Okay, I’m probably a week late with this post, but better late than never right?
I was on the hunt for a bottle of the seasonal Cherry Blossom Capital Kombucha. I thought it would be a good topic for this column, and I thought I might be able to find a bottle at Whole Foods Market on P Street.
Upstate New York brewery Ommegang announced earlier this year that it was teaming up with HBO’s popular fantasy franchise to create a series “Game of Thrones” beers. The first one, a 6.5 percent ABV blonde called Iron Throne Blonde Ale came out just in time for the March 31st season’s premiere of the show.
You can grab a 16-oz pint tonight with some friends and drink while discussing last night’s episode. Or, you can purchase a growler and have friends over next Sunday to watch the latest episode.
The Whole Foods growlers come in two sizes: 32 oz and 64 oz. Each retail (empty) for $4.99 and then it’s an additional $12 for a small fill of “Game of Thrones” beer and $24 for the bigger one.Oh, and if you’re wondering about Capital Kombucha’s Cherry Blossom drink, I did end up finding it at Pleasant Pops.
While I enjoyed trying it out and absolutely love the beautifully label (designed by Torie Partridge of the appropriately named Cherry Blossom Creative, I must say I’m still not sold on kombucha, overall. So I might stick to the “Game of Thrones” beer for now.
