Last month, the folks at Ommegang announced plans for future collaborations with HBO for its hit series “Game of Thrones.” Brewmaster Phil Leinhart hinted at the second brew saying that it was “due out later this year.” With the season finale said and done, along with a number of fan fave characters, Ommegang announced the Take the Black yesterday.
The black stout is an obvious homage to the Night’s Watch. The brewery was kind enough to send along this bottle dummy image showcasing the sacred Weirwood tree where the Night’s Watch oath is taken. The design was created specifically for the bottle by a52, the studio that created the title design for the show’s opening credits.
And while it’s still 100-plus degrees out here in the desert, winter will come soon enough, hopefully with this dandy in tow.
