Brewery Ommegang and HBO announce launch of Game of Thrones®-inspired Royal Reserve Collection this spring
As Game of Thrones approaches its final season, Brewery Ommegang and HBO Global Licensing are excited to announce the launch of the Royal Reserve Collection,
a collectible series of four special, limited release beers, each designed and brewed as an homage to one of four epic figures in the battle for the Seven Kingdoms.
Packaged as a series, with simple, elegant iconography and sophisticated design representative of select Westerosi houses,
each beer will be brewed and blended with ingredients selected to match the character and temperament of the chosen hero,
designed and brewed as Brewery Ommegang’s interpretation of what a royal brewer might brew for his or her noble master.
The first beer in the series is Hand of the Queen, a beer brewed for Tyrion Lannister.
As one who knows a great many things, Tyrion knows and loves wine above all else, so Hand of the Queen is a big, bold barleywine,
a beer fit for those who seek knowledge and truth, both great and small.
Available throughout Ommegang’s distribution network beginning in April, Hand of the Queen will be offered both on draft and in 750ml bottles.
The suggested retail price for a bottle is $12.99.
“While technically not royalty at all, Tyrion certainly qualifies as a nobleman in our esteem,” says Doug Campbell, President of Brewery Ommegang.
“We’ve wanted to brew for Tyrion for six seasons, and we believe his time has come. Knowing his preferences, our beer for Tyrion could only be a barleywine.”
“Ommegang’s collection of Game of Thrones beers has been an enduring hit with our fans, so we’re excited to offer them even more opportunities to pay
tribute to their favorite characters next year by releasing four new and special releases,” says Jeff Peters, Vice President of Global Licensing at HBO.
“And, of course, who better to receive our first tribute than Tyrion, the man who so famously drinks and knows things.”
Brewed with a complex blend of specialty malts and carefully-selected old-world hops, Hand of the Queen is a rich, full-bodied version of a classic barleywine
and comes in at 10.7% ABV. Malt forward and multifaceted, the beer balances the intense flavors of brandy-soaked raisins and dark fruit with the lighter notes of apricot.
Hints of molasses and toffee are evident before a finish characterized by the classic yet distinctive barleywine alcoholic heat.
Hand of the Queen, an old-world example of the style, attempts to balance these strong yet unruly opposing forces, much like the way Tyrion maintains the balance of power among his influential contemporaries in Westeros.
The Royal Reserve Collection will feature four brand new beers in the brewery’s Game of Thrones-inspired series with HBO.
All of the beers will be available on draft and in 750ml bottles and they’ll
launch in April, July, October, and December for 2018.
Details and images of future beers will be announced throughout the year.
From New South Brewing in Myrtle Beach. Was down there recently helping my folks out. Always bring some of this DIPA home when I can.
This little brewery distributes a couple of their offerings, but not this one. It's "seasonal" but it must be a long season.
Classy sticker labeling over their Nut Brown Ale can. But it is yummy!
My 11.5 years old Xterra is still in perfect shape but it's my daily driver and I was thinking of replacing it...but for what?
I did searched this site to know what others bought to replace their X but did not find anything. I guessed they just sold the X and did not return in here to tell about...
Seeing how this is a Nissan forum I am guessing the majority will say yes.
I doubt I will be a return customer due to the following.
Apparently they are cheaping out; no more cross bars, engine cover, side molding, 3m paint protection, cargo cover, tracks, cargo basket, tie downs, cam bolts...
93k miles. On a trip I noticed it losing power when I was accelerating, then it would pick up again and go. Today I turned it on and sat there for a minute or so and the engine just stopped. I turned it off and back on and it was good. But going down the road it wouldn’t accelerate and then it...
Well, really tired of it and I don't think the news media is helping either. My wife is an oncology Nurse Practioner and an instructor for Carrington college on the weekend which she teaches clinicals in the hospital on the weekend, and being that close to people who could catch the virus and...
I need a new vacuum cleaner. Looking for something rugged that will last a long time.
Leaning towards canister, but could be swayed toward upright (I had a hoover upright that I hated because the hose was so short, whole thing would constantly fall over -- stairs were impossible.)
