“LOVE AUSTIN BEER” is a new print series honoring iconic Austin beers illustrated by poster artist & Bitch Beer contributor Jessica Deahl. The gallery show, hosted at Studium, will feature 10 different prints, each illustrated by Jessica to capture the spirit of 10 craft beers brewed right here in Austin. The prints will function as an eye-catching, harmonious set that attendees will be able to view at this one-night-only event, and purchase prints to take home or give as holiday gifts at an affordable price!
Each poster will be printed in a limited edition of 50, and will be hand numbered and signed. There will be a discount available for those who wish to purchase a matching numbered 10 print set. So, come early to snag prints of your favorite beers while supplies last! Some of the brewers themselves will also be in house, so ask nicely and you may just get your prints signed by them as well.
Complimentary beer for the gallery show will be provided by Austin Beerworks while supplies lasts. Special local tappings will also be available for purchase next door at Wright Bros. Brew and Brew just for this event.
We’ll be releasing some of the artwork in the days leading up to the show, so make sure to watch the Facebook Event Page for sneak peeks!
IT’S TIME TO LET THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG…..Kind of.
We’ve organized this art show as a way to raise funds because Jessica, Sarah and I (Caroline) are going to be embarking on a really exciting journey next Spring. We’ll be traveling from the United States to Europe next year to visit a host of breweries for an upcoming beer travel book for which we recently got the green light from a terrific publishing company. Needless to say, we’ll be able to talk more about this closer to when the book actually comes out, and while we’re over there we’ll also be gathering content for Bitch Beer.
We are so, so excited to make this dream a reality, but because this isn’t a juicy celebrity tell-all or the latest Stephen King novel, it’s up to us to finance the travel expenses we’ll incur to write this book. This predicament spawned the Love Austin Beer print series, and it’s something we’re really proud of all on its own. Who knows, with so many great beers being brewed in Austin, the series could grow from here. We’re incredibly grateful to the Austin breweries featured in this show for their outpouring of support, and hope all of you dig Love Austin Beer!
