With Take the Black Stout now in stores, Brewery Ommegang has set their sights on the next beer in their popular Game of Thrones inspired line. At the Great American Beer Festival last week, they unveiled the name and label design for this upcoming brew.
The dragon has three heads. As the image notes, Fire and Blood Red Ale is set to debut in Spring 2014. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for more details, but in the meantime you can check out the full press release, below the cut.
Winter Is Coming: Nice labels! Daenerys would approve. As I mentioned at the top of the post, Take the Black Stout is currently available. Use Ommegang’s Beer Finder to find a location near you that stocks it. I have tasted it and it is good. Go forth and procure some of your own, you won’t be disappointed.
Ommegang and HBO Heat Up GABF with Fire and Blood Red Ale Reveal
(COOPERSTOWN, NY) The hottest news coming out of the Great American Beer Festival’s first session on Thursday, October 10 was the announcement of the third beer in the Game of Thrones-inspired series from Brewery Ommegang and HBO. Fire and Blood Red Ale, inspired by House Targaryen, follows Iron Throne Blonde Ale (Spring 2013) and Take the Black Stout (available now). While the beer won’t be released until Spring 2014, a sneak peak of artwork incorporated in the label was revealed and will feature the three Targaryen dragons: Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion.
Unlike any other collaboration in beer realm history, Ommegang and HBO are creating smash hit after smash hit with this series. Iron Throne Blonde Ale set an Ommegang sales record as their fastest selling limited edition beer to date. Take the Black Stout is breaking that record and the third GoT-inspired brew is sure to take it a step further.
Fire and Blood Red Ale will debut in Spring 2014 through Ommegang’s nationwide distributors. Stay tuned for tasting notes and additional information.
