Our latest Game of Thrones-inspired beer, Winter is Here, has worked its way from distributors to your favorite stores and bars. So have the 2+1 gift packs featuring Winter is Here and previously-released Fire and Blood Red Ale along with an Ommegang and Game of Thrones-branded glass. The beer and the gift packs are available nearly nationwide by now. Some locations received their beer sooner than others due to shipping times.
If you are in the Cooperstown area, you may now purchase Winter is Here, the gift packs, and a very limited amount of Fire and Blood Red Ale in single bottles at the brewery store. We had some Fire and Blood bottles that were not used in the gift packs but it is not enough for distribution so it will be sold on its own only at the brewery and only while the limited supply lasts. The Drogon label is the only label used for this release of Fire and Blood.
It is illegal for us to sell online or directly to customers who are not at the brewery, so we cannot take any online orders. We sell the beer from the brewery to distributors who then sell to retailers (bars, grocery stores and other locations). There are a few websites that are allowed to sell beer directly to fans and we will post those them here as they come in.
Ommegang is currently not distributed in Mississippi, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming so unfortunately Winter is Here and the gift packs will not be for sale in these states. Distributors in the following states have ordered this release: AL, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, GA, HI, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, VA, VT, WA, WI, WV, plus Washington, D.C., the U.S.V.I., and Puerto Rico. Outside of the United States, these beers may only be available in Ontario and Alberta, Canada. There is not currently a release date set for Canada. We’re working with our distributor there and we’ll update this post when/if we have one.
We have a beer finder that will show the locations that the beer has been sold to. The beer finder works by aggregating sales data from the distributor and it is uploaded often a few days after the sale into the account. With the great demand it might even be sold out by the time it is listed on our beer finder, so we strongly encourage you to call your local retailers to ask about availability before you drive around to find it. When you do find Winter is Here and the gift packs, you can tag a photo of the beer with #GoTxOmmegang on social media to let friends know where you found it.
