Year of Beer Paintings – Day 354

Winter Solstice is upon us – today and tomorrow are the longest nights of the year! The featured beer painting for today is a timely choice, Hibernator Smoked Double Bock by Midnight Sun Brewing Company. Nothing is as fitting as a beer called Hibernator for the longest night of the year. In fact, thinking about it makes me feel like heading back to bed right now! Sleeping in during the holiday break in Alaska is probably the best feeling, right there with staying up until it gets dark on Summer solstice on the longest day of the year. This beer is one of eight in the Alaskana Series from MSBC. Every beer that has been released so far in the series has been impressive! This one is sweet and smoky, and definitely a winter warmer at 7.4% ABV. If you finish a whole 22 ounce bottle on your own, you better go find a den for a long, restful sleep, like the bear in this painting, who is sleeping in a roomy ice cave.

Cheers to Hibernator, the beer named after the bliss of sleeping during the heart of winter. ZzZzZzZz…

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