Harrington's Breweries were commissioned to craft a 1% ABV stout for the first Lord of the Rings movie. They wanted authenticity, look, taste, and smell of real beer to create the atmosphere for the actors, but without the alcohol content. So Harrington's produced "SobeRing Thought"...a 1% ABV stout.
SobeRing Though first featured in the first Lord of the Rings movie when the hobbits arrive at the Sign of the Prancing Pony Bar looking for Gandalf, where one of the hobbits exclaims, "You can get it in a pint?!"åÊ
