Founders Brewing Company (Grand Rapids, MI) teamed up earlier this year with ArtPrize to be the official brewery sponsor. ArtPrize is an open art contest based in Founders hometown. That’s where this beer, and label come into play. For this year’s competition, Founders is debuting Inspired Artist Black IPA that comes with a very special label.
The artwork first – is Kevin O’Rourke. His artwork has been featured on concert posters for Sonic Youth & Flaming Lips. The beer? A black IPA. Inspired Artist Black IPA is brewed with black wheat malt and of course a ton of complimentary hops. Look for the debut across Michigan in August. Lovers of craft beer and art can look forward a one of these releases each year.
