Year of Beer Paintings – Day 167

The beer painting of the day is of Double-Wide IPA by Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri.  This Double American IPA is an 8.5% ABV bitter beer that is full of hoptastic flavor.  You are right, Boulevard Brewing, this beer travels well — all the way to McCarthy, Alaska for my drinking pleasure!

This beer pours with a huge off-white head, a little amber, but mostly bold gold.  It tastes like a pine tree mixed with lemon peel, but then ends with a sweet malt flavor that just makes your tongue salivate for more.  Too bad I only picked up one of these from my favorite beer store, La Bodega, in Anchorage.  Then I drove all the way to McCarthy in a school bus with my soon-to-be brother-in-law.  When I pulled it out of the root cellar, it was ice cold, but it warmed up right away as it was a warm evening, even though we had mixed rain with sunshine all day.  I had pulled out six stumps, so I was thirsty for beer!

Thank you, Boulevard Brewing for making a beer that made it all the way to my driveway-building project in Alaska!

Year of Beer Paintings – Day 59

Today’s Year of Beer painting is Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale by Boulevard Brewing Company.  Recommended to me by Rebecca, at La Bodega, this Saison (farmhouse ale) is brewed in Kansas City, Missouri.  I found it to be a very enjoyable brew, indeed, and I never knew that much about it as it comes from a brewery that was not on my radar.  Boulevard so far has produced the aesthetic experience I hope to get from a brew.  The beer was tasty and I love the simple bottle and the iconic script on the numeral 7.  I read that the fermenter called Tank 7 was a troublesome addition to the brewery that luckily made an amazing Saison, which solved the problems.  I have recently been brewing with Belgian ale yeast.  I like the flavor this particular yeast imparts onto the American ingredients I buy locally at my home brew store, Arctic Brewing Supply.  I hope I have some of that same funky flavor that shows up in Tank 7.

To Belgian ale yeast and the farmhouse style of Saison!  A fruity spicy brew with bold flavor and lots of style!
