Popular British beer

Sometimes, having a simple conversation over a drink can spark an idea for an illustration. That’s exactly what happened when I asked my husband why he prefers IPA over any other type of beer.

And he said that’s not exclusively what he drinks, and he also enjoys a good lager, or stout (particularly Guinness) and other beers too.

Which then, of course, led to an enumeration of the kinds of beers and what he likes to drink at pubs. It was rather interesting because, thanks to health issues, I haven’t had a glass of beer in more than ten years, so my knowledge was sadly lacking.

And after that, of course I had to draw some beer! And this is the result! It definitely made me want to have a tall cold glass of beer, sadly not a temptation I can give in to.

It’s not the first time I’ve drawn beer, the last was a greeting card with lager and stout, but this one has a deeper understanding of what beer is for sure!

What is your favourite beer? Or any other alcohol for that matter? You know, I might draw it!
