Howdy, Thirsty Thursday beer painting fans! I was hitting a wall with the art history beer parody paintings, and I was talking it over with my friend, Kara, who I can credit with the brilliant idea I used for the Spotted Cow painting. Her uncle was visiting and had brought over a mix-pack of Alaskan Brewing beers. These are not the most sought-after beers, but are often the most consumed ones in Alaska, kind of like Yuengling in Philly. They are popular across the Pacific Northwest as well. I have some of my fondest memories sitting on the beach at Point Woronzof sipping an Alaskan Amber. Kara told me to paint a polar bear from the Coca Cola commercials drinking an Alaskan White, because it has a polar bear on the label. I thought that this was a great idea and here it is. Alaskan White wit-style ale is a very popular Alaskan Brewing offering, and was one of the first paintings snapped up from the original 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall painting show I did back in 2011. I hope you find this as humorous as I do, because I intend to extrapolate on this series. Cheers! I hope you are enjoying your Alaskan summer as much as I am!
