrones Prequel House of the Dragon
One word to describe the first images from the new Game of Thrones prequel? Dracarys.
On Wednesday, May 5, HBO released sneak peek photos of scenes from the upcoming 10-episode fantasy spinoff series House of the Dragon, which recently began production. The show focuses on "Mother of Dragons" Daenerys Targaryen's ancestors from House Targaryen and takes place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, which ended its eight-season run in 2019.
The new series stars Ready Player One actress Olivia Cooke, Rhys Ifans, Emma Dɺrcy, Doctor Who and The Crown alum Matt Smith, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best and Paddy Considine as King Viserys I Targaryen (yes, Daenerys' horrible brother was named after him).
House of the Dragon was co-created by Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin. The show is based on his 2018 book Fire & Blood, which depicts the history of House Targaryen, first introduced in his A Song of Ice and Fire novels, on which the Game of Thrones TV series was based.
House of the Dragon began filming last week. Production will take place in Iceland, Croatia, Morocco and England.
See the first photos of House of the Dragon:
In May 2019, HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones ended its eight-season run. That fall, the network announced it was developing a prequel, House of the Dragon, focusing on Emilia Clarke's character Daenerys Targaryen's ancestors. HBO ordered 10 episodes of the new show, and production began in April 2021.
Concept art for House of the Dragon was released in December 2020.
The dragons in House of the Dragon are just as majestic as the ones in Game of Thrones.
The eldest child of King Viserys appears with her uncle and the monarch's younger brother.
Rhaenyra is of pure Valyrian blood and is a dragonrider. HBO states, "Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything…but she was not born a man."
As the younger brother to King Viserys, the fifth Targaryen king to occupy the Iron Throne, Daemon is heir to the throne. "A peerless warrior and a dragonrider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon," HBO states. "But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air…"
. aka the Sea Snake. HBO describes his character as "the most famed nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros," saying that he "built his house into a powerful seat that is even richer than the Lannisters and that claims the largest navy in the world."
Alicent Hightower appears with her father, Ser Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King.
Alicent is described as "the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms." She was raised in the Red Keep and "possesses both a courtly grace and a keen political acumen."
According to HBO, Otto "loyally and faithfully serves both his king and his realm. As the Hand sees it, the greatest threat to the realm is the king's brother," Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by Matt Smith, "and his position as heir to the throne."

I think it was Rorge who may have said…
“I drank beer with my friends, almost everyone did. Sometimes I had too many beers. Sometimes others did. I liked beer. I still like beer. but i did not drink beer to the point of passing out. Yes, we drank beer. My friends and I, the boys and girls. Yes, we drank beer. I liked beer. Still like beer. We drank beer.
Yeah, we drank beer, and I said sometimes — sometimes probably had too many beers, and sometimes other people had too many beers…. We drank beer. We liked beer. I like beer. I like beer. I don’t know if you do…. Do you like beer?”
Essence of chocolate you say? Hm, I’ll have to hunt this down at World Market.
On an unrelated note (sorry if it’s too OT), did anyone see poor Alfie Allen’s instagram story about his beloved puppy going missing/stolen? So sad! Hope he gets the pup back.
all the beers in this line are pretty awesome. Each one is distinct and mirrors the character they are made for. Although Queen Cersei would be drinking a good hearty red.
Brewery Ommegang’s Game Of Thrones themed beer – ‘Mother of Dragons’ releasing on September 28th
Game of Thrones Season 8 is months away but, this exciting news will definitely lessen up your cravings. Well, the good news is that Brewery Ommegang’s third beer in the Game of Thrones based ‘Royal Reserve Collection’ is releasing on September 28th. The beer is named ‘Mother of Dragons’ – inspired by the Dragon Queen Daenerys Targaryen.
‘Mother of Dragons’ is a deep ruby-tinted mahogany with a creamy tan head and is a joint venture of both Brewery Ommegang and HBO. The description of the beverage reads:
“Mother of Dragons pours a deep ruby-tinted mahogany with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate covered cherries intertwine with subtle smoke and roasted malt. The flavor is rich with tart cherry up front leading to a center palate of semi-sweet chocolate then resolving to subtle smoke and mild sweetness”
“The mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy and full, and the finish is semi-dry with lingering notes of smoke and cherry sweetness. Mother of Dragons is 6.5% ABV and pairs well with smoked gouda and charcuterie, braised meats, and rich desserts like flourless chocolate cake and cherry cheesecake.”
The beer was announced back in July and according to Brewery Ommegang President Doug Campbell, “Mother of Dragons represents in beer one of our favorite characters from Game of Thrones. Daenerys’s ascent from obscurity has been one of the most inspiring storylines of the show and we’re thrilled to release a blend that embodies the character traits that have underpinned that rise.” The third beer of the 2018 Royal Reserve Collection is all set to release on September 28.
Apart from Mother of Dragons, the other three beverages in the Royal Reserve Collection namely 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 King in the North, a barrel-aged imperial stout (named after Jon Snow) – which is all set to release on November 23.
So now that the wait for this awesome beverage is finally over, how many of you are excited to have a taste? Tell us in the comments.
Game of Thrones Beer
Iron Throne Blonde Ale (released March 2013): The first official GoT beer released by New York’s Brewery Ommegang launched in the lead up to Season 3. This easy-drinking blonde brewed with lemon peel and grains of paradise was re-released in September 2015, but is currently out of production/distribution according to the brewery.
Take the Black Stout (released September 2013): Ommegang’s second GoT beer, this 7-percent ABV stout was also re-released in September 2015. Though the brewery says the beer is currently out of production/distribution, strong stouts can sometimes age well, so if you are able to hunt down a bottle, this brew might still be drinkable today.
Fire and Blood Red Ale (released March 2014): The third GoT beer was an amber ale spiced with ancho chilies. The brew was re-released in October 2017 but is currently out of production/distribution.
Valar Morghulis Dubbel Ale (released October 2014): The fourth GoT beer was a Belgian style billed as being licately balanced with rich malty sweetness, caramel and just enough bitterness to balance out its malty backbone.” The brew was re-released with the October 2016 launch of Valar Dohaeris, but is currently out of production/distribution. However, once again, dubbels can sometimes age well, so an old bottle may still be enjoyable.
Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison Ale (released April 2015): The first GoT beer of 2015, this brew was mysteriously billed as 𠇊 Dark Saison ale, a hybrid style open to brewer’s imagination” that is “neither a pure saison nor your typical dark beer.” The beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution.
Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale (released April 2016): After a year wait, Brewery Ommegang returned with a sixth GoT beer that was a easier drinking Hoppy Wheat, a mix between a Belgain-style wheat (not unlike Blue Moon) and a hop-forward American ale. This beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution.
Valar Dohaeris Tripel Ale (released October 2016): Based on a traditional Belgian style, this seventh GoT beer is a copper-tinted, 9-percent ABV tripel “with a bright sweetness thanks to the Belgian candi sugar” that finishes “moderately dry and effervescent with just a hint of Belgian yeast character.” The beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution, but is likely still enjoyable today.
Bend the Knee Golden Ale (released May 2017): For its eight GoT brew, Ommegang opted for a huge 9-percent ABV Belgian-style beer brewed with pilsner malt and flaked oats and hopped with Saaz, Bravo, and Styrian Golding hops. The beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution.
Winter Is Here Double White Ale (released October 2017): The ninth GoT beer, and last of 2017, is 𠇊n 8.3-percent ABV Belgian-style double white ale with the fearsome Night King emblazoned on the label.” The beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution.
Hand of the Queen (released April 2018): Potentially realizing that keeping track of the previous nine beers was getting a bit complicated, in December 2017, Brewery Ommegang announced they𠆝 be taking a slightly different approach in 2018 by incrementally releasing four beers throughout the year as part of a “Royal Reserve Collection.” The first one, Hand of the Queen, was an 11-percent ABV barleywine. Though Ommegang says you’re not likely to find this aging-worthy beer on store shelves in its 750-milliliter form, it will also be re-released in a mixed four-pack of 12-ounce bottles with the rest of the collection “just in time for the holidays.”
Queen of the Seven Kingdoms (released June 2018): The second beer in the Royal Reserve Collection was Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, billed as 𠇊n exceptional blend of Belgian sour ale and Belgian-style blonde ale” brewed in honor of Cersei Lannister. Ommegang says it’s likely still available in some areas, and BeerMenus.com shows plenty of places selling the brew. That said, it will also return as part of the aforementioned holiday mixed-four pack.
Mother of Dragons (released September 2018): The third beer in the Royal Reserve Collection is an interesting mix of smoked porter and Belgian kriek, or a smoky dark beer mixed with a tart cherry beer. It’s currently in stores now, but will also return as part of the holiday mixed-four pack.
King in the North (scheduled for November 23, 2018): In August, Brewery Ommegang announced the plans for its final release in the four-part Royal Reserve Collection and its final Game of Thrones beer of 2018. King in the North will be a massive barrel-aged imperial stout intended as a tribute to Jon Snow. The brew will appear on its own in a 750-milliliter bottle with a suggested retail price of $12.99, or if you missed any of the other Royal Reserve beers, all four will be sold together as 𠇊 one-of-a-kind gift pack, just in time for the holidays.”
As a side note, all beer availability information comes directly from the producer, Brewery Ommegang, but that doesn’t mean you might not be able to find these beers either hidden away on store shelves or through the secondary market. Keep in mind that some beers age much better than others—specifically, high ABV beers are more likely to age well—so buy older bottles at your own risk!
When and where can you get a bottle for yourself?
Want one? They’ll be available early April nationwide. Start searching to see if For the Throne is already available near you by going to Ommegang’s Beer Finder page. Simply enter your zip code to begin the search! When you find one, hurry! We have a feeling these are going to go fast.
Other Game of Thrones beers available are: Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, Mother of Dragons, King in the North, and Hand of the Queen. Keep in mind, with these being past releases, quantity may be limited. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to try to collect them all!

COPPERSTOWN, N.Y. — With the final season of Game of Thrones debuting in just over a month, a brewery and America’s favorite cookie are releasing “For the Throne” themed treats.
Oreo confirmed earlier this week on Instagram that GoT themed cookies are happening. Unfortunately, they didn’t provide us with any information about their debut.
Cookies are coming.
A post shared by OREO (@oreo) on Feb 23, 2019 at 12:43pm PST
Instagram food blogger @candyhunting shared an image of what the GoT Oreo’s packaging may look like. The blogger said the cookies are just “normal Oreos in a redesigned package” and “are not exclusive to a particular store.”
Although there has not been an official release date, @candyhunting said the cookies will be out before the debut of the final season.
Meanwhile, Brewery Ommegang, located in New York state, is also celebrating the end of the show.
The brewery has released GoT themed beers season after season, but now they are releasing a new flavor, appropriately titled For The Throne, to accompany you at your final season premiere party.
The brewery said on social media the “delicate yet complex” blend was largely influenced by the HBO hit’s final season.
According to their website, For the Throne is their “tribute to the final occupant of the Iron Throne.”
The beer is also Ommegang’s first attempt at co-fermentation. The 9.5% ABV golden ale was created with pinot grigio and viognier grape juices and bottled conditioned with champagne yeast.
“For The Throne will be available at the brewery beginning Friday, March 8, and throughout the realm by the beginning of April,” the company announced on Instagram Wednesday.
The brewery says For the Throne is “an ale fit for royalty.” You can learn more about purchasing the brew on Ommegang’s website, here.
