Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #40, October 1, 2015

Happy Thirsty Thursday! I am on the road tracking down tasty beers in the Pacific Northwest for the next two weeks. Although I am in the PNW, I am posting a painting of a recent acquisition from Pennsylvania – Cuvee Du Soleil by McKenzie Brew House. This is a lovely multigrain Grisette, lightly spiced with orange peel, ginger, grains of paradise and a dose of exotic Jaggery sugar. Barrel aged in a Chadds Ford cask, this beer is light and refreshing with complex flavors that intrigue the palate. McKenzie Brew House has three establishments in Pennsylvania. If the food there is as good as this example of brew, I will be sure to visit on my next trip to PA. Rich Morgan, my BEER N.E.R.D friend from West Chester has been communicating with the brewer who sent me the reference material for the backdrop in this painting. I eagerly await the barrel-aged quad that will be coming out next! Great work McKenzie Brew House!

The original oil painting, and limited-edition prints are for sale at my Etsy shop.
