Rich and complex, this tour de force is a glorious blend of elegant Belgian-style quadruple ale and authentic Belgian kriek, its malty depth and gentle sweetness enhanced by sparkling carbonation and a serendipitous touch of cherry.

Score: 3.80
The brew that opened our doors in 1997, Abbey Ale brought Trappist-style brewing to America. This full-bodied dubbel pours a deep burgundy with a fluffy head and enchanting aromas. Rich, fruity flavors and hints of honey, caramel and toffee linger before giving way to a long, dry finish. Brewed with Belgian specialty malts and a variety of spices, it pairs well with roasted meats, pates and terrines, and soft cheeses. Life, like this beer, is rife with complexity. We choose to celebrate it.
Rosetta

Score: 3.85
The time-honored Belgian tradition of aging and blending fruit beers is lovingly expressed in this lively creation, named for legendary brewmaster Rosa Merckx of Liefmans, our sister blendery in Belgium where this beer is crafted. A charming combination of Oud Bruin, a tart Flemish brown ale, and Cuvee Brut, a cheerful cherry beer, Rosetta offers elegance, depth, complexity and an intriguing interplay of tartness and sweetness.
Game of Thrones: Take The Black Stout
Style: Stout - Foreign / Export
ABV: 7.0%
# Ratings: 49,414
Score: 3.69
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. Take the Black Stout has a deep black, almost opaque, hue with a full tan head. Deep aromas of dark chocolate, caramel malt and earthy hops, with light roastiness and a touch of fruitiness. Rich flavors of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Clean hop bitterness converges with a slight woody character and spiciness. The finish offers a rich malt sweetness giving way to spicy earthiness. Malt: Robust amount of Specialty Malt, Chocolate Malt, Midnight Wheat and Roasted Barley Hops: Northern Brewer, Columbus. Spices: Licorice Root, Star Anise Pair the somber faces of disgraced nobles with roasted and barbequed chicken, oysters and strong cheeses such as Roquefort, Gorgonzola and blue cheese. Pairs great with desserts including cheesecake, chocolate, creme brulee and vanilla ice cream.
Game of Thrones: Fire And Blood
Style: Red Ale - American Amber / Red
ABV: 6.8%
# Ratings: 40,116
Score: 3.56
Named after the motto of House Targaryen, Fire and Blood is inspired by Daenerys Targaryen and her three dragons, Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion. To celebrate the rebirth of dragons, three different labels were created by the Game of Thrones visual effects specialists, each depicting one of Daenerys' feared dragons. Randomly distributed amongst the cases, each case will contain all three bottles. Fire and Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt and slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops and rye. Underlying flavors of raisin and prune from the ancho chilies give way to a balanced malty and spicy finish. Malt: Pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt Hops: CTZ, Styrian Golding, German Tettnang Spices: Ancho Chilies Pair with pastrami, jerk chicken, pulled pork, Mexican cuisine (such as burritos), and sharp cheddar and pepper jack cheeses.
Pale Sour Ale
Style: Sour - Other
ABV: 6.9%
IBUs: 9
# Ratings: 34,612
Score: 3.82
Gently tart, delicately sweet and completely refreshing, this incomparable ale is crafted exclusively for Ommegang by Liefmans, our sister blendery in Belgium. Pale Sour begins with a mixed-culture fermentation in open copper vats, followed by months of aging in stainless steel. Master blenders regularly mix new batches with older ones to achieve the ideal combination of flavors and the perfect balance of sweet and sour. Pouring a bright gold with a brilliant white head, Pale Sour drinks like a fine white wine.
Fruition
Style: Witbier
ABV: 5.3%
# Ratings: 19,323
Score: 3.56
Fruition starts with our award-winning witbier base and then takes a turn for the tropical during fermentation. Mango, kiwi, and passion fruit juices are added during fermentation, and then the beer is dry-hopped with citra and cascade. The resulting beer is refreshing, and incredibly crushable.

Game of Thrones: Winter Is Here
Style: Witbier
ABV: 8.3%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 2.75
Winter Is Here is a Belgian-style double white ale. Fittingly for a double white (walker) ale, the label is graced by the ominous visage of the Night King, who is expected to arrive as forcefully in Season 7 as this beer's 8.3% ABV will arrive in your stomach. Winter is Here is brewed with pilsner malt, white wheat malt, and soft red wheat flakes, hopped with Saaz hops, and spiced with white pepper, sea salt, coriander and sweet orange peel. Brewery Ommegang’s house yeast is used in primary and secondary fermentation. This double white ale pours a hazy pale straw color with a stark white head. Aromas of banana, clove, and pronounced peppery phenols lead, and the flavor is slightly sweet malt, subtly balanced by hints of sea salt. Despite a full mouthfeel and healthy ABV, it still manages to drink quite lightly. The finish gradually builds in a warming crescendo of peppery spice.
Hennepin Farmhouse Saison

ABV: 7.7%

# Ratings: 121,027
Score: 3.78
Inspired by the traditional rustic brews of Belgium, our iconic American farmhouse saison is charmingly complex but eminently drinkable. Artfully spiced with coriander, ginger, orange peel and grains of paradise, its champagne-like effervescence leads to a crisp, dry finish, delighting discerning drinkers everywhere. While delicious on its own, Hennepin pairs remarkably well with a variety of foods, complementing shellfish, barbecue, cheeses, charcuterie and a wide range of spicy fare.
Rare Vos

# Ratings: 88,186
Score: 3.75
Our take on the smooth, easy drinking ambers poured in cafés across Belgium, Rare Vos (Strange Fox) takes its name from a tavern near Brussels known for cycling contests, pigeon races and outstanding ales. Pouring a brilliant copper with a creamy white head, this bright, beguiling beer is sensational to session, and pairs wonderfully with mussels, frites and other pub fare. Because at the end of the day, it’s good to enjoy the end of the day.
Witte

This traditional Belgian-style white ale refreshes the body and illuminates the spirit. Brewed with malted and unmalted wheat and seasoned with coriander and sweet orange peel, Witte pours hazy, smooth and flavorful, with aromas of citrus and clove. Crisp and refreshing on its own, it shines brightly alongside lighter fare like salads and appetizers, and serves as a perfect complement to barbecue and spicy dishes. Enjoy a taste of the sun. Santé!
Game of Thrones: Three-Eyed Raven
Style: Farmhouse Ale - Saison
ABV: 7.2%
IBUs: 80
# Ratings: 49,761
Score: 3.72
Push through the thick brambles and present yourself to the Three-Eyed Raven. Abiding in the shadows of the Three-Eyed Raven lies this deceptive Dark Saison. The ominous Three-Eyed Raven inspired us to brew a Dark Saison ale, a hybrid style open to brewer’s imagination. In the end it is neither a pure saison nor your typical dark beer, but instead a delectable blend that both deceives and thrills the senses. Three-Eyed Raven harbors a deep dark brown, almost jet-black color with a light tan head. Yeast forward aromas are packed with peppery phenolics and fruity esters. Despite what you might expect from a dark hued beer, the flavor brings to mind a traditional saison: a light, malty body with a hint of sweetness, and roast accentuated by herbal and spicy hops, yet underpinned by pleasant yeastiness. Finish is crisp, with lingering notes of herbal hops and Belgian yeast. Malt: Our carefully crafted mixture of specialty malts. Sugar: Dark Candi Hops: Hallertau Spalt Select, Tettenang and Bravo Spices: None Pair with roasted chicken and pork, barbeque and other spicy dishes, grilled vegetables, goat cheese and smoked gouda.
Game of Thrones: Valar Morghulis
Style: Belgian Dubbel
ABV: 8.0%
# Ratings: 46,298
Score: 3.75
In the world of Westeros, Valar Morghulis means “all men must die.” Fans of the hit HBO show chose the foreboding phrase as the name of the newest beer in the Game of Thrones® collaboration between HBO and Brewery Ommegang. As part of a Facebook poll, fan voting determined the style and name of the next beer. An Abbey Dubbel was selected and it is perfectly represented by the “two- headed” coin given to Arya Stark by Jaqen H’ghar, one of the “Faceless Men of Braavos” – legendary assassins with the ability to change their appearances at will. Valar Morghulis possesses a deep chestnut brown color with a persistent and creamy tan head. Rich aromas of caramel, toffee, ripe fruits and burnt sugar, with a hint of cloves. The taste is delicately balanced with rich malty sweetness, caramel and just enough bitterness to balance out its malty backbone. A surprisingly dry finish is light on the tongue, which belies the initial aroma. Malt: Our carefully crafted mixture of specialty malts. Sugar: Dark Candi Hops: Apollo, Hallertau Spalt Spices: None Pair with savory dishes, roasted lamb or beef, marinated roasts and grilled venison. Strong cheeses such as Stilton, Gorgonzola and smoked cheddar will match well against the malty body.

We are fortunate to brew beer in a truly peaceful place. Occasionally, on this old hop farm, tucked into a secluded valley near the source of the Susquehanna, one can find real tranquility, when the noise and cares of the world seem to fall away. Nirvana IPA is made for those moments. Seven different hop varietals deliver an exalted array of piney aromas and juicy flavors, balanced by a gentle snap of bitterness on the long, dry finish. May each sip offer a window to a better state of mind.

This delectable Belgian blonde ale is a co-creation of two famed farmstead breweries: Brewery Ommegang and Brasserie d’Achouffe. It employs five fine malts, two noble hops, and both of the distinctive Chouffe and Ommegang yeasts. You’ll enjoy the smooth drinkability, fruity aromas and flavors, and warming finish.
Fleur de Houblon (Summer Ale)
Style: Pale Ale - Belgian
ABV: 6.8%

Nothing is more evocative of summer than flowers, and the favorite flowers of brewers are hops, Fleur de Houblon Ale (Hop Flower Ale) is a rich gold color, with distinct floral hops in the aroma that follow through in the taste. The body and flavor are clean and dry, with pleasing complexity and spicy notes from our unique Ommegang house yeast.
Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms
Style: IPA - Belgian
ABV: 6.9%
# Ratings: 33,685
Score: 3.74
Seven Hells! Seven Kingdoms is a marriage of a traditional Belgian-style wheat and a hop-forward American ale – but unlike so many of the marriages on the show, the resulting hoppy wheat is pleasant, playful and inspired. Seven Kingdoms harmoniously weds citrusy and herbal American hops, with wheaty maltiness and moderate bitterness. Seven Kingdoms pours a hazy pale yellow with a thick cap of pure white foam. Aromas of citrus and fruit are underpinned with notes of banana, ripe fruit, and spicy phenols from the yeast. The hop flavor is full and round with notes of tart orange and lemon, complemented by substantial wheat maltiness. A mildly bitter finish gives way to slight lingering hop notes. Malt: Pilsner, wheat, and oats Hops: Bravo, Centennial, Citra, Cascade, and Columbus Spices: None Pair with fish dishes, smoked salmon, baked trout, or fish & chips. Light fresh cheeses such as goat cheese, feta or queso fresco will complement the citrus hop character and light body of the beer, as well.

“No one enjoys their job more than I do -- producing and developing new brews to delight lovers of fine beer, add to that the opportunity to collaborate on a beer based on the cultural phenomenon of Game of Thrones and exploring ways to make the beer truly reflect aspects from the show. It made us approach development in a completely new way and I think the first edition Iron Throne reveals that. With a Lannister currently on the throne, it made sense to do a delicate, but piercing Golden Blonde Ale with Noble hops. Iron Throne is certainly fair in color and soft in appearance, yet it still possesses a complexity and bite to be on guard for.” -Phil Leinhart, Brewmaster at Brewery Ommegang Iron Throne has a slightly hazy golden amber hue. The head is full and fluffy. The finish is crisp, backed by a touch of spice and hops. The aroma is a bit grassy with a hint of lemon fruitiness from the lemon peel. The taste is lightly malty, rounded by honey malt sweetness. Malt: Pils, Honey Malt, Aroma malt, Red wheat. Hops: Styrain Golding, Hallertau Spalter Select. Spices: Lemon peel, Grains of Paradise.
Scythe & Sickle
Style: Bière de Garde
ABV: 5.8%
# Ratings: 25,754
Score: 3.65
Scythe and Sickle is Ommegang’s foray into honoring the harvest season. Using barley, oats, wheat, and rye, we’ve brought the mood of fall to life with vibrant and flavorful passion. Farming is about precision, timing and care. At Ommegang we place the same emphasis a farmer has for his crops into the creation of our beers. Scythe and Sickle is a testament to the craft and care of farming, from which our farmstead-brewed beers benefit greatly. Brewed with balance in mind, Scythe & Sickle reveals a smooth and creamy mouthfeel with light toastiness and gentle sweetness. Bright amber in color from the mixed malts, the beer is balanced with delicate hopping to counter rather than overpower the malt profile.

Glimmerglass - the name given to our lake by James Fenimore Cooper - us a beautiful body. Nestled between gentle mountains, it reflects any object held up to it, just as it reflects our joy at the arrival of each spring. To help celebrate, our new spring saison offers a perfect balance if maltiness and hops, with a touch of yeasty fruitiness and a whiff of pepper.

After an exciting season that saw the Starks reclaim the North and Cersei take the Iron Throne as the first queen of Westeros, Brewery Ommegang and HBO Global Licensing are introducing a new beer and bringing back a previous brew to steady the nerves of fans as they anxiously endure the show’s off-season break. Valar Dohaeris Tripel Ale is the latest beer in the series and pays homage to Arya’s season-long struggles within and around the House of Black and White. Valar Dohaeris Tripel Ale is, much like a “faceless man,” not what it first appears to be; it shares the complexity of its sister-brew, Valar Morghulis Dubbel, and a strength masked and belied by its lighter color. Valar Dohaeris pours a beautiful copper-tinted hue with a full, fluffy white head. Sweet grain and honey are prevalent in the aroma. The flavor opens with a bright sweetness thanks to the Belgian candi sugar used in brewing. The finish is moderately dry and effervescent with just a hint of Belgian yeast character. Malt: Pils, Wheat, Oats, Flaked Barley Hops: Noble Varieties Pairs with rich pasta dishes like fettuccine alfredo and penne alla vodka. Complements roasted and cured meats nicely as well as moderately sharp cheeses. A perfect accompaniment for charcuterie.

Score: 3.95
King in the north - a beer for Jon - is an imperial stout aged for over six months in bourbon barrels. The beer is black as pitch, with aromas of bourbon and chocolate. A fitting companion for a long dark night. "King In The North" is our final expression of what a court brewer would offer a noble lord or lady: perfect balance and pure drinking pleasure. King in the North pours jet black with a thick tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate blend with those of oak, bourbon, and vanilla. The flavor is rich and full with notes of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and roasted malt up front followed by smooth bourbon and a hint of oak. The finish is thick and chewy with oatmeal creaminess, and pleasant lingering roast. King in the North pairs well with funky aged cheeses, rich dark meats and decadent desserts. It also makes a great dessert on its own.

# Ratings: 21,010
Score: 3.84
Brewed in the authentic style of Belgian winter, or noel beer, is dark, strong, malty and assertively spiced. It is not a lightweight beer, and is best sipped before a roaring fire, or on a sleigh ride over the hills to Grandma’s house. (Let someone else drive.) It would also be a tasty accompaniment to dark roasts and wild game.  Even with its strong ABV, this beer is well-balanced and not at all hot or fiery. The dark malts give it lush, malty flavors and aromas, strongly complemented by the five spices, including coriander, cumin, mace, cardamom and grains of paradise. Hopping is modest, as befits such a beer.

Score: 3.72
Brewed and blended for a leader who takes what is hers with fire and blood, Mother of Dragons is a blend of a smoked porter and a Belgian kriek, representing the smoke and fire that Daenerys has unleashed on her opponents. The beer will be available throughout Ommegang’s distribution network on September 28 both on draft and in 750ml bottles and the suggested retail price for a bottle is $12.99. “Mother of Dragons represents in beer one of our favorite characters from Game of Thrones. Daenerys’s ascent from obscurity has been one of the most inspiring storylines of the show, and we’re thrilled to release a blend that embodies the character traits that have underpinned that rise,” said Doug Campbell, Brewery Ommegang president. Mother of Dragons pours a deep ruby-tinted mahogany with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate covered cherries intertwine with subtle smoke and roasted malt. The flavor is rich with tart cherry up front leading to a center palate of semi-sweet chocolate then resolving to subtle smoke and mild sweetness. The mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy and full, and the finish is semi-dry with lingering notes of smoke and cherry sweetness. Mother of Dragons is 6.5% ABV and pairs well with smoked gouda and charcuterie, braised meats, and rich desserts like flourless chocolate cake and cherry cheese cake.

When fans last gripped their glasses at the end of Game of Thrones' sixth season, the great houses of Westeros were on the brink of an epic conflict. Cersei had ascended to the Iron Throne as the first queen of Westeros, Jon Snow and Sansa Stark had just reclaimed the North, and Daenerys Targaryen had set sail for the Seven Kingdoms. To commemorate the coming mêlée in the Emmy® Award-winning show’s epic seventh season, Brewery Ommegang and HBO Global Licensing are excited to announce a new beer in their collaborative series: Bend the Knee Golden Ale. Paying homage to the struggle for control of the Seven Kingdoms, Bend the Knee will be available on draft and in a series of three collectible 750ml bottles, all finished in matte black and adorned with one of the three Great House sigils: Stark, Targaryen, or Lannister. Bend the Knee pours a golden hue with a large, frothy head. Both the aroma and flavor mix maltiness and citrus from the hops, while Ommegang’s signature house yeast produces prominent fruitiness. Wildflower honey added during fermentation provides light sweetness to the beer, which finishes dry and with firm hop bitterness. Malt: Pils malt and flaked oats Hops: Saaz, Bravo, and Styrian Golding Fit for any feast table, Bend the Knee’s clean and balanced flavor and effervescent carbonation make it a fine pairing for a variety of foods including seafood and shellfish, roasted or grilled chicken, grilled steaks, and aged Swiss-style cheeses.
