“For all the beer + Game of Thrones fans out there, Jack Rose Dining Saloon is hosting a very special launch party this Thursday, October 13 from 5 to 10 p.m. that combines the best of both worlds.
Every year, Brewery Ommegang out of Cooperstown, New York collaborates with HBO’s Game of Thrones on a special beer inspired by the critically-acclaimed show. The 7th release in the anticipated series is “Valar Dohaeris” – a Tripel Ale named after the premiere episode of the 3rd season, meaning “all men must serve” – and Jack Rose is thrilled to host the beer’s exclusive launch in DC this week. This beer is only released once a year and Jack Rose is the official bar to try it in DC.
2007 18th Street, NW
This Thursday, guests can try “Valar Dohaeris” along with other past releases which Beer Director Nahem Simon has collected over the years, such as Game of Thrones’ “Take the Black” stout, two limited-edition Three Philosophers kegs (barrel-aged and strawberry/cranberry), plus an array of Ommegang, Boulevard & Duvel beers “to have you singing songs of merriment in High Valyrian.” All beers are only $6 from 5-10 p.m.
And costumes are encouraged, for a chance to win prizes! Beer Director Nahem Simon invites guests to “don their best Game of Thrones costume or Wildling garb for a chance to win a plethora of riches from the vaults of the Iron Bank of Braavos!” The event is free to attend.”
