A Yorkshire-based brewery is celebrating the return of popular TV series Game of Thrones with a set of character and beer matches. 

Little Valley brewery’s food scientist and master brewer, Wim van der Spek has paired beers from across the brewery’s core range with his favourite characters from the award-winning series, which returned for its seventh season last night (17 July).

Flagship blonde

Among the pairings recommended by van der Spek are matching the brewery’s Python IPA with Daenerys Targaryen (a Mother of Dragons played by actress Emilia Clarke), and its flagship Tod's Blonde ale with Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage).

Speaking about the pairings, van der Spek said: “Game of Thrones​ has taken over our screens, and in some cases our lives, and shows no signs of stopping soon."

'A little fun'

He added: “Here at Little Valley Brewery, we understand there’s nothing better than kicking back after a long day to a nice beer and your favourite TV series so we decided to have a little fun and pair the nation’s favourite beers with Game of Thrones​ characters!”

Little Valley’s beers are available in cask and bottle across the on-trade now.
