The fierce and powerful Mother of Dragons, who takes what is hers with fire and blood, has been honored as the namesake behind the latest Games of Thrones beer from HBO and Brewery Ommegang. Inspired by Daenerys Targaryen, the new Mother of Dragons brew marks the third beer in the Royal Reserve Collection, a series of four limited edition beers for 2018, with each release designed and brewed in homage to four of the most epic characters engaged in the battle for the Seven Kingdoms.
Even the strongest leaders to taste this new porter blend will be compelled to bend the knee in honor of Khaleesi, the inspiration for this latest Ommegang and HBO collaboration. At 6.5% ABV, the Mother of Dragons is a blend of smoked porter and a Belgian kriek conjuring the essence of the smoke and fire breathed by her precious dragon children. Mother of Dragons is available now on Ommegang’s distribution network, both on draft and in 750ml bottles at a suggested retail price $12.99 per bottle.

“Mother of Dragons represents in beer one of our favorite characters from Game of Thrones. Daenerys’s ascent from obscurity has been one of the most inspiring storylines of the show, and we’re thrilled to release a blend that embodies the character traits that have underpinned that rise,” said Doug Campbell, Brewery Ommegang president.
Mother of Dragons pours a deep ruby-tinted mahogany with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate covered cherries intertwine with subtle smoke and roasted malt. The flavor is rich with tart cherry up front leading to a center palate of semi-sweet chocolate then resolving to subtle smoke and mild sweetness. The mouthfeel is luxuriously creamy and full, and the finish is semi-dry with lingering notes of smoke and cherry sweetness. Mother of Dragons is 6.5% ABV and pairs well with smoked gouda and charcuterie, braised meats, and rich desserts like flourless chocolate cake and cherry cheese cake.
The Royal Reserve Collection features four brand new beers in the brewery’s Game of Thrones-inspired series with HBO. All of the beers will be available on draft and in 750ml bottles. The series began in April with Hand of the Queen, a barley wine, and was followed in June by Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, a sour blonde blend. Following the release of Mother of Dragons, the final beer will be announced later this year.
