Game of Thrones ‘Winter Is Here’ Double White Ale

Wow! Did you catch the season 7 premiere of HBO‘s ‘Game of Thrones’? Just wow! And now from Brewery Ommegang the same folks who brought us such GoT themed beers as Fire and Blood, Iron Throne, and Valar Morghulis comes a new brew to enjoy.

It’s the ‘Winter Is Here’ which is a double white ale with a ABV (8.3%) which is brewed with “pilsner malt, white wheat malt, and soft red wheat flakes, hopped with Saaz hops, and spiced with white pepper, sea salt, coriander and sweet orange peel” with aromas of “banana, clove, and pronounced peppery phenols lead, and the flavor is slightly sweet malt, subtly balanced by hints of sea salt” and a finish that “gradually builds in a warming crescendo of peppery spice.”

It’ll be available in 750ml single bottles or you can get it as part of a collectible gift pack which also includes a bottle of the ‘Fire and Blood’ Red Ale and a commemorative glass. The suggested retail price is $11.99 for the individual bottles or $23.99 for the gift pack. You can pick it up in stores in late October.
