The featured beer painting of the day is of Wind River Brewing Company’s Wyoming Pale Ale. This beer came from Pinedale, Wyoming, and is the only Wyoming beer I have ever tasted. This beer boasts a big tall can, and is as strong as an IPA at 7.2% ABV. It’s brewed with Wind River Glacier water, and is as fresh as the Wyoming wind. Huge malt backbone with a healthy dose of bittering hops makes this one a hearty brew. I don’t think I would offer this one to a novice beer drinker, it is not your average pale ale. The WPA will give you a bit of a flavor bite, especially if you are not prepared for a beer with real flavor. I am getting the itch to go to Jackson Hole for a ski trip, but I bet it would be fun in the summer, as long as it doesn’t get too hot when I am there. I love living in Alaska, because if it hits 80 degrees outside everybody melts into the tundra. Not a common occurrence in a place where trucks come with 4×4, and houses don’t have air conditioning. Honey, I just heard the Grand Tetons are calling.
Cheers to Wind River’s Wyoming Pale Ale! I hope to drink one of these in Wyoming.
