The fifth Game of Thrones beer is a dark saison, just like winter
The Lannisters might drink the most wine out of anyone, but House You is going to have the opportunity to give them a run for their gold when Brewery Ommegang releases their fifth Game of Thrones beer: Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison Ale. This mysterious new brew will be released to coincide with the start of the show's fifth season next spring. This is gonna be a long winter.
As for the flavor of the beer itself, Ommegang says it's going to have a bit of a dual nature: "A saison isn’t typically dark, but it’s a style you can do a lot with in terms of flavor, so our brewers put a new spin on it and made it a dark ale. We really wanted to reflect that duality of the show theme in the beer itself," says Bill Wetmore, their marketing director.
When the beer finally arrives, be sure to get out there and pick it up quickly -- all the GoT beers so far have sold out within weeks of their release. So don't be a wallflower.
