It was Decemeber 2012 when Brewery Ommegang first announced it would be producing a line of beers inspired by the hit HBO television series Game of Thrones. Since then, a total of four beers have been released, each promising to tie into certain themes of the show.
The first of these beers, Iron Throne Blonde Ale, called attention to the show's ruling family, the Lannisters, while Take the Black Stout paid homage to the brotherhood of the Night's Watch. A third beer, Fire and Blood Red Ale, carried the motto of House Targaryan and was released with three different labels depicting the dragons of Daenerys Targaryan, the last surviving member of the clan.
Long before home brewing was something that you regularly heard about, decades before the internet as we know it had entire brewing kits available with just a couple of clicks, and certainly quite a few years before the craft beer scene really exploded into existence, Ken Grossman and Paul Camusi were brewing beer at home and running a homebrew equipment store.
