One thing that we have learned from Beer Week is that there is a lot going on. With so many awesome events from so many awesome bars going on for Beer Week we decided to just have fun with it and to try and come up with something truly unique. Considering how involved Arnold’s is with art and with beer we decided to mix the creativity of the brewers with the creativity of an artist. This is our third straight year of mixing artist and breweries and it get better every year.
We convinced five breweries to commission some of the best artists and graphic designers in Cincinnati to re-imagine one of their beers as a brand new work of art. From that work the artists will create a limited edition of 50, signed and numbered hand pulled Screen Print from it.
