Year of Beer Paintings – Day 100!!!!!

Today is day 100 of the Year of Beer Paintings!!!  The beer of the day is Big Wave Golden Ale!  Kona Brewing rocks, brah!  You can’t get any more Aloha in a bottle than this brewery do!  Yeah!  When I’m hangin’ ten, rockin’ a big wave, the only thing on my brain is Kona’s Big Wave Golden Ale.  Dis beer be fresh and sessionable, the only way a brew totally should be, yeah!  Nothing is better than hydrating after a long day out on the waves.  The North Shore is the place to hit, but after that, skip the shaved ice an’ get grindin’ on some of dese tasty brews right away.  But don’ be shark bait, and don’ talk stink about Kona brew.  Both dese things are chicken skin kine, yeah.  ‘Cuz when we pau hana for the day, I be sippin’ on the real thing right at the brewery, yeah.  ‘Cuz, if you be given the stink eye to the Kona crew or any of their righteous beers, you gonna be gettin’ beef from me, yeah.

To Kona’s Big Wave Golden Ale, yeah.  Dis beer brok’ da mouf, ‘cuz if I get a choke of dese brews I be mekin’ house right in the beer garden, brah!

Year of Beer Paintings – Day 98

Hawaii!  Here I come!  This morning I woke up to a fresh dusting of snow, and tonight I will be walking on old fire rock on the Big Island!  Hopefully, in a couple days I’ll be painting live in the tropical beer garden at the brewery complex where Fire Rock Pale Ale is brewed.  I love how Kona Brewing Company has bottled the spirit of aloha.  It must be hard to fit that much love into a bottle!

This beer is pretty good and the label makes it feel festive.  It is just the beer to take to an Alaskan luau party.  I personally prefer the Longboard Lager, but this one has Pele’s power backing the name.  Don’t be too jealous of me yet, I will probably be on a plane waiting to land when you are reading this.  A five to six hour flight, followed by an inter-island hop isn’t what I really wanted to do today, but it is totally worth it!  And at least I have the whole trip ahead of me!

Mahalo, Kona Brewing for making this stylish pale ale and for making it available in Alaska, bringing the spirit of the islands to the far north!  Aloha!
