It Is Now Possible To Drink Beer In a Real-Life Hobbit Pub
Fans of Lord of the Rings, here is a piece of good news for you—you can now drink beer in a real-life hobbit pub.
Inspired by a pub of the same name featured in the iconic fantasy series, 'The Green Dragon' is “a place to drink, a place to meet, a place to rest your hairy feet”.
Officially opened by New Zealand Prime Minister John Key late last month, the hobbit pub is located in Hobbiton, near Matamata, New Zealand—the same location where the movies were filmed.
Constructed by a 80-person crew, The Green Dragon is carefully decorated with accurate details to offer visitors a “true hobbit experience”.
Heralding the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey this month, the pub is the latest in a string of hobbit-related marketing efforts that seek to turn New Zealand into Middle Earth.
