Toast Jon Snow with this limited-edition Game of Thrones beer called King in the North. 

Brewery Ommegang

HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, based on G.R.R. Martin's novels, ends its run in 2019. To see it off, here's a Game of Thrones-themed beer you can drink, probably while watching your favorite characters die one by one.

HBO partnered with New York-based Brewery Ommegang to create the new beer called King in the North, according to the brewery's official website.

"Inspired by Jon Snow, this barrel-aged imperial stout is brewed to sustain a leader through a long, dark night," Brewery Ommegang's website says. "The beer pours jet black with a thick tan head, and has aromas of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate blend with those of oak, bourbon, and vanilla."

The limited-edition beer will be available at select retailers starting on Black Friday , Nov. 23, in 750 milliliter bottles. The retail price for bottle is $13.

King in the North is the last of four special beers in the brewery's Game of Thrones-inspired Royal Reserve Collection -- a series of four limited-release beers designed and brewed as an homage to characters battling for control over the Seven Kingdoms.

Previous Game of Throne beers include a barleywine called Hand of the Queen, a sour blonde blend called Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, and a smoked porter and kriek blend called Mother of Dragons.

But if you want all four of these beers, there's also a gift pack available at select retailers. It features one 12-ounce bottle of each of the four Royal Reserve Collection beers and a collectible Game of Thrones glass, and retails for $25.
