Ommegange Game of Thrones Beer: Fire and Blood Red Ale

Ommegang is continuing it's brewing partnership with HBO and releasing the next beer in it's Game of Thrones (GoT) series:

Fire and Blood Red Ale


No... It's not named after this...
"It's a nice day for a Red Wedding"

It's named after the motto of House Targaryen, Fire and Blood, and is inspired by Daenerys Targaryen:



 and her three dragons:
Drogon

Rhaegal

Viserion

This Belgian-Style Red ale has been brewed with a rich malt character in the front and rounded out with a small amount of spice notes from Ancho Chilies and a lasting bitterness due to assertive hopping.  The color is a beautiful rusty orange and looks great in our Game of Thrones specialty glasswear.  But to be fair, I think all GoT beer should be served in earthen mugs.

Huzzah!

Cask this weekend!

Hello all!

We will be running our cask engine this weekend with an awesome selection from Machine House...

English-style IPA freshly dry-hopped with Australian Galaxy hops.  This hop variety is known for having a big tropical fruit note (passionfruit and citrus) and has a big presence on the nose.  Galaxy is perfect for dry-hopping and we are pleased to have this one on just for us!  Thanks Machine House!  

Come down and check it out this Friday, Saturday and Sunday!  Pair it with one of our awesome baskets of fish and chips (one of my favorite menu items) and save a buck off the price!   See you then!
