Beautiful Distraction IPA
Wanna hear a fun story? Ok, here it goes. We were doom scrolling early in 2022 and came across Joey Veltkamp’s work – a Bremerton based artist whose medium is quilts, often with bright colors and scenic and/or cheeky vibes. His work is inviting, impressive, and downright joy-inducing – and the humble vehicle of the quilt really resonated with us. And so, we reached out to Joey to see if he’d be down for a project – to design a beer can label, and to choose a local charity that we could donate the profits of this beer to. And after some brainstorming, and a little break (Joey was in the midst of putting the finishing touches on his current exhibit at the Bellevue Art Museum), a beautiful quilt and beer label was created! As for the charity of choice, we will be donating the profit from this beer to the Lavender Rights Project – a Seattle based organization that offers financial, legal and social services to the black and indigenous intersex and gender diverse community. Oh also – the beer! It was hopped with a bright, refreshing, citrus forward hop bill of Citra, Comet, & Motueka laid over a lighter grist of 2 row, Pils, & Spelt.
