This morning, we had a blast getting to meet Hafpór Júlíus Björnsson—better know as Game of Throne’s Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane! Hafpór, the second-strongest man in the world, stars in this year’s Philadelphia Renaissance Faire, where he plays King Thor, the leader of an invading Viking horde. We saw him with today Philly Weekly around lunch, when Square 1682’s Chef Caitlin Mateo brought him her fine Skuna Bay Salmon.
Before the Viking Invasion at Philly’s RenFaire, you can catch Hafpór at Devil’s Den tonight from 5-6 PM. Raise a glass of your favorite Game of Thrones-style brew to The Mountain That Rides himself; sister brewer Barren Hill’s “North of the Wall” white IPA and Ommegang’s “Three-Eyed Raven” black saison are on tap for the occasion! Cheers!
