OmNom created and approved…

Plan B Burger Bar has been killing it lately with great events and dinners…much like George R.R. Martin, writer of Game of Thrones.  While we promise that Martin has no part in who lives and who dies at a special GoT dinner at Plan B Milford, his handiwork will be the focus of the night.  That’s because on June 17 from 6-9 you can partake in The Feast, featuring GoT brews from Ommegang, six courses of food, and a special screening of the finale.  Tickets are $60 and you can buy them here.

For more info, check out the beer and food menu:

Take the Black Stout Game of Thrones Beer Release Party at Beer Garden in Stamford

25 Sep

Take the Black Stout is coming…

Back in March we told you about the launch of the Iron Throne Blonde Ale from Brewery Ommegang, made just for Game of Thrones.  We also provided a list of liquor stores around Fairfield County that had those rare brews.  Well, Ommegang has produced another beer that will undoubtedly be snatched up like mad.  But, look, there’s some good news:  they have doubled production!  The beer that will come out on October 1 in Connecticut is Take the Black Stout.  According to Ommegang, here’s the story behind this beer:

Inspired by the brotherhood of the Night’s Watch, Take the Black Stout was made to be deep, dark and complex like those who have sworn the oath to defend Westeros against threats from the north. The label depicts the Weirwood tree where Jon Snow recited the oath before joining the Night’s Watch.

Yes, this is one of the hottest items on store shelves now.  Actually, it only just hit the shelves yesterday!  Hotter than any Elmo doll, video game, or Cabbage Patch Kid.  We’re talking custom-made brews from Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY.  This just happens to be one of our favorite breweries and we even were lucky enough to visit their digs and take a tour.  Well, and we also might have bought a wickedly amazing growler and filled that growler with some golden goodness.  But, let’s get back to these custom beers.  Ommegang has created a series of beer for HBO’s hit show, Game of Thrones which has its Season 3 premiere on March 31.

The first beer in the series is Iron Throne Blonde Ale.  Here is how Ommegang describes it on their site:

Iron Throne is a blonde ale at 6.5% ABV and brewed with a robust amount of pils, honey malt, aroma malts and red wheat. Gentle hopping includes Styrian Golding and Hallertau Spalter Select, appropriately noble hops. Spiced with grains of paradise and lemon peel. Hue is a slightly hazy golden amber. Head is full and fluffy. Finish is crisp, backed by a touch of spice and hops. Aroma is a bit grassy with a hint of lemon fruitiness from the lemon peel. Taste is lightly malty, rounded out by honey malt sweetness.  Available in limited quantities in 750ml bottles and 1/6 BBL kegs starting in late March 2013.

Sounds good, right?  But, did you catch that last sentence?  Limited quantities?  Oh man.  Better think fast!  You don’t want to be that one lame Game of Thrones fan who doesn’t have any beer for the season premiere.  Really, think how uncool you’d be!  So, sheath your sword, take off your armor, and head to these Fairfield County stores to get your Iron Throne Blonde Ale while it lasts:
