In anticipation of Sunday’s (April 6) fourth season premiere of “Game of Thrones,” Brewery Ommegang has released the third in its series of beers tied in with the fantasy drama.
Fire and Blood is a red ale brewed with rye and spelt, with ancho chilies providing the “fire.” Alcohol by volume is 6.8%.
The limited-edition brew is available in 750 mL bottles. For you collectors out there, the brewery is producing the beer with three unique labels this time around, each depicting a different dragon from the show.
You should be able to find it where you normally shop for craft beer, but smaller liquor stores appear to be selling out quickly.
