Our newest Game of Thrones-inspired beer has a name – Valar Dohaeris Tripel Ale – and it’s coming to shelves and taps near you, along with a re-release of Valar Morghulis Dubbel Ale!
Cases and kegs of Valar Dohaeris and special gift packs featuring a bottle of each beer plus a beautiful glass are now working their way from our distributors to your favorite stores and bars. There are always a lot of questions about how to get the Game of Thrones-inspired beers and it’s proved helpful for us to post search tips for beer fans seeking out this release.
The national release date for Valar Dohaeris and the gift packs is Monday, October 10. That’s the day most retailers across the US will begin sales. If you are in the Cooperstown area, you can buy these at the brewery store beginning Saturday, October 8 (we’re open 12-5 pm daily.)
We have a beer finder that will show the locations that the beer has been sold to and you can use this to search for retailers near your zip code. 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 for this series of beers, they 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 in advance before taking a road trip to see them.
Valar Dohaeris and the gift packs will not be sold in Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, Montana, Oklahoma, Vermont, Wisconsin, Wyoming. Outside of the United States, this will be available in Ontario, Canada. There is not currently a release date set for Canada but we’ll update this post when we have one.
It is illegal for us to sell online or directly to customers who are not at the brewery, so we cannot do any online orders. There are a few websites that are allowed to sell beer directly to fans and we will post those here as they come in. For starters, check out Craftshack.com.
