Even though the season finale of Game of Thrones aired about two weeks ago I wanted to mention that I did manage to watch it style. Of course, I had my miniature crown and sword because I’m silly like that. I was also totally psyched to have found a couple of bottles of the official Game of Thrones beer by Ommegang brewery. I had been looking for this stuff ever since I heard about it, maybe a week after the third season premier. Either because of spotty distribution, or rampant speculative buying, it proved annoyingly elusive. I was lucky enough to stumble across a few bottles while at a World Market. I picked up one and carried it around while I continued to browse (I like looking for flavored coffees.) When I finally got to the checkout line I was surprised (and more than a little perturbed) to see the person in front of me had the remaining three bottles in his shopping cart! I guess these were hard to find due to collectors & speculators after all! (Or, admittedly, fans of the show.) I picked up a second bottle at another World Market later on.
