Last week, we featured Outlander wine. This week, we discovered that official Game Of Thrones wine on the way. You may be familiar with Game of Thrones beer by Brewery Ommegang, but wine is the official beverage of GoT, so it’s only fitting they get their own special vintages.
Vintage Wine Estates will release three different Game of Thrones wines—a red blend and a Chardonnay have a suggested retail of $19.99, while the Cabernet Sauvignon will retail around $39.99. They should be available starting in March 2017.
I wish the names of the wine were in the spirit of vintners in the Seven Kingdoms, but the bottles are pretty and it’s wine. Hard to go wrong.

Brewery Ommegang announced the continuation of their line of official Game of Thrones line beers with Valar Dohaeris Tripel Ale back in July, but they’ve just released an image of the final product before it launches on October 10th. The collectible gift pack pictured above includes a re-release of Valar Morghulis Dubbel Ale along with a commemorative glass.
Valar Dohaeris is 9% ABV, brewed with pils, wheat and oats, flaked barley, and hopped with noble hops. It pours a beautiful copper-tinted hue with a full, fluffy white head. Sweet grain and honey are prevalent in the aroma. The flavor opens with a bright sweetness thanks to the Belgian candi sugar used in brewing. The finish is moderately dry and effervescent with just a hint of Belgian yeast character.

Using Game of Thrones book series A Song Of Ice And Fire as inspiration, Cocktail Chemistry created a themed drink that is simultaneously frozen and flaming.
As you’ll see in the video below, the recipe requires a delicate hand, patience and caution. It will also give you a brief, entertaining show before it helps get you bombed. [click to continue…]
Watch as artist/madman Valeriano Fatica frees the Night King from his juicy and delicious prison. Clearly, it’s your duty to eat as many watermelons as you can this summer to prevent a White Walker uprising.
See how this sculpture was created in the video below. [click to continue…]
You know what would be perfect for a Game of Thrones finale-watching feast? Cookies. I don’t think you’ll find an authentic Westeros recipe in the official cookbook, but you CAN use this GoT-inspired embossing rolling pin to add a little flair to your cookies, crackers, pies, cakes and more.

After the events of Game Of Thrones episode “The Door”, it’s a good thing Kristian Nairn has a big heart and a great sense of humor because it’s pretty clear both will be needed in the aftermath of the episode.
The love for both Kristian and Hodor came in the form of a cake from the W Hotel’s pastry chef Rachel Newman. Nairn was kind enough to share the cake with Isaac Hempstead Wright who plays Bran.
Knowing that these two are friends and how loved Hodor is makes me feel a lot better. Check out more pics after the break…
