Ommegang Game of Thrones Mother of Dragons joins the brewery’s Game of Thrones Series in late September.

As the world continues to wait on George RR Martin’s sixth book (for years now), as well as HBO’s 8th season of the live action show, Brewery Ommegang continues to deliver beers inspired by the series. This September is dedicated to the “Mother of Dragons” Daenerys Targaryen.

This release is a blend of a smoked porter and Belgian Kriek, meant to be a representation of smoke and fire, found in the wake of Daenerys as she fights for her place on the Iron Throne. Ommegang describes this release as having “a rich with tart cherry up front leading to a center palate of semi-sweet chocolate then resolving to subtle smoke and mild sweetness.”

“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.” – Doug Campbell, Brewery Ommegang president.

Ommegang Game of Thrones Mother of Dragons will be available in 750-milliliter bottles starting on September 28th.

Style: Smoked Porter/Kriek Blend (w/ Cherries)
Availability:750ml Bottles

Debut: 9/28/18

Southern Sky Brewing Company has announced they have closed their doors.

Georgia Tech graduate Jon Near founded the brewery three years ago in Kennesaw, Georgia. Sources close to Southern Sky state the brewery was at constant odds with their distributor, Empire Distributors, over product placement at events in the weeks leading up to this announcement.

Incidentally, Beer Street Journal could only find one mention of Southern Sky on the brewery’s website – a single link back to the brewery’s website. There is no mention of Southern Sky’s beer portfolio.

The brewery’s equipment is currently available for sale.

In late spring, Abbey of the Holy Goats, a Belgian inspired brewery based in Roswell, Georgia also closed their doors and offered their equipment on industry site ProBrewer.com.
