According to the release, the red ale is brewed with pilsner, spelt, rye, and other specialty malts. It’s hopped with Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops and spiced with ancho chilies. Aromas include ripe fruit, raisins, slight spice and malt, with a slight floral, spicy hop character.
“Once again, we really worked hard to ensure the beer tied nicely into the themes of the show,” Brewery Ommegang Brewmaster Phil Leinhart said in the release. “Obviously the use of ancho chilies pays homage to the dragons, but the use of rye and Spelt wheat links back to the Dothraki people that Daenerys is leading — they are nomads of the plains and these are the grains that would be well at home there.”
The beer is expected to retail for $8.50 per bottle. A specific release date has not yet been announced.
