Valar Dohaeris (All Men Must Serve). I thought Braavos was analogous to Italy (are there any Italian beers available in Canada?), but the folks at Ommegang went with Belgium. And for a television tie-in beer, it's a perfect Belgian style beer; yeasty, with a spice & honey flavour. It's also surprisingly strong, at 9%. If you haven't had a Belgian-style beer before, try an actual one first thought. They're good, but they're not for everyone.
The bottle itself is quite impressive too - I wish I had filmed opening it as it made a very satisfying champagne-esque 'pop'. I will say though, if you're purchasing this entirely for the Game of Thrones tie-in and for possibly display, the labels are poorly adhered & the top label is actually askew. I looked through all of the bottles I found and every single one had pealing, ripped or poorly placed labels.
But I bought it for the tie-in AND the beer. And in the end, Valar Morghulis.
