    Hi Mark,
    Thanks for reaching out to us. We are as excited as you are!
    Iron Throne Blonde Ale will be available on draft and in 750ml bottles (with really beautiful label art!) and will be offered in Texas in time for the season premier on March 31st. We’ll have more information on Facebook, Twitter and on our website later today and as we get closer to the release date.

    I don't see why we wouldn't... We get all their other stuff.

    HBO can pay the $75 label approval.

    I still like the idea of a beer named after Ned with poor head retention.

    Please don't let Ommegang stoop to the level of a Targueryn Fire Beer made with hot chiles. :)

    Which stores are going to be selling this for the "iron price?" Also, is that worth more than the 5% discount for paying in cash at Spec's?

    (sorry, I had to)

    I understand Lannisters will be able to get this beer on credit.

    I'm not an expert on Belgian blonde ales, but I thought it was delicious. Very smooth and drinkable.

    Almost bought 1 the other day, when I saw it at Costco. Yeah, seriously. Someone's been paying attention over there

    At $7.99... this may be the cheapest C&C beer I've ever seen.

    Well I feel like a genius. Was at the Banner Emporium picking up extras for a trade when I saw Iron Throne and grabbed it. Didn't realize $11.99 was so out of whack. I figured the mark-up was only a couple of dollars.

    I haven't seen it for $7.99 and $11.99 is not a terrible price for it.
  17. kmello69

    kmello69 Advocate (505) Texas Nov 27, 2011

    $8 for it at Costco in N. Austin (you don't need to be a member to shop their liquor stores) and $8 at Specs in RR (but they're out now). $11.99 is a 50% markup

    Shut up. I'm trying to justify my terrible purchase.
  19. kmello69

    kmello69 Advocate (505) Texas Nov 27, 2011

    Oh, yeah, no, good purchase. ;)

    Trust me, I have a ton of crap I've overpaid for just for the convenience of not having to go somewhere else to look for it.
