These new Hobbit beers are precious
As the four Game of Thrones brews have proven, fantasy beers are a pretty hot market nowadays. And while the world still waits for a Beastmaster Brown, the folks at BevLink and Fish Brewing have jumped on the Middle Earth train with a trio of beers commemorating The Hobbit.
Each beer is tied to one of the movies, so first up is Gollum's Precious Pils for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. According to the release, it's a 9.5% ABV imperial pils that's "as tough and determined as Gollum himself" and is liable to make you talk like him after a few pints. Then there's Smaug's Stout, another 9.5% ABVer styled after a Russian Imperial Stout and brewed in tribute to The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. And for the grand finale, they've got Bolg's Belgium Tripel Ale for the upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. The 8% ale is named after the fearsome orc chieftain, though it surprisingly doesn't pay tribute to the movie by being a 900-minute IPA.
