Chances are you’ve already seen the Game of Thrones season three premier at least once. And for most, once may suffice. But for those with an insatiable thirst for fantasy the place to be tonight is Old Eagle Tavern in Manayunk.
A replay of Sunday’s new episode may draw a few fans, but it’s specialty brew and the medieval menu that’s really the news.
Old Eagle Tavern has obtained a stash of the Ommengang Iron Throne, a collabo beer between the brewery and HBO. Ommengang Iron Throne is a 750 ml bottle of blonde ale brewed with pils, honey malt and red wheat. It’s the first of four limited release beers created for the third season and is already sold out in most area shops [American Sardine Bar announced that they tapped a keg just yesterday, but there's not telling how long it will last].
Old Eagle Tavern’s chef Morgan Malachi has a menu full of medieval fantasy with dishes including roasted turkey legs with a fiery dragon sauce, a dragon egg appetizer (spicy deviled eggs) and dragon chili sauced corn on the cob.
So pull up a stool and enjoy a horn of ale that’s made from the stuff of legends. And while you’re eating your turkey leg, don’t forget to thank the old gods and the new - for the long summer to come. Cause here in Philly, winter is over!
