If you’re feeling a little in touch with your artistic side after a few Sweet Actions, you’re not the only one. Presumably because the last call for artist submissions for the Red Hook brewery was a huge success, Sixpoint Craft Ales is again summoning would-be beer culture experts to create inspired posters and upload them to the brewery’s Facebook page (the winner will be chosen by “Likes”). The theme is “Beer is Culture”, and any medium is acceptable, so all you mixed-media mavens, rejoice! Six finalists will win gift baskets with customized apparel, goodies from Sixpoint and other local artisans and (to emphasize the “culture”) a free year-long membership to a local art museum of their choosing.
Your artful beer-related submissions will be accepted until April 30. Six finalists will be announced on May 1. An overall winner will be announced May 7, and receive all of the above as well as their artwork displayed prominently on Six Point’s Facebook page, a front-page interview on the website, and free beer.
