Game of Thrones & Ommegang Are Teaming Up For Its Line's Latest Beer, 'Winter Is Here'

by The Drink Nation on Jul 11, 2017 in Culture

 
Just ahead of the July 16 premiere of HBO’s megahit series Game of Thrones, Ommegang has announced its latest Westeros-themed release: a Belgian-style double white ale called Winter is Here.

Though it won’t actually arrive in stores until the fall, that’s likely for the best, as the ale is designed to be a warming, comforting brew in the face of Games of Thrones’ legendarily long and cold winters, and is spiced with white pepper, sea salt, coriander, and sweet orange peel.

Upon its arrival, Winter is Here will be sold not just in 750ml bottles, but also in a unique combination pack with a re-release of the line’s spicy red ale, Fire and Blood, which also comes with a collectible glass, so Game of Thrones fans and beer collectors alike will want to jump at the chance to snap this one up.

Season 7 of Thrones will likely have have run its course by the time this beer hits shelves, but in any case, you’ll want to stock up — winter isn’t coming anymore, and you’ll need to prepare.
