Year of Beer Paintings – Day 294

The featured beer painting of the day is of Extra Pale Ale by Summit Brewing Company, located in St. Paul, Minnesota! This is a classic from St. Paul, and is perfect for almost any occasion. My friends Petr and Lisa brought this one for me from their travels to Minnesota this summer. Last night I paired it with some amazing pizza that my wife made, and I wish I had more than one, because I had to share with my dinner guests, but my homebrew seemed to be a big hit as well. Everything about Summit Brewing is pretty classy from its slick golden label showcasing the St. Paul skyline, to the embossed bottle with decorative grains. Not to mention the amazing copper brew kettles. I love the dry hopped flavor of this delicious brew. Nice and bready with a fine after bite of hops. I think it might be my favorite Minnesota beer at this time. Minnesota is now on my “to visit” list. Maria and I are taking a trip to the North East this year, but next year we might just load up our truck and swing around the states on a tour, or a series of shorter trips like the upcoming trip to PA, MA, NY, DE, VT, NJ, and ME. Our new mission is to make it to all 50 states, and I have been to about 13 so far. At least we have the hard ones (AK and HI) covered already.

Cheers to beers from Summit Brewing! Can’t wait until I am sitting in St. Paul sipping on a fresh one.

The original oil painting sold, but you can purchase a limited-edition print, or commission a custom beer painting at my Etsy shop.

    I’ve been following your blog since Barb and John Rice turned me on to it 2 months ago. I still need to go back and review all the ones I missed, but so far I’ve liked what I’ve seen. This is the first beer that I’ve actually had, and I agree with your assessment – it goes very well with food. Good luck in getting all 50 states!!
