Animal Beers

Breck makes me so proud sometimes. We were riding on the bus to school, when he started pointing out the window at a poster and said, “Look dad – Tiger beer!” We admired the picture of the tiger for a while, and then he said, “You know, there sure are a lot of beers named after animals here in India. There’s Tiger, and Cobra, and Kingfisher, and even Foster’s.” I told him I understood all the others (Kingfisher is a type of bird), but was not sure why he thought Foster’s was an animal beer. “Because of the little kangaroo on it,” was his response. Ah yes, my son, the zoologist.

He did get me to thinking, however, about the beers that I’ve had which are named after animals (or birds, as the case may be). Here’s what I could come up with, keeping in mind that A) they had to beers I’ve actually had; B) they are beers I remembered that I had; C) they have an animal in the name (with one exception as noted above); and D) I didn’t really have to think too hard to come up with this list:

I might add to this list as I remember more (but probably not).

  3. I was going to include Grizzly Growlers, which I’ve had in Missoula on a number of occasions, but I’m not really sure if that was the name of the beer itself. Loved the St. Pauli Girl rationale for inclusion; using the same logic makes me hesitate to include Stella Artois, given my mom’s name!!

  4. Ooo, Stella is a good beer. As far as its inclusion on an animal list, though, I’m with Dave.
