Brewery Ommegang and HBO announce launch of Game of Thrones®-inspired Royal Reserve Collection this spring

As Game of Thrones approaches its final season, Brewery Ommegang and
HBO Global Licensing are excited to announce the launch of the Royal Reserve Collection,
a collectible series of four special, limited release beers, each
designed and brewed as an homage to one of four epic figures in the
battle for the Seven Kingdoms. Packaged as a series, with simple,
elegant iconography and sophisticated design representative of select
Westerosi houses, each beer will be brewed and blended with ingredients
selected to match the character and temperament of the chosen hero,
designed and brewed as Brewery Ommegang’s interpretation of what a royal
brewer might brew for his or her noble master.

The first beer in the series is Hand of the Queen, a beer brewed for Tyrion Lannister. As one who knows a great many things, Tyrion knows and loves wine above all else, so Hand of the Queen
is a big, bold barleywine, a beer fit for those who seek knowledge and
truth, both great and small. Available throughout Ommegang’s
distribution network beginning in April, Hand of the Queen will be offered both on draft and in 750ml bottles. The suggested retail price for a bottle is $12.99.

“While technically not royalty at all, Tyrion certainly qualifies as a
nobleman in our esteem,” says Doug Campbell, President of Brewery
Ommegang. “We’ve wanted to brew for Tyrion for six seasons, and we
believe his time has come. Knowing his preferences, our beer for Tyrion
could only be a barleywine.”

“Ommegang’s collection of Game of Thrones beers has been an
enduring hit with our fans, so we’re excited to offer them even more
opportunities to pay tribute to their favorite characters next year by
releasing four new and special releases,” says Jeff Peters, Vice
President of Global Licensing at HBO. “And, of course, who better to
receive our first tribute than Tyrion, the man who so famously drinks
and knows things.”

Brewed with a complex blend of specialty malts and carefully-selected old-world hops, Hand of the Queen
is a rich, full-bodied version of a classic barleywine and comes in at
10.7% ABV. Malt forward and multifaceted, the beer balances the intense
flavors of brandy-soaked raisins and dark fruit with the lighter notes
of apricot. Hints of molasses and toffee are evident before a finish
characterized by the classic yet distinctive barleywine alcoholic heat. Hand of the Queen,
an old-world example of the style, attempts to balance these strong yet
unruly opposing forces, much like the way Tyrion maintains the balance
of power among his influential contemporaries in Westeros.

The Royal Reserve Collection will feature four brand new beers in the brewery’s Game of Thrones-inspired
series with HBO. All of the beers will be available on draft and in
750ml bottles and they’ll launch in April, July, October, and December
for 2018. Details and images of future beers will be announced
throughout the year.
