Anyway, I painted this with the Idaho trip I did this past summer on my mind. I love cutthroat trout and have painted them before but each new painting is separate animal, not unlike the fish themselves.
For those wondering if this item will be for sale, the answer is no. I did this work at the request of my father who asked for an original for a charity auction he is working with (For those in the northwest Washington area, you might be able to get in on this). I will be however making a few prints available for purchase soon. Feel free to Email Me if this is a work you would like to have as an 8x10 print.

Soo Brew Company for one brew and ended up with a good dose of Soo brew. Imagine bellying up to a bar in 1890 on the American frontier and ordering a beer and getting slid down to you a handed crafted brew that surpasses a lot of micro brews on the market. If you can imagine that you need to visit Sault St. Marie Michigan where the the locals are known are yoopers and all others are known as trolls.
I started the afternoon with the highly recommended Braveheart Stout (named after the owners dog) for a rich yet smoothly thick brew and then next the Maggie's Red (a brew named after the ownrers daughter).
Both are great complex brews that are not only VERY smooth but also are so slowly brewed that they lack the harsh alcohols that cause a hangover. I spent a little time with the owner and brew master to talk about his process. I even watched as he tested and measured the alcohol and brew process of a few brews working in the vats behind the bar. What a great place!
I also spent a bit of time with the owners un-official taste tester and the guy that crafted all the hearty tables in the bar (as well as local craftsman) and got a good look at the soul of the soo. Analysis, the Soo is about people that do and not people that rely on others to do for them. Long story sort, If you are in the Soo and looking for a great place to kick back and drink some good brews, head to the SOO Brewing Company for the best brews around!!
