Son of Thunder: Pardon me, beer snobs, but could you recommend something that would go well with Frey pie?


I think the brew you're looking for is Rat Cook Ale, aged in the cellars of the historic Manderly Brewery, based on a long-lost recipe said to have originated in the icy bowels of the Nightfort.

Drogo was like the only Dothraki who wasn't a rapist I mean sure he died a fool's death but give credit where credit is due.

Sooooo, you missed his vow in the first season to go to the 7 kingdoms and rape their women?

/nerd fight!

I would try the Stark Stout, but I hear it doesn't keep it's head very long.

You brought evidence from a television series based on a book series to a nerd fight instead of only referring to the books. Isn't that like bringing a knife to a gun fight?

I'm guessing the pale mare ale won't go over so well. The Tyrion Imp. IPA would work though.

Fair point - I guess it's because I was rewatching season one last night (to get my wife hooked) and this was in episode 7. I'll find the book quote to post, but yes Drogo was in fact just like every other Dothraki and raped and pillaged etc.

Yeah sure. I agree I'm just annoyed with how the HBO series portrayed him on their wedding night. He was the only man who was ever good to Daenerys and her going a little insane after his death made a lot more sense in the books than on the television series where they made him a raging asshole until they relented with the flashback in her dreams. I'm guessing they got a lot of complaints about their treatment of his character and backpedaled.

I'm not a purist either I don't mind them making changes to the details of the story but they should at least be somewhat consistent with the overall story.

From my experience, beers that are thematic to pop culture, or just plainmarketing tie ins tend to suck.

That change bothered me a lot too. That said, Drogo almost certainly raped plenty of women before meeting Daenerys.

Oh, and my vote is for "The Pilsner that Was Promised"

litespeed74: Mmmm...insest IPA.

You can really taste the love.


And the yeast.

If I may expond on previous statement. Thereb is not much incentive to make the stuff.... good. All you gotta do is rebrand some existing stuff, no more effor then changing the labels in the bottling machine.

The stuff has a built in audience after all, and, it will sell, sell well for a short amount of time. The people buying it will be the fanbois, who may or may not drink it, but will most certainly put it up on the shelf next to action figures bearing the same name.
They expect a good deal of the product will never be consumed, another good amount of folks actually drinking it, because of press releases like this and the name recognition. They'll go.. well, yeah, that was a thing, and move on.
Meenwhile, the brewery has made a little cash withb little effort, and the productions people have kept the "brands" name out there between seasons.

Practical_Draconian: Being insane and dealing with fire-breathing dragons and barbarians, Targaryen's brew better be high-alcohol content.


It could be their version of Delirium Tremens

And the Dothraki Dark could just be Budwieser with food coloring since I b'lieve Bud is already 80% horse piss by volume anyway
