Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #80, July 7, 2016, Kodiak Brown Ale by Midnight Sun Brewing Co.

A huge Kodiak Brown bear just grabbed a hold of my last 22 oz bottle of Midnight Sun Brewing Company’s Kodiak Brown Ale!  OmG!  I think he is going to drink it in one gulp!  Excuse me while I sprint in the other direction.  I know you are not supposed to run from a bear, but maybe he will be savoring the flavor of the beer long enough for me to outrun my fellow campers. 

Mark Staples started brewing Kodiak Brown back when he was home-brewing, before he and Barb Miller started Midnight Sun Brewing Company back in 1995.  It is a staple for the brewery, and is always available in 22 oz bottles and in 12 oz cans here in Alaska.  A good value at the Loft with a 12 oz serving for only 3 dollars, which means you can buy a round for six friends and still only chew up one 20 dollar bill.  The 12 oz cans make a great packing beer for rafting, fishing, biking, backpacking, or any outdoor adventure, because dark beer tastes great warm, straight from the can, or after being chilled in a creek.  I propose a toast to the grizz in all of us!  Drink a Kodiak Brown like you mean it!  Cheers to the long days and short nights of July!  Thanks MSBC!

Year of Beer Paintings – Day 2

The second “Year of Beer” painting for January 2nd is Kodiak Brown Ale up on the side of Mt. Alyeska!  Beer just tastes better when you are skiing, or snowboarding.  Midnight Sun’s Kodiak Brown is a robust brown ale!  Tomorrow I will be hanging paintings at the MSBC Loft for my First Friday art opening, a beer-themed art show called A Toast to Our Mountains.  I am completely excited to be “Decking the Halls” at MSBC after hours.  Hope to see you on Friday from 5 – 8 PM.

The original painting sold. You can purchase a limited-edition print at my Etsy shop.
