‘ART OF CRAFT BEER’ AT DCA PAIRS RAR BREWS WITH ORIGINAL CAN ART
Cambridge, Maryland, April 19, 2019 – The worlds of art and craft beer come together Friday, May 10 when the Dorchester Center for the Arts and RAR Brewing collaborate on a pop-up exhibit and tasting event to raise funds for the DCA and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of the Eastern Shore.
The event will be held at the DCA, 321 High Street in Downtown Cambridge, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. During the evening, guests will see how RAR’s creative process leads to the craft brewer’s distinct, and highly coveted, label and merchandise designs.
“The Art of Craft Beer” pairs six RAR brews with their individual label graphics displayed in four mediums: Framed original sketches and paintings by “RARtist” BJ Wheatley, wood carvings by Chapel Creek Custom’s Brian Wozny and photography by Jameson Harrington.
The featured beers and art for the evening are: Nanticoke Nectar (IPA), Pulpsicle (Pale Ale), Lumber Sexual (DIPA), Marylan (Blonde), Off the Rook (Pale) and Hyde (IPA).
Tickets, which include the tastings, music by guitarist Bobby Reed and the brewery’s sharable eats, are available now for advance purchase for $30 until April 30 and $35 from May 1-9 at the shopping cart on RAR’s website. Based on availability, tickets for $40 will be sold at the door.
During the evening, guests can bid on original RAR works by the three artists to support the DCA and cancer therapies.
“RAR signature label art fuses irreverent humor from coming of age on the Shore with a passion for creating stand-out beers,” said Program Chair and DCA Board Member Stephyn Butcher. “We’re pleased to co-host this memorable event on the eve of American Craft Beer week to attract a younger audience and expose them to local programs and activities we offer for experienced and aspiring artists.”
For those who are not able to attend, the “Art of Craft Beer” exhibit will remain on display at the DCA during Downtown Cambridge’s Second Saturday event on May 11.
