Game of Thrones Beer at Pub on Passyunk East

The third season of medieval fantasy series Game of Thrones debuts March 31, but before the show itself is another (more important?) launch. Upstate NY’s Brewery Ommegang partnered with HBO to create a special themed beer called Iron Throne, and it’s just becoming available in Philadelphia this week. You can be sure to get a taste of it this Wednesday, March 20, at the Pub on Passyunk East.

At 7 PM, the P.O.P.E. will tap and begin selling pints of Iron Throne, which is a 6.5% ABV blonde ale. We were lucky enough to get our hands on a review bottle of the brew, and can testify that it’s worth a swordfight, or at least a short sparring session. Each sip is extremely well-balanced, rolling over the tongue with sweet, bitter and sour notes, in that order, with a refreshingly crisp finish.

Head down Passyunk to try it for yourself, and if you’re a fan of the series, stick around after a few pours for Johnny Goodtimes’ Game of Thrones Quizzo, kicking off at 10:15 PM (215-755-5125).
