Ommegang Hand of the Queen will expand the brewery’s Game of Thrones Series again this spring.
The next four Game of Thrones releases will be known as The Royal Reserve, inspired by the royals of Westeros. In this case, the Hand of the Queen Tyrion Lannister, hand to Danaerys Targaryen (rightful queen of Westeros).
Tyrion Lannister might be small in stature, but his personality and character are quite large. Given his love of wine (I drink, and I know things), Ommegang chose a big, bold barleywine to embody this well known Lannister.
“We’ve wanted to brew for Tyrion for six seasons, and we believe his time has come. Knowing his preferences, our beer for Tyrion could only be a barleywine.” – Doug Campbell, President of Brewery Ommegang
This 11% alcohol by volume barleywine is described as “malt-forward and multifaceted”. Expect hints of brandy soaked raisins, dark fruit, and apricots. Expect 750-milliliter bottles to hit shelves in April 2018.
Very apropos for the coming of the winter solstice this week, Ommegang Winter is Here is currently on shelves, featuring the Night King who leads the freaky army of Nightwalkers.
Availability: 750ml Bottles
Debut: April 2018
