A few of the folks over at The Movie Maniacs found a constructive way to spend their time…cataloging every (at least they think) drink of wine/ale/proper Northern drink taken in Seasons 1-4.
They explain, “Ever watched Game of Thrones and thought sh*t they drink a lot of wine…Stark, Lannister, Baratheon, which house drinks the most? Well I guess your just going to have to watch and find out!”
And of course the of the Lion trumps all…by a landslide. To be fair, we must look at specific things that sway this heavily to one specific house over others:
- Royalty has access to as much wine as they want, whenever they want.
- We spend more time in the Red Keep watching them plot the destruction of…well, lets face it, every other house and each other.
- Lesser houses have been on the road or captured less screen time than despised golden lions (with the exception of the every witty Tyrion, of course).
- In the majority of houses, their numbers continue to drop like flies each season, and in some, their remaining offspring are slightly young to be drinking….which is probably about the age of 11 in Ice and Fire land.
Never mind the bias edge, this seven+ minute video is the Game of Thrones compilation we never knew we needed…or did we? Let’s pour another glass of the wines of Westeros and debate.
