Brace yourselves, a new "Game of Thrones" inspired beer is coming. Ommegang brewery announced they are going to be releasing a new collaboration with the HBO series called Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale. The beer is expected to hit liquor stores in March 2016, a month before the highly-anticipated Season 6 April premiere.
The brewery, which is located in Cooperstown, N.Y., announced the new beer in a tweet that can be seen below. According to an Ommegang news release, Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale is described as "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."

Ommegang has previously released "Game of Thrones"-inspired beers. While Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale is the newest, the brewery has also released Iron Throne Blonde Ale, Take the Black Stout, Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison, Valar Morghulis, and Fire and Blood Red Ale.
Mike McManus, Innovation Manger at Ommegang, said the brewery enjoys being creative and coming up with different beers that play off the themes of the HBO drama. "This last season, the imaginativeness of the show was pretty astounding so we aimed for a beer that could hope to match that. A fusion of two wonderful styles was an idea that really excited our team,” he said in a release.
Fans of the show who are 21 years or older can purchase Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale in March 2016 for $9.99 a 750ml bottle. It will be available "throughout the realm" except for those who live in North Dakota, South Dakota, Mississippi, West Virginia, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming because the brewery is not distributed in those states.
Season 6 of the show is reportedly getting very close to finishing up filming and production. A new promo video was released a few weeks ago containing all of the jaw-dropping moments that have happened on "Game of Thrones" through the first five seasons. You can watch the teaser trailer below:
