The latest offering in the Ommegang Brewery line of Game of Thrones beers is Fire and Blood. This one is said to be an homage to Daenerys Targaryen’s three dragons; Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. They’ve even made three different labels with one representing each.
Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.
This special limited edition brew will be available beginning on March 31st, just in time to enjoy before the show’s return on April 6th.
