Fall Beer Tasting Success

18 Oct

Beer is wonderful. We here at Artists Circle are well aware of that simple truth, and more importantly we’re aware that most other people are aware of it, as well. What better choice, then, for an Artists Circle gallery event than a beer tasting? As the weather turns chilly, beers start to get heartier and more flavorful, which makes for a winning combination in our barn’s gallery space. Here at Artists Circle, we often try to come up with art solutions that dig a little deeper than the status quo for our clients, so we thought we’d apply the same philosophy for our fall beer tasting.

Since we do so much work with local artists, we decided that we’d scrap the idea of focusing on imported beers or well-known American craft brews and instead put local (or local-ish) treasures in the spotlight. The tasting featured beers by:

Stoudt’s Brewing (Adamstown, PA)
Flying Dog Ales (Frederick, MD)
Old Dominion (Dover, DE)
Baying Hound Aleworks (Rockville, MD)
Dogfish Head (Milton, DE)
Heavy Seas (Halethorpe, MD)
Port City Brewing (Alexandria, VA)

The beer was a big hit, especially Baying Hound’s Long Snout Stout and Heavy Seas’ Loose Cannon IPA. Artists, clients and friends alike had a wonderful time imbibing the beers we selected and viewing the art on display here at the gallery, and we had a fantastic time talking with our guests about art and beer. We thought the event was a great success and look forward to the next iteration of the Artists Circle Beer Tasting.
