HBO plans Game of Thrones themed beer. Just what we needed, another reason to drink

VicesDecember 17, 2012

If you’ve ever had the urge to drink along with Tyrion Lannister, you’re not alone; you have a problem, but you’re not alone. For drinkers everywhere, HBO has heard the call and paired with the New York, Belgian inspired brewery Ommegang to produce four beers based directly on the Game of Thrones themes, characters and nuances in what we dub the Drinking Game… of Thrones. Not a good joke? Fuck it. The first of the beers is slated to be on shelves just in time for the show’s premier on March 31. The price? $8.50 for a delicious bottle of mid-evil brew. The rest of the ale collection drops throughout the year and should give you yet another reason to go to the liquor store. In the meantime, we’ll suffice on our ice-cold bottle of Tru Blood. It’s on discount at the HBO store just in time for the holidays. Life doesn't get much better.
