Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #8, February 19, 2015

This week’s Thirsty Thursday painting veers from the pattern of famous paintings turned into beer-themed art, because I got a call on Tuesday morning from a reporter from Channel 11 News who wanted to do a story about my art. She asked if she could film in my studio, but because my studio is really small, I suggested filming at one of my favorite local breweries, Snow Goose Restaurant and Sleeping Lady Brewing Co., because I have several paintings hanging there, the beer is great, and on Wednesdays (and Fridays) growlers are only $5! I also do chalkboard art at this place, so I spend quite a bit of time there. I haven’t painted live in a brewery since November, and I missed doing it, so I suggested doing the interview while I paint a beer. I painted this pint of Urban Wilderness Pale Ale by Sleeping Lady Brewing Co. on the railing of the deck, because this pub has the best deck in town that is packed on sunny days in the summer. This beer is mostly true to its style, but is more hopped than standard pale ales.

I was flattered to be interviewed by Heather Hintze from KTVA. I always worry whether I sound intelligent when speaking about my beer paintings, but figure it will be better to say something about them than nothing at all. Hopefully Heather will edit out all the stupid things I may have said. Painting and talking in front of a camera at the same time is more challenging than you may think. If you live in Anchorage, tune in tonight at 6 PM to Channel 11 News to see my segment.

If you have not visited “The Goose”, I highly recommend it. Keep in mind that if you’re drinking your pint on the deck in high sunlight, move your beer into the shade, or cover it. Direct UV light can damage a beer in just a couple minutes, and will make it taste “skunky”. Thanks to Gary Klopfer, Greg Mills, Dion, Dave, and the rest of the fabulous crew at the Snow Goose Restaurant and Sleeping Lady Brewing! May the restaurant prosper and stay true to its beer-centric roots!

Year of Beer Paintings – Day 16

If you are here in Alaska for AK Beer Week and the Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival, then the Snow Goose Restaurant, and the Sleeping Lady Brewing Company should be on the forefront of your mind today because that is the venue for my favorite Great Northern Brewers Club event.  This is a club-member only event, so if you’re not a member, you can join at the door for $30.  Not only will you get into tonight’s event where you can mingle with brewers from all over the country and sample their special brews, but you’ll also be able to attend monthly meetings, and take advantage of 10% discounts at Arctic Brewing Supply, La Bodega Store, and a couple other businesses.  The beer pictured in today’s Year of Beer painting is the Fish On IPA from Sleeping Lady Brewing Co.  Good job Greg Mills, lead brewer, your ”Fish On” IPA is “Spot On”!  By the way, you can get your growlers filled at this brewery for $5 on Wednesdays and Fridays!

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