HBO Global Licensing and Brewery Ommegang are giving Game of Thrones fans the chance to decide on the name and style of the fourth Game of Thrones beer.
The beer will launch in autumn 2014, after the arrival of the third beer in the series, Fire & Blood, in March 2014.
Fans can log onto https://www.facebook.com/GameOfThrones and vote for one of four options:
Name – Type – Description
1) Valar Morghulis – Dubbel – Valar Morghulis is an Old Valyrian saying closely associated with the desire for vengeance. Thus, a Belgian-style Dubbel was chosen to capture the sweetness of revenge as well as the dangerous consequences that come with it.
2) Hand of the King – Quadrupel – The responsibility of running a kingdom can only be matched by the complexity of a Belgian-style Quadrupel ale. Rich in flavor and dark in color, a Quad is the perfect companion for waging war, brokering peace, or enduring a Small Council meeting.
3) Seven Kingdoms – Tripel – The golden Tripel is the universally agreed pinnacle of Belgian brewing achievement, making it the perfect beer to represent the legacy of the Seven Kingdoms. Though supremely drinkable, the Tripel comes with a spicy character that represents the sordid events of the history of Westeros.
4) Khal – Quadrupel – The Dothraki people, like the Belgian-style Quad, are the strongest of the strong and Boldest of the bold. Quads rest atop the pyramid of Belgain beer because of their strength, so this style makes a fitting tribute to the men that rule the mighty Khalisars of Essos.
Voting closes tomorrow and the selection with the most votes, along with the artwork for the label, will officially be announced in the spring.
