Our two latest beers as part of this partnership are, Syrax and Caraxes, in celebration of the newest series, "House of the Dragon" coming to HBO and
HBO Max on August 21, 2022. These first editions, which are based on Styrian Dragon hops and dragon fruit, respectively, celebrate the story of the Targaryens and their dragons who ruled Westeros - 200 years before Daenerys Targaryen made it her mission to take back the Iron Throne. The Targaryens ruled with fire and blood. ‘Fire’ is a reference to the legendary dragons they rode, so
it made sense for us to find inspiration for the ingredients in these majestic and terrifying beasts that conquered the Seven Kingdoms." says Mikkel Bjergsø, founder and creative director of Mikkeller.
Based on this, Mikkeller’s team decided to make two distinct beers; one that utilizes Styrian Dragon hops and one that’s infused with Dragon fruit.
Syrax (Session IPA, 3.5% vol.) For this light, bright, and high-flying session IPA, Mikkeller has used Styrian Dragon hops. This imparts some earthy, spicy notes and particularly a grapefruit-like citrus balance atop a light foundation from the low ABV. Ideal to drink while soaking up the sun!
Caraxes (Non Alc dragon fruit Ale, 0.3% vol.) For this wonderful alcohol-free beer, Mikkeller took its fresh, cider-like base beer Limbo, and added fresh dragon fruit. The delicate foundation is topped off with notes of pear and kiwi from the dragon fruit, leading to an exotic, thirst-quenching beer.
