Dubbel

It’s Thanksgiving Day in the United States today. The snow has fallen off and on all night and morning. Yesterday my wife picked up a few packs of our favourite ales. Despite not liking cold weather I’ve found a few creative ways to make use of the snow for the daily Photography 101 challenge.

I recently discovered the beers by Allagash Brewing in Portland, Maine. I was looking for a stout and saw the Black sitting on a shelf. Next to it was the White. Love them both but the White is my favourite. My wife picked up the Saison and Dubbel. The Dubble is what you see here.

Allagash Dubbel boasts a deep red color and a complex malty taste. The finish is dry with subtle hints of chocolate and nuts. The yeast asserts itself by lending a classic Belgian fruitiness.Allagash Brewing

This was a simple setup. The bottle was placed in some of the snow that had fallen on the rear deck of my home. I threw some dried up leaves from the backyard into the mix to add some balance to the photo. I think it works. What do you think?

The bottle was shot with the camera placed flat on the deck.

In response to Photography 101’s daily photo challenge: “Double”.
