'THRONES' DOWNLOAD HBO's Emmy record-setting series may be between seasons, but its most recent run is available download-to-own -- for the first time, months before it comes out on Blu-ray/DVD. The full-season download "Game of Thrones: The Complete Fifth Season" includes bonus features introducing the new Dome locale, exploring the story's weapons and more. Available at iTunes, Google Play, other digital retailers.
'THRONES' BEER Fans can also down a taste of HBO's hit to tide them over. Cooperstown's Brewery Ommegang, which regularly crafts brews inspired by the series, is releasing a licensed gift pack of two 2013 favorites: Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout. Both 750-milliliter corked bottles are packaged with a "Game of Thrones" logo glass. They're also available separately, and on draft. (Disclosure: Somebody at our house pronounced their samples quite tasty.) More at ommegang.com/blog
