The talented chefs at Garlic, My Soul teamed up with Fanboy Comics Creative Director Sam Rhodes to review a beer worthy of kings. You ale or you die . . .
Brewery Ommegang has teamed up with HBO to produce several limited edition Game of Thrones beers. AWESOME! The first one released is the Iron Throne Blonde Ale, and it’s a malty, golden beer, sunny enough to make a man of the Night Watch think he’s lounging in a wading pool down in Sunspear. The website describes the beer as “lightly malty, rounded out by honey malt sweetness.” Now, normally I don’t go for the malty beers, and I was a little hesitant at first. But, the more I drank, the more the other aspects of this beer opened up and merged with the maltiness to reveal a truly well balanced and bright beer worthy of a true king.

Sometimes, in the life of a geek, you don’t just have a TV show or book series that you love, but you also have a favorite person to share it with. For months, Jennie and I have wanted to make a TARDIS cake in honor of my love of Doctor Who. And, when the time finally came to plan our Whovian confection, I couldn’t stop thinking about my favorite fellow Doctor Who lover, my good friend, Oren.
Among other talents, Oren is a masterful baker of pies and something of a connoisseur of new pie flavors. He and I discovered buttermilk pie in a hole-in-the-wall diner in middle Tennessee when we were on a cross-country road trip last year, and I’ve been telling everyone who would listen about this pie ever since.
