All of the 'Game of Thrones' Booze You Can Buy and Collect (So Far)
Can we interest you in 13 beers, 4 wines, and 9 whiskies?
When the final season of Game of Thrones finally arrives during the still-vague time period of the first half of 2019, the return is sure to cause mixed emotions: After well over a year of waiting, fans will certainly be overjoyed, but sadness is sure to kick at the realization that the series is coming to an end. Luckily, alcoholic beverages pair well with both joy and sadness, and since the show debuted back on April 17, 2011, we’ve seen a mind-boggling number of official GoT-inspired beers, wines, and spirits hitting the market.
Adding to that list, this week, White Walker by Johnnie Walker officially reached retail—along with the announcement of eight more single malt Scotches to come. For those looking to send Game of Thrones out with a bang, here’s a list of all the Game of Thrones’ booze that has been released or announced up until this point—as well as your odds of obtaining it.
Game of Thrones Beer
Iron Throne Blonde Ale (released March 2013): The first official GoT beer released by New York’s Brewery Ommegang launched in the lead up to Season 3. This easy-drinking blonde brewed with lemon peel and grains of paradise was re-released in September 2015, but is currently out of production/distribution according to the brewery.
Take the Black Stout (released September 2013): Ommegang’s second GoT beer, this 7-percent ABV stout was also re-released in September 2015. Though the brewery says the beer is currently out of production/distribution, strong stouts can sometimes age well, so if you are able to hunt down a bottle, this brew might still be drinkable today.
Fire and Blood Red Ale (released March 2014): The third GoT beer was an amber ale spiced with ancho chilies. The brew was re-released in October 2017 but is currently out of production/distribution.
Valar Morghulis Dubbel Ale (released October 2014): The fourth GoT beer was a Belgian style billed as being “delicately balanced with rich malty sweetness, caramel and just enough bitterness to balance out its malty backbone.” The brew was re-released with the October 2016 launch of Valar Dohaeris, but is currently out of production/distribution. However, once again, dubbels can sometimes age well, so an old bottle may still be enjoyable.
Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison Ale (released April 2015): The first GoT beer of 2015, this brew was mysteriously billed as “a Dark Saison ale, a hybrid style open to brewer’s imagination” that is “neither a pure saison nor your typical dark beer.” The beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution.
Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale (released April 2016): After a year wait, Brewery Ommegang returned with a sixth GoT beer that was a easier drinking Hoppy Wheat, a mix between a Belgain-style wheat (not unlike Blue Moon) and a hop-forward American ale. This beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution.
Valar Dohaeris Tripel Ale (released October 2016): Based on a traditional Belgian style, this seventh GoT beer is a copper-tinted, 9-percent ABV tripel “with a bright sweetness thanks to the Belgian candi sugar” that finishes “moderately dry and effervescent with just a hint of Belgian yeast character.” The beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution, but is likely still enjoyable today.
Bend the Knee Golden Ale (released May 2017): For its eight GoT brew, Ommegang opted for a huge 9-percent ABV Belgian-style beer brewed with pilsner malt and flaked oats and hopped with Saaz, Bravo, and Styrian Golding hops. The beer was never re-released and is currently out of production/distribution.
