Beer of the Week: Ommegang Iron Throne

  IMG_3700Brewery: Brewery Ommegang
Beer: Iron Throne
Style: Blonde Ale
ABV: 6.5%
Hops: Styrian Golding and Hallertau Spalter Select
Availability: Kegs and 750 ml bombers.
The word: My first helpin’ of Iron Throne, Ommegang’s tribute to HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones, came at the Mondo Gallery “Game of Thrones” exhibit here in Austin March 8. The fantastic event showcased GOT art from some of the most renowned poster artists in the world, and served as the world premiere of the beer. Legit.

While quintessentially Ommegang in style, Iron Throne transcends the familiar flavor profile of a blonde ale with a vibrant burst of spice courtesy of lemon peel and Grains of Paradise. Iron Throne is the first beer in a collaborative GOT series from Ommegang and HBO. So where can you find it? We’ve seen Iron Throne pop up at bottle shops in Austin like Sunrise Mini Mart and River City Market and on draft at bars like Easy Tiger. Get it while you can!
