Brewery Ommegang Announces Second Game of Thrones Beer
Cooperstown, NY-based Brewery Ommegang has just announced the follow up to Iron Throne Blonde Ale. The second beer in the HBO Game of Thrones-inspired series will be Take the Black Stout.
Brewed with caramel, chocolate and roasted barley malts; hopped with Northern Brewer hops; and spiced with licorice and star anise, the ale will be available nationwide this fall. Take the Black is inspired by the Night’s Watch (and the men who stand it), and features the sacred Weirwood tree on the label. Ommegang’s Mike McManus took that inspiration and turned it into the hearty and robust beer — something those standing at the wall would sip to fortify them on their watch.
