Year of Beer Paintings – Day 300!

The featured beer painting of the day is of Endless River Kolsch-Style Ale from Mother Earth Brewing of Kinston, North Carolina. I opened this beer for the first time for my dinner guests who own the local homebrew supply shop. Lisa is a beer perfectionist and makes some of the best brews I have ever had, and Kolsch and Pilsners are her favorite styles of beer. She gave this beer a very good review, and kept looking at the bottle so she could remember the name of it, and the brewery. I noticed right away how this version of kolsch is bright and clean tasting. Kolsch or Pils are styles that are a litmus test for a brewery. If a brewery has any off flavors in its brews, they will be obvious in the Kolsch and Pils. Not much to hide behind in this simple style of beer. Not only is this beer super tasty, but the label is really pleasant, and I can imagine being out on the river sipping on Endless River Kolsch.

The Mother Earth brewery has the coolest building in Kinston. They are as green as the name suggests. “Peace, Love and Beer” is their motto. They have a six-kilowatt solar system producing endless energy from the Southern sun. They even have recycled blue jeans as insulation and sound barrier built right into the retrofitted historic building. If you like Kolsch style beer, you will be a fan of this one. I certainly am.

Cheers to peace, love and beer! If you are at peace, and you love beer, you will find happiness, or hoppiness at least. Thanks Charlotte for sending me this delicious beer from the other corner of the country!

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