Blue Monk hosting 'Thrones' brew debut

Coming up at Blue Monk: an April 1 party celebrating the release of a beer inspired by Season Five debut of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

There will be a costume contest, and the debut of a special Ommegang Brewery draft called Three-Eyed Raven Dark Saison. The event starts at 7 p.m. at 727 Elmwood Ave.

“We’re going to be one of 13 bars in the country,” owner Mike Shatzel said. “They’re doing a huge release of the beer, and stuff like a costume contest." Plans are brewing for other entertainment for evening as well.

Shatzel is a big fan of the show as well as Ommegang’s beer. “My wife is working on her Mother of Dragons outfit,” he said, and they haven’t decided who he will be. “One guy I look like is Hodor, so I don’t know about that.”

The show itself debuts April 12.
