Final ‘Game of Thrones’ Inspired Beer Launches This Fall
Brewery Ommegang and HBO have once again teamed up to create the 15th and final Game of Thrones inspired beer. Called My Watch Has Ended, the imperial brown ale is brewed with maple syrup and fenugreek and will be available this fall.
My Watch Has Ended is brewed with two-row base malt, specialty grains such as oat flakes and chocolate malt, plus maple syrup and fenugreek, an herb with a maple-like aroma and flavor. Hopped with Hallertau Magnum and Styrian Golding varietals and fermented with an English ale yeast, with aromas of sweet maple and caramelized sugar, the beer pours a rich mahogany. Notes of cocoa and toffee and a smooth, velvety mouthfeel finish dry, with gently smoldering roast. My Watch Has Ended is 8% ABV.
“We’ve brewed an amazing array of different beers over the course of this partnership, and it’s been our pleasure to be part of this phenomonal story,” said Brewery Ommegang president Doug Campbell. “A tribute to fans everywhere, My Watch Has Ended is a fitting end to the series, and a reflection of the mindset of fans now that this epic story has come to a close. We hope it’s something they’ll enjoy with friends as they reminisce about their favorite episodes and characters.”
“Fifteen beers and six years later, we’ve now arrived at our aptly named final beer, My Watch Has Ended,” said Jeff Peters, HBO’s VP of Licensing & Retail. “What an incredible collaboration this partnership with Brewery Ommegang has been, and we couldn’t be prouder of this final product. Cheers!”
The beer will be available on draft and in 750 ml bottles this fall just in time for the holidays. It will release alongside the Collector’s Edition pack which will feature three previously released beers: Take the Black Stout, Fire and Blood Red Ale, and Winter is Here Double Wit and includes a commemorative glass.
