Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #83, July 28, 2016, Daisy Cutter Pale Ale by Half Acre Beer Co.

Happy Thirsty Thursday!  Today I want to talk a little about video games.  I put my four favorite  classic arcade games in this composition, and the beer is placed on a table console.  Video games have always been one of the things I love, from Commodore to Playstation, I have enjoyed them all.  Arcades though charge per play, which was hardly ever allowed for me.  I could maybe play one, or two quarters when I really was lucky.  Of course I got to go to Chuck E. Cheese’s‎, where you get tokens with pizza, so that is where I played the most arcade games as a child.  In college there was a free Rampart console that we would play endlessly, it was so great!  But my classic arcade favorites are Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Galaga, and Golden Axe.  I remember countless hours played on all of these games.  They just scream fun!  I was thinking about Half Acre Beer Company lately, because it collaborated on a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp beer with a variety of other breweries.  Anyway, top of mind brought me to this painting here.  Arcade video games and Half Acre’s tasty beers.  I would have chosen Space as my Half Acre beer to paint, but come to think of it, Daisy Cutter would probably keep me in better game playing form.  Also, Space is not available in cans yet, which I think would be a cool release.  We stopped at the brewery during our trip to Chicago last summer, and both Space and Daisy Cutter were superb.  Actually, every beer I had at Half Acre was really good.  Cheers to some of my favorite things, BEER and VIDEO GAMES!
