Wednesday, May 17, 2017 | Posted by Marisa Mindyas

BEDFORD HEIGHTS, OH- Brewery Ommegangs’ Bend the Knee Strong Golden Ale hits Cleveland on June 3.

Brewery Ommegang is releasing the seventh beer in their Game of Thrones-inspired series and they chose Cleveland as one of their launch cities. Previous beers in the highly successful collaboration include: Seven Kingdoms, Three Eyed Raven, Valar Morghulis Dubbel Ale, Fire and Blood Red Ale, Take the Black Stout and Iron Throne Blonde Ale.

The big release will take place at Lakewood Winking Lizard Tavern on June 3rd from 5-8pm and guests must be 21+ to attend. This will be a medieval night to remember and hopefully not forget! They are calling it the “Feast of Bend the Knee Ale.” “With this next Game of Thrones-inspired release, we wanted a beer and a pack that was fit for a king… or a queen,” said Brewery Ommegang President, Doug Campbell.

Winking Lizard will feature a prixe fixe menu with choices that include turkey, seafood, pork steak, beef rib and half chicken platters that all include a glass of the Bend the Knee Ale for $4.00. Bottles will be available downstairs at Lizardville. Guests will also be able to try the Ommegang Pale Sour Ale and Hennepin Saison.

John Lane, partner and Beermeister of the Winking Lizard Tavern, said, “Brewery Ommegang has done a marvelous job, marketing and creating, this series of beers. I can’t wait to try this delicious Golden Ale made with honey.”

Live music, a best dressed contest, Game of Thrones trivia and more will be some of our entertainment pieces for the night. We suggest bringing your cameras because there will definitely be many moments to capture!

The beer, Bend the Knee, is a Golden Ale weighing in at 8.5% alcohol by volume. Honey is added in the fermentation process creating a delicate beer that finishes smooth and dry.
