Beer Bokeh (Beerkeh)

(a post from the spring)

After weeks of hot weather and drought you get thirsty. What do you do when you get thirsty, you walk to the nearest brewery. 

 

Last year two new breweries opened around the corner here in Port Moody, BC. Moody Ales andYellow Dog Brewing which we visited today. I brought my camera, because I've been inspired by a local photographer whom I am following on Instagram, Dennis The Foodie. Daily he posts incredible photos of even more increadible food and more importantly, Craft Beer!

The walk is always good to the breweries in town and today it was even better; it is blackberry season! Thank mother nature that those damn blackberry bushes are so resistant, even a two month drought isn't going to mess with them. After we picked a few fingerlicking blackberries we arrived at Yellow Dog.

The misses ordered a flight with a IPA, Smoked Porter, India Sessions Belgium Ale and a Saison, I ordered the 20oz of the Saison. I ordered the Saison as neighbour Moody Ales brews a killer Matcha Saison, but unfortunately we werent impressed with Yellow Dog's Abricot Saison. Second round I went with 'just' the Pale Ale. Beautiful beer, that did it for me! Nice smooth and full flavours. 

Dailed my 50mm all the way open to 1.8, blow up that background and match that silky smootheness with the silky smoothness of the beer. In post I added a nice vignette and dailed down on the saturation in the background to emphasize on the star of the day. Here you go:
