Default Game of Thrones Beer: Has to be something better than a blonde ale?

So I'm looking back at this Ommegang release again

http://beerpulse.com/2012/12/ommegan...-thrones-deal/

and thinking to myself that this is pretty awesome but there has to be a better way to honor such an awesomely violent show with something better than a blonde ale to mimic the Lannister's blonde hair.

Anyone got any better ideas? I know there are fans on here based off of the other GoT threads so whose got a good idea?

I'm assuming they mean a Belgian Blonde. I'd be quite flattered if someone brewed one of those in my honor.

I would think a Winter "is coming" Lager would be a better beer. Or perhaps a dragon's breath something.

I saw a cookbook a while back based on the book and it had a few beer recipes in it. One for the lanisters, starks and the targaryens if I remember correctly.

In honor of the Lannister's Hair color?

They should have chosen something else, like maybe an "IncestuALE".

I almost lost my coffee when I read that this morning. But how would you pull off an incestuAle? Maybe just a bunch of hops from the same family?

Personally, I would think a braggot would be the way to go, in the absense of true mead.

Braggot would be good. And I've never made one. Hmm?
