Year of Beer Paintings – Day 88

Today’s Year of Beer painting is of Odyssey Imperial IPA from Sly Fox Brewing Company!  I cracked this can with my friend Jay from Philly, mailed to me by my friend Rich from Philly.  It was cool drinking PA beer with a guy from PA.  He was stoked to have a little taste from home, as we slaved in the kitchen making a home-brewed batch of cream ale.  Making beer that won’t go far, while drinking beer from afar!  What a life, eh?  The Sly Fox Odyssey is tasty and is a good example of a double IPA with fun graphics on the can.  I wish I was able to brew IPA well (hoping with my next brew kit upgrade to do it right).

The more I read about beer-related events in Philadelphia, the more I want to go there to experience the beer scene first hand.  I see a trip in my near future.  Sly Fox has a Maibock Fest with an annual goat race!  How cool is that?  Right in line with the Running of the Reindeer here during Fur Rondezvous in Anchorage, Alaska.  They name the year’s Maibock after the goat that wins the race, so the last two years the beer has been called Peggy.  I like the name of the first goat that won, Weird Beard!  Coincidentally, the barley wine at Silver Gulch Brewing Co. in Fairbanks is also named Weird Beard.  I wonder if there’s a connection.

Cheers to a successful brewery known as Sly Fox!  I wish it distributed to Alaska!  Maybe we can have our own goat (or REINDEEER!) race… maybe on King Street, or at Arkose?

You can purchase this painting, or a limited-edition print at my Etsy Shop.
