Review: Game of Thrones Fire & Blood Red Ale

Living in Game of Thrones’ land of Westeros can’t be easy. There are icy-sword wielding zombies, winters last for decades, the king is a major jerkface and, fast but not least, there are dragons.  New York’s Brewery Ommegang can help (or at least pay homeage to) some of those complexities with the upcoming release of their newest Game of Thrones-inspired brew, Fire and Blood Red Ale. Ommegang sent a bottle to us early to sample (all hail the brewery in the North!).

Like Khaleesi’s aforementioned dragons who adorn the bottles’ labels (there will be a different bottle for each of the reptilian beasts), the beer is meant to bring some heat since they brew it with ancho chiles and spicy hops. In actuality, it’s a bit more mellow than you’d expect from something called “fire and blood,” but it does live up to its serpentine image with a suitably roast-y bite. There’s also some rye in the mix to add to the kick, or it may have something to do with harvesting the Dothraki plains, or maybe they realized you can’t spell “Targaryen” without “a rye grant.” Anyway, it’s a good-tasting beer and we recommend it whether you’re into the show or not.

The 750ml (over a pint and a half) bottles hit stores on March 31, in time for the April 6 premiere of the show’s fourth season. You can get more info here.
