I'm okay with leaving it wide open. As long as it's somehow related to a character or event from the show, I say have at it.

Make it a bastard of two or more styles of mead, with warming wintery spices.

Haha. Not sure how the Dragonfruit is in Upstate NY. Never bought it before. Guess we'll find out. But I agree it's exotic to say the least.

I'd be down for this, especially in the braggot category.

Waddaya say to minimum OG being 1.090 but the honey/grain bill can be anything you want. Must include one LOCAL ingredient that you can find (or could find if you didn't live downtown) in nature near your home to give it a sort of medieval twist. Extra points of course for best name.

She-Bear Braggot?

Jorah's Mom!

(There is a definitely a She-Bear Mormont in the most recent book- she hangs out with Asha when she is a prisoner. I like the Jorah's Momma idea a lot better though.)

((Currently loving the idea of Brienne the Beauty Barleywine))

I guess Ill get in on this,
The Red Wedding (for those who have read the books, don't spoil. And for those who haven't, don't google it).

4 lbs honey
1.5 cups raspberries
3 cups blackberries
2 cups lingenberry concentrate
2 cinnamon sticks
2 cloves
Water to 1.5 Gallons
Half teaspoon pectic enzyme
Pasteur red yeast

Dissolve honey in room temp water. In a clean and sanitized blender add lingen concentrate and berries (leave out 2 cups of blackberries). Blend to a very fine smoothie. Add smoothie to must and move must to fermenting bucket. Bring level to 1.5 gallons and pitch yeast. Ferment to completion in bucket. Rack as much as possible to 1 gal carboy excluding fruit paste and lees and store extras for topping off. With the blackberries, blend them and run pulp through coffee filters to strain pulp. Age to clear.
