Year of Beer Paintings – Day 144

The daily beer painting is of Curmudgeon Old Ale from Founders Brewing Company.  If there is one statement I could make about this beer, I would say, it is smooth!  A nice old ale brewed with molasses and aged in oak casks, this beer is a bit on the strong side coming in at 9.8% ABV.  The flavor is a bit fruity with oak being one of the strongest characteristics; it finishes with bold whiskey-like booziness.

Keep your eyes out for the lighthouse when you are drinking this, because if you have a few, you might get lost!  The good news is that with the old curmudgeon himself manning the light, the likelihood of a completely lost cause is diminished.  I love the marketing on this one; what a great name for a beer that is such an easy sipper, but strong in taste!  I just imagine the lighthouse attendant swigging one of these after a long night of keeping watch over the water.

Founders, I am so happy I found out about you!  Please start distributing to Alaska! We have many good breweries, but great beer is always well received here!

You can purchase this painting, or a limited-edition print at my Etsy shop.
