    Game of Thrones... ale is coming

    I usually frown on this kind of marketing tie-in, but being a big fan of this brewery (and the series) I have to say my attention has been captured.

    Fans of the HBO series “Game of Thrones” will have an opportunity to raise a flagon of ale in its honor next spring, when a new line of beers inspired by that series is introduced. HBO is set to announce that it will team up with Brewery Ommegang, a Belgian-style brewery in Cooperstown N.Y., to create beers based on themes and characters in the fantasy series adapted from the novels by George R. R. Martin.

    The first beer, Iron Throne Blonde Ale, will be inaugurated nationwide in late March, to coincide with the Season 3 premiere of “Game of Thrones,” which is scheduled for March 31. Three more beers are planned, with the second to be released next fall. The others will follow in subsequent seasons.

    If it tastes as good as the show, I'll drink it by the keg!
    Apply blizzards model to any other subscription service,you'd be outraged:
    Netflix adds no new movies for a year, you click a new movie, there's a $5 fee.
    You're in an accident, click your onstar button, but there's an addition $20 fee for them to help.
    You turn on your tv only to find all you get are the infomercial channels. Every other show is pay per view.
    See how dumb that model is?

    Since the most common drink in the series is wine and beer is rarely consumed I feel this is kind of fail.

    edit
    from a lore PoV ofcourse.

    From a sale PoV this is golden, the major audience are boys around 18-24 whom would most likely purchase easy drunk beer.

    Stella isn't awful. It's not the best but it's decent.

    Most certainly is better than Swedish beer...

    Was in belgium last summer and just about anything I drank was amazing. But I got told to avoid a few sorts by the locals.
