Prepare for Game of Thrones with Fire and Blood Beer

Prepare yourself for Episode 3 of season 4 of Game of Thrones with some Fire and Blood. Fire and Blood Red Ale that is. Brewed by Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY and of course licensed by HBO, this red ale is brewed with Ancho Chiles but only has a tiny hint of spice. There are three different images on the beer labels in this series, one of each of the three dragons of Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons. They are Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. I only conquered two of the three. No matter which label you are lucky enough to find in your quest for the Iron Throne, the beer is the same. A fairly mild reddish ale that has a 6.8 percent bite of alcohol. Nothing that a dragon might actually drink, but if you happen to be at a House Targaryen party it is thirst quenching nonetheless.

So what if this Game of Thrones Red Ale is in a 2007 All Star Game pint glass, all of my horn beer mugs were in the dishwasher.

But be sure not to let any young ones like Joffrey, have a drink. They just may choke.

Oh, and happy easter. May all of your eggs contain dragons. Be prepared to train them though. You can learn how here. No one likes an unruly dragon flying around setting your village on fire. Then the FAA has to go write up regulations on dragon flying and it just gets more complicated.  I hope you know what you’re getting into Khaleesi!

 

I WILL TAKE WHAT IS MINE WITH FIRE AND BLOOD.
