Brewery Ommegang in nearby Cooperstown are continues to make a name for itself with the HBO series, "Game Of Thrones." The newest addition to the "Game Of Thrones Series of Beer's is Brewery Ommegang's "Valor Morghulis Dubbel".
"Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, New York has had major success with its series of Game of Thrones-inspired beer, and its back with its fourth installment: Valar Morghulis, meaning "all men must die" in the fictional language of Valyrian.
The latest Game of Thrones brew has a special twist though; it was picked by you. Brewery Ommegang and HBO posted a poll on the Game of Thrones Facebook page in December asking fans to pick which of four beer options (name and style) they'd want to see next. The Valar Morghullis phrase won out against Seven Kingdoms (Tripel), Hand of the King (Quad) and Khal (Quad).
The description for the winning brew highlights why the flavor resonates with the name: "Valar Morghulis is an Old Valyrian saying closely associated with the desire for vengeance. A Belgian-style Dubbel was chosen to capture the sweetness of revenge as well as the dangerous consequences that come with it."
Valar Morghulis will debut this fall on draft and in corked bottles (25.4 ounces) for about $8.50 each."
