Fans everywhere, are you ready for some more Game of Thrones inspired alcohol? In collaboration with HBO, Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY is bringing us a Westeros-themed beer ahead of the final season premiere. The “For the Throne” beer will be available on March 8 at the brewery itself, and will be readily available across the nation at the beginning of April. So, don’t worry if you can’t make it to Cooperstown; you’ll still be able to get your hands on some of this.

Brewery Ommegang has been making beers for HBO for years, with this as the climax. President Doug Campbell shared his enthusiasm about the beer and the upcoming final season of Game of Thrones:

"Winter is here, the Wall has fallen, and the final battle for Westeros is underway. With this offering, we have bent the traditional boundaries of beer-making, co-fermenting traditional ingredients with juices normally destined for fine wines, going to great lengths to create a truly unique, special beer. This style of beer often called an ‘oenobeer,’ is a rapidly expanding area of study for us. For The Throne is our first of co-fermentation beer of 2019 and the only one we’ve launched under the Game of Thrones banner."

So what can you look forward to when it comes to the taste and quality? According to the brewery’s press release, “This 9.5% ABV strong golden ale is co-fermented with pinot grigio and viognier grape juices and then bottle conditioned with Champagne yeast to create an ale fit for royalty.” This drink will pair well with everything from cheese to poultry to fish to desserts. It will be available on draft with gold artwork embellishing the look of the beer. You can find even more detailed information here.
