Year of Beer Paintings – Day 281

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.

The original painting sold. You can purchase a limited-edition print at my Etsy shop.
