Ommegang’s Newest GAME OF THRONES Beer Will Make You Declare Your House Loyalty

Whether you swear loyalty to the Starks, or you serve the Lannisters of Casterly Rock, or even if you’ve been secretly hoping that a Targaryen will retake the Iron Throne, there is one thing that can unite all of the Seven Kingdoms: Ommegang Brewery’s Game of Thrones beer, and the release of their latest brew is a call all of their bannermen will want to answer. One that won’t even require us to break a sacred vow to our favorite houses.

Today Ommegang and HBO announced the eighth addition to their line of Game of Thrones brews, the 9.0% ABV Bend the Knee Golden Ale, which they say has an “extreme drinkability” despite it’s “relatively high alcohol content.” Brewed with “pils malt and flaked oats,” along with three types of hops, they say it has a “subtle noble and floral hop contribution” along with the “the delicate flavors of honey.”

While Bend the Knee will be released on draft in select locations, it will come in three matte black, collectible 750ml bottles, which will be adorned with either the sigil of House Stark, House Lannister, or House Targaryen. The beer is exactly the same in all three, so you can simply choose which house you want to align with: the carpetbaggers that burn people with dragons, the greedy and ruthless monsters of the westerlands, or the noble, proud, and morally upstanding Northmen. (Guess which one I’m going to buy!)

Ommegang says the beer will be released around Memorial Day weekend, just in time for summer (which will help pass the wait until the later-than-normal season premiere), with a suggested retail price of $10.99 per bottle.

So even though an army of the dead is marching on the Wall while all of Westeros heads towards a massive battle between its Great Houses, at least we’ll have a new beer to enjoy while everything goes to seven hells.
