I plan on doing the same thing with a horn mug full of some Ommegang Game of Thrones Golden Ale brewed with honey. I kick off every season with a Game of Thrones Ommegang offering of some sort. I can't wait.
I'm very excited for the final season of Game Of Thrones, but I may wait until tomorrow to watch it. Two reasons... I have an early work day tomorrow (although knowing me, I'll be up late anyway) and I'm thinking the best way to break in the new Ser Jacopo, which should arrive tomorrow, will be with a great blend while watching. I may open of tin of McClelland Balkan Blue for that first smoke.
The show seems to have a good following, and I admit that I read the spoilers per episode, though Id rather ol Georgie write another book. Ive been a fan of this series since A Clash of Kings was written and am rather disenchanted by the whole thing.
George needs a good editor or three. The books are way too long, overtly-detailed, and some of the side stories are not that interesting. But that doesn’t stop me from reading his work and waiting for the new books. The man created something enthrallingly brilliant.
So far season 8 is looking good. I loved the doubling down on humor and the new opening.
