You can drink the whole town dry,
But you’ll never find a beer so brown,
Oh you’ll never find a beer so brown,
As the one we drink in our hometown,
As the one we drink in our hometown.
You can drink your fancy ales,
You can drink them by the flagon,
But the only brew for the brave and true…
…comes from the Green Dragon!
The Return Of The King, Film Edition
Ariel and I got to do our own rendition of this at the real Green Dragon Inn, which is a fully functional pub on the Hobbiton set in Matamata, New Zealand. In addition to being a fun place, they make their own homemade beers – and surprise – they’re pretty good!
Interestingly this song was just made for the movie and isn’t in the books. An odd choice considering how many songs/poems are actually in The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. But it was a fun addition so we’ll allow it.
