Safely made it to my shack in McCarthy at 2 AM in a rainstorm last night. Looks like the cabin project weathered the harsh Wrangell mountains winter just fine.
The daily beer painting is of Singha Lager Beer from the Boon Rawd Brewery Company in the lovely country of Thailand. Singha (pronounced Sing in Thai) is a Euro style pale lager brewed since 1933. Originally brewing to supplement a growing interest in European imported beer, Boon Rawd is the first, and oldest Thai brewery. The Singha, or garuda is the name of the lion creature pictured on the bottle. Singha beer is the only beer allowed to have this royal symbol on its bottle, receiving the official government stamp in 1939. Look closely at the stamp on the bottleneck and you will see that it says, “By royal permission”.
Another amazing thing about this beer is that it is an all-malt beer, which makes it a true Euro style lager. American lagers have adjunct grains added, such as rice and corn, so for an Asian brewery to forgo the rice is noteworthy, and is obvious in the final product!
Translation: “Thank you! It is delicious!”
