With last years barrel gang we tested the waters, but here is the real barrel gang project!

Barrel Gang is a 4 year project based around the four elements of beer Water, Yeast, Grain & Hops, bringing together of our 2 favourite things beer & art.

Each year we will release a beer that showcases the 4 elements of beer, this will be accompanied by a A4 signed artist lino print based on these elements.

For example

  • Water ~ sea life
  • Yeast/Air ~ Birds
  • Grain ~ Mammal
  • Hops ~ Insects

 Beer / art example over a year 

  • Apricot flower yeast & Apricot fruited sour ~ Orchard Oriole
  • Hay Beer ~ Barn Cat
  • Hoppy table beer ~ Hops Azure butterfly
  • Kelp Black lichtenhainer ~ Midnight Zone sea creatures

At the end of the 4 years these Art prints will form the suits of a deck of cards

For example suits for Yeast 

 Yeast / Air

  • Apricot flower yeast & Apricot fruited sour ~ Orchard Oriole (Ace)
  • Braggot, with honey bee yeast, banksia honey ~ honey eater (Queen)
  • Sake, persimmons, Japanese – King fisher (King)
  • Grapefruit Nettles, Weeds ~ Rooster (Jack)

Each year the barrel gang membership will be accompanied by a etched Denver & liely beer glass with one of the 4 elements.
