'Game of Thrones': Fans vote to choose the next beer
"Game of Thrones" is adding a fourth beer to its lineup of tie-in brews, but it's up to fans to choose which it is. Joining the ranks of Iron Throne Pale Ale, Take The Black Stout and Fire and Blood Red Ale will either be Valar Morghulis, Hand of the King, Seven Kingdoms or Khal.
HBO Global Licensing and Brewery Ommegang are inviting fans to choose which of the four beers gets their votes. Head over to the "Game of Thrones" Facebook page to make your choice. Voting will only be open for two days, so make sure to make that decision in early.
Find out more information about the four different beers below. The choice will be announced in the spring with a planned Fall 2014 release date.
1 - Valar Morghulis - Dubbel. Valar Morghulis is an Old Valyrian saying closely associated with the desire for vengeance. Thus, a Belgian-style Dubbel was chosen to capture the sweetness of revenge as well as the dangerous consequences that come with it.
2 - Hand of the King - Quadrupel. The responsibility of running a kingdom can only be matched by the complexity of a Belgian-style Quadrupel ale. Rich in flavor and dark in color, a Quad is the perfect companion for waging war, brokering peace, or enduring a Small Council meeting.
3 - Seven Kingdoms - Tripel. The golden Tripel is the universally agreed pinnacle of Belgian brewing achievement, making it the perfect beer to represent the legacy of the Seven Kingdoms. Though supremely drinkable, the Tripel comes with a spicy character that represents the sordid events of the history of Westeros.
4 - Khal - Quadrupel. The Dothraki people, like the Belgian-style Quad, are the strongest of the strong and Boldest of the bold. Quads rest atop the pyramid of Belgain beer because of their strength, so this style makes a fitting tribute to the men that rule the mighty Khalisars of Essos.
