Moose Drool Brown Ale is probably the most famous beer that is brewed at Big Sky Brewing Company, not to be confused with the less popular and not as tasty Moosehead Lager made in Canada. I have been having fun lately painting Alaskan animals who got a hold of some adult beverages. I am pretty sure a moose would love to drink a Moose Drool! In 2008 a moose wandered to downtown Anchorage and ate so many fermented Mountain-ash berries that he became a bit intoxicated, and proceeded to get tangled up in some Christmas lights, and dragging them as he walked around downtown. As you can imagine, this created a lot of excitement among the locals, and Buzzwinkle became a famous moose! Midnight Sun Brewing even released a special beer in honor of this silly moose called Buzzwinkle Sour Wheat Ale, with a label created by cartoonist Chad Carpenter. So, I’m pretty sure a moose would enjoy a tasty craft beer.
Heres’ a shameless plug: my art show at Midnight Sun Brewing Co. comes down tonight, so if you get a chance to get in there today, take a look, grab a beer, an art print, or snag a brand new original painting!
Cheers to the WILD life of Alaska! May your beer stay safe away from the hoofs, paws, or claws of a thirsty beast when you are out adventuring with beer!
