Brewery Ommegang and HBO Licensing & Retail have teamed up one last time to complete their epic Game of Thrones beer series. The 15th and final brew, appropriately named My Watch Has Ended, is the perfect way to celebrate the series ending. The new brew will be available this fall.
Brewery Ommegang president Doug Campbell said:
[row]”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 phenomenal story. 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.”[/row]
My Watch Has Ended has an ABV of 8% and is said to pair well with a grilled steak dinner. The beer is described as being “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.”
Jeff Peters, VP of Licensing & Retail said:
[row]“Fifteen beers and six years later, we’ve now arrived at our aptly named final beer, My Watch Has Ended. What an incredible collaboration this partnership with Brewery Ommegang has been, and we couldn’t be prouder of this final product. Cheers!”[/row]
My Watch Has Ended beer will be released this fall on draft and in 750ml bottles which retail for around $11.99 per bottle. You can find out more on the Brewery Ommegang website. The beer will launch just in time for the holidays alongside the Collector’s Edition pack, featuring three previously released beers: Take the Black Stout, Fire and Blood Red Ale, and Winter is Here Double Wit, plus a commemorative glass.
