Illustration for Brewery Collaboration Launch

Posted on July 23, 2013 by Phil Thompson | 0 comments

South Loop Brewing Company and Lake Effect Brewing Company collaborated on two beers and commissioned us for the launch illustration. Launch takes place on Wed, July 24 at 6PM, Weathermark Tavern. Here’s more about the beers, which sound great to me:

The collaboration will actually result in two beers (from the same mash) and is inspired by the ancient weather forecasting lore/saying, “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky at morning, Sailor’s warning.” The stronger, first runnings from the mash are aggressively hopped during boil for “Sailor’s Warning.” Think tropical/citrusy/bitter Imperial Red. The slightly-less-potent, second runnings from the very same mash are then run into another kettle, where we boil, bitter cleanly and later, spike with a touch of vanilla for an incredibly refreshing, more-sessionable “Sailor’s Delight.”
