Brewery Ommegang Is Transforming This Prison Into Westeros for a ‘Game of Thrones’ Party
It’s time to channel your inner Tyrion for a Game of Thrones party inside a prison.Ommegang Brewery, best known for its highly anticipated Game of Thrones-themed beer series, announced that it will be having a special release party for its new Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale inside the historic Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia.
On Thursday, April 14, the Penitentiary, which used to house notorious criminals but is now open to the public for tours, will be transformed into the Seven Kingdoms from George RR Martin’s hit fantasy book and TV series. Guests will be able to drink and be merry with a selection of Ommegang beers and feast on cheese and meat platters, live fire-spinning performances, and a DJ.
You’ll also be able to claim your rightful place on the Iron Throne (at least for a quick photo opportunity). Sadly, the event was sold out almost immediately, so unless you can summon your dragons to crash the party, you’re out of luck.
But you can still grab a bottle (or case) of the limited-edition Seven Kingdoms Hoppy Wheat Ale, described by Ommegang brewers as “a marriage of a traditional Belgian-style wheat and a hop-forward American ale.”
