Here’s your first look at the official Game of Thrones beer. The beer was produced by HBO and Brewery Ommegang. The beer was “crafted to directly tie into themes and nuances of the medieval-like fantasy realm of Westeros and the surrounding kingdoms.”

Iron Throne will hit shelves in March at a cost of $8.50 per bottle.
