Iron Throne Blonde Ale is a limited edition blonde ale from Brewery Ommegang in an unprecedented merchandising partnership with the television network HBO and their hit series Game of Thrones (which is adapted from the book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R.R. Martin).
The beer will be sold in 750ml corked bottles and 1/6 BBL kegs for a limited time only. The recommended retail price for a bottle will be $8.50.
It was announced in December 2012 that Brewery Ommegang and HBO had forged a partnership to begin producing limited edition, Game of Thrones inspired beers, with the intent that a new one will be released every Fall and Spring. The future of this beer series is unknown, but the Iron Throne Blonde Ale is the inaugural release. The beer was inspired by House Lannister from the series, a noble family who, in the show, currently hold power on the "Iron Throne" and are known for their beautiful blonde hair (hence the blonde ale).
