Stony Brook Red
A bottle of Sam Adams Barrel Room Collection Stony Brook Red; it was really good Belgian-style beer.
Shades of Belgian Beer
A sketch of various different glasses while a few friends and I spent a pleasant afternoon at a place called ‘The Blue Monk’ that had an absolutely amazing beer selection (32 different draft beers, more than a dozen Belgian varieties).
Whenever I’m hanging out with friends and we’re having a few beers, I joke about my glass being ‘broken’ when it’s empty (with the implication that it needs to be fixed with the addition of more beer).
A Night’s Drinking With Friends
There is a neat little bar in Morgantown called Jay’s Getaway that specializes in imported and limited run beers (as well as plenty of offerings from smaller breweries around the states). By the end of our time there, we end up with ltos of interesting bottles and glasses on the table. This quick sketch was my attempt at capturing some of that variation in bottle and glass shapes and sizes.
The bar was out of Guinness (at 5:30 on a Friday…they need to have a talk with whoever does their ordering!), so my plan to sketch a Guinness out on the deck while I waited for friends to join me got revised to sketching a Newcastle instead.
Mountain State Brewing Company
Inspired by the logo of a local pub, I built a page around it (brewing company logo by Sean Conroy).
