Year of Beer Paintings – Day 85

Today’s Year of Beer painting is of Karbach Brewing Co’s Mother-in-Lager, which is a Munich Dunkel lager!  To me it tasted like a Bock, not too hoppy.  Actually, my mother-in-law would love this brew!  She is always after a sweeter, maltier option!  So the story goes that this brew was invented to provide the patience required to deal with a visit from your mother-in-law.  Its dark color is perfect for stealth drinking, coffee cups anybody? I received this can in the mail from Karbach Brewing directly from Houston, Texas!  I was really excited to see a lager in the batch, but I was surprised when I poured a mahogany dark liquid from the can.  Then my second impression was, duh, just because it is lagered doesn’t mean it has to be yellow and fizzy!  I was also stoked on the name.  Great marketing Karbach!  Who wouldn’t have this around just to tell friends, uh oh, I got a case of the Mother-in-Lager, she’s on her way!  Basically, this beer rocks.  What else can grease the ease of impending judgement than a fresh dark lager? To Houston’s beer scene!  I wish distribution to Alaska was possible, because I would keep a case of the Mother-in-Lager on hand!  It’s a seasonal, so stock up now!

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