The featured beer painting of the day is of Brunette Nut Brown Ale by Nebraska Brewing Company, located in La Vista, Nebraska. This English-style brown ale is brewed with six different malts and a perfect hop addition schedule. The malt and hop combination produces a nutty flavor that took me by surprise. I have had beer from most states in the country, but never from Nebraska. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought the lady on the can was pretty attractive, and I already wanted to hold this beer in my hands just because the product design was alluring. I poured it into a shapely glass as I thought it complimented the whole concept of a sexy beer. I had to leave the background blank on this one, and paint it larger than life in order to show all the detail on the can. Oh yeah, I think this beer would be awesome if it came in huge cans like Fosters. Overall, the Brunette is a great session-able brew. I would give it a solid two thumbs up and recommend it to my friends. Too bad Nebraska Brewing does not distribute to Alaska. Thanks, Rich, for sending such a viable Year of Beer entry! I am so glad you are an important part of this project! Six weeks ‘till I get on a plane to the lower 48 states, and tour around breweries on the East coast! Time to start planning that trip. Too bad I can’t stop in Nebraska on this trip! “Uh, pilot, could you pull over? I want to stop for a beer.”
Cheers to Brunette Nut Brown Ale! A fantastic session ale with a perfect malt and hop balance that makes other English style brown ales crumble in comparison!
