There is no better way to kill time than by sharing a pint of beer with your pals, while you wait around for the next season of your favorite show to release. Ommegang probably understands this and maybe it’s the reason why the brewery will be releasing a new “Game of Thrones” inspired beer! Yes, you read that right!
Die-hard “Game of Thrones” will probably be running low on patience, given that they have been waiting for Season 6 to arrive, which will reveal Jon Snow’s fate. Ommegang’s “Game of Thrones”-inspired Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale should make waiting around a tad bit easier. The brewery has tied up with the very popular HBO series to bring to its fans a beer which takes its inspiration from show.
The Ommegang brewery which is situated in Cooperstown, N.Y. made the announcement on Twitter, much to the delight of “Game of Thrones” fans.

According to Ommegang, the Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale is “a marriage of a traditional Belgian-style wheat and a hop-forward American ale – but unlike so many of the marriages on the show, the resulting hoppy wheat is pleasant, playful and inspired.”
The Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale should arrive in liquor stores in March next year, that is a month before the Season 6 premieres. Fans ages 21 and up can get their hands on the 750ml bottle which will cost about $9.99. Fans should note that the brewery doesn’t distribute to North Dakota, South Dakota, Mississippi, West Virginia, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
As shared by International Business Times, this isn’t the first time that the brewery has launched a “Game of Thrones”-inspired beer, it has previously made available options ranging from Fire and Blood Red Ale, Iron Throne Blonde Ale, Take the Black Stout and Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison amongst others. If you didn’t get hold of those, try the newest edition next year.
As noted by the site, production is wrapping on Season 6 of “Game of Thrones” and fans have already been treated to a new teaser. Just in case you missed it take a look at it here:
