The Purple Wedding might have put us off wine for a while, but this new "Game of Thrones"-inspired brew will have you raising your glass to the sweet taste of revenge. Introducing Valar Morghulis, the official beer of Westeros.
The drink, named after the Season 4 slogan "All Men Must Die" hails from Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, New York which has crafted hops for the past three seasons of the show. But unlike the Iron Throne Blonde Ale, Take the Black Stout and Fire and Blood Red Ale the brewery previously introduced, this beer is truly a drink of the people. It was chosen by fans who were encouraged to take a poll on HBO's Facebook page. Viewers picked Valar Morghulis over Seven Kingdoms (Tripel), Hand of the King (Quad) and Khal (Quad).
The beer, which has a fruity flavor and slightly bitter aftertaste, is described on the company's website as "a Belgian-style Dubbel chosen to capture the sweetness of revenge as well as the dangerous consequences that come with it."
We'll drink to that.
