When it comes to Game of Thrones, there are a few images that come instantly to mind — and most of them probably involve dragons and/or incest. That’s cool, the show stays on brand. But there is another character that makes a lot of appearances on the show — in fact, I don’t know if an episode has passed by without seeing it. That character is alcohol. There is so much booze on the show thatGame of Thrones alcohol quotes are basically a sub-genre of the script. So if you’re looking for a little inspiration for your next drinking session or boozy Instagram quote, you might just want to turn to GoT.
Of course, the amount of booze in Game of Thrones is not a blank check to go and get wrecked — I mean, they’re all too busy worrying about staying alive to worry about the state of their livers.

Here are nine of the best Game of Thrones drinking quotes.
