1 Beer • 1 Name • 4 designs
The concept behind the Designer Series blossomed from the creative minds at Variant, a design studio located in Bellingham, with the purpose of showcasing multiple artists within a single beer. Thus, the theme of Fractured Universe emerged and four prominent West Coast graphic artists were tasked with creating their own original label. The rest was in their hands! This brand new series is a collaboration with Variant and Juxt Taphouse and our first ever canned fresh hop beer featuring a Citra fresh hop IPA. Below you can see each unique label of Fractured Universe, read about the artists and the other work they create.
