Ommegang  Brewery
       Cooperstown
, NY
  Game of
Thrones: Fire & Blood
  A malty red rye ale with assertive hoppiness and spicy notes from ancho chilies

"Fire and Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt and slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and imagespicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops and rye. Underlying flavors of raisin and prune from the ancho chilies give way to a balanced malty and spicy finish."
“I will take what is mine with Fire & Blood.”
"Named after the motto of House Targaryen, Fire and Blood is inspired by Daenerys Targaryen and her three dragons, Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. To celebrate the rebirth of dragons, three different labels were created by the Game of Thrones visual effects specialists, each depicting one of Daenerys' feared dragons. Randomly distributed amongst the cases, each case will contain all three bottles."
This collaboration brew is  released to coincide with the debut of season 4 of the popular HBO series. It is the third Games of Thrones beer Ommegang has made.
   750 ml btl.           6.8% abv
   Limited release. Quantities are limited.
