Warblerbrau Porter

You can’t drink just one! Or paint just one, either…


Now with correctly placed umlaut!

Prothonotary Warblers are endangered in Canada and in decline throughout the US. They are one of the only warblers to nest in tree cavities, and overwinter in mangrove swamps. Neither paint nor pixels can do justice to the color of the Prothonotary Warbler, which is a shocking, ecstatic yellow. They practically glow in the dark. It’s a thing.

They do not, to the best of my knowledge, wear fezzes in the wild.

Prints available, ‘cos y’know, why not?

Turn my back for just a moment ...

Love these.

You should get with Wil Wheaton and actually DO these bottles!

They should wear fezzes.
Fezzes are cool.

I actually have a friend in the midst of building up his own brewing company. He mostly makes honey rum and the like, but still, maybe there could be a potential partnership? You do his labels and he in turns donates part of the profits to bird conservation efforts? Not sure if you'd need to be paid specifically, but if you want I could ask him and get the two of you in contact? :D

Also, I think this looks great~! And fezzes are cool, fezzes are always cool. :)

Regent honeyeater? Helmeted honeyeater (a subspecies of Yellow-tufted honeyeater with a tufted head)?

(Australian. But awesome. And endangered.)

Ivorial Stout for the Ivory Billed Woodpecker? (look, even if they're goners, there's still a lot of benefit to habitat preservation)

My birding mentor, with whom I shared this, says:

I believe that the "Prothonotary ..." should be an ale or pale ale, not a porter.

Well, it could have been a pale ale, but I was goin' for alliteration, and someone requested a porter label...

This one is even cuter! There's something about fezzes, I think.

Oh. Dear. I may need to get all of these. And hang them in my kitchen, or near where I keep the brewing kit.

I'm seriously thinking about a set for my niece and her husband who are microbrew aficionados!

I love this! We have a similar looking bird in Poland. I would totally buy this beer and I second, third, and fourth all suggestions for making this a real beer.

Small request, can someone please help me with how I'm supposed to pronounce the name? I don't think I'm doing it right :/</p>

AWESOME! Hm. How to order prints in such a way that I can get 'em on the bottle.

Dark cherry porter, here we come!

*laugh* Honestly, it'd be easier just to send you a file and have you print 'em yourself on a sticker sheet or something.

"Hey Hon! You know that basement bar you want to have? I better get to help decorate!"

I'm less than half kidding. He's not going for man-cave, thank goodness, and I think these would appeal to his sense of the politely absurd. I envision cutting the print to the outline and laminating to a piece of wood for a bit of dimension. Must go ponder :D

My partner brews. I am joining the league of people who want to make these into labels for beer.
