I was following an online conversation where someone was complaining (not without justice!) that people were much more interested in beer than in conservation.

My solution to this is to combine the two.


The Kirtland’s Warbler is endangered as all get out, breeds only in jack pine forests in Michigan, and is believed to number some 5000 individuals. On the bright side, that’s a lot more than there used to be and conservation efforts seem to be helping a lot.

This was a quick silliness, but if you really must have a print, far be it from me to stop you…

Wow, tricky habitat. If I remember right Jack Pines only propagate after a forest fire has cleared the area.

Even worse, they have to be young jack pines and at least 150 acres of them. It's a ridiculously specialized bird.

Given the reproductive needs of jack pines, Kirtland's Warblerbräu might want to be a rauchbier rather than an IPA.
