Year of Beer Paintings – Day 186

The beer painting of the day is of Kalamazoo Stout by Bell’s Brewery pictured in Kalamazoo!  I tasted this one on the lawn of my parent’s front yard as I smoked 20 lbs of the finest Kasilof Sockeye Red Salmon you can find.  The smoked salmon takes about five to eight hours to finish.  So I painted on the lawn and intermittently refreshed the wood chips in the smokers.  I sampled some of the smaller pieces of smoked fish as I was sipping on this one.  Nothing makes a beer taste better than salty snacks, and I was in heaven.  I loved this beer!  It was nice and full-bodied, not a huge stout at 6%, but a tasty one.  The brewers’ licorice is a nice touch — not overpowering, but an obvious addition and a welcomed one in my mind!

I have to admit I have never been to Kalamazoo, but I am getting more and more inclined to show up.  Not only because Bell’s is a destination in itself, but also because Kalamazoo looks like a nice place to be.

Cheers to Kalamazoo Stout and cheers to delicious flavored beers!  I hope I get to drink Kalamazoo Stout in Kalamazoo!

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