The latest issue of Pallet, a journal for people who like to think and drink, is available now. I’m very impressed with the quality of this magazine, and it features articles about everything from science to art to beer..well, mostly beer! And no surprise that’s where I come in. I was invited to contribute a beer label for this issue’s themed feature “Shakesbeer.” To quote the magazine:
He’s the greatest writer in the English language, but one honor yet to be bestowed upon William Shakespeare was for us to invite four breweries and artists from around the world to create an original recipe and label artwork inspired by one of his plays.
I was paired with Ommegang Brewery, but I’ll let the label tell you the rest…Cheers!

The Comic Book Story of Beer has received rave reviews and a place of honor on the New York Times Best Seller list. Now for some icing on the cake (or froth on the beer)…I’m happy to announce The Comic Book Story of Beer T-shirt! Just in time to diminish your holiday gift list before you even write it. Order shirts HERE. Maybe buy a couple to layer for the chilly months ahead, especially if you expect to spill beer on it. 😉
*Thanks to Portland’s own Modified Printing for featuring me as their December Artist-of-the-Month!

I just saw this, so I don’t know if still available, but I wanted to give my blog subscribers a crack at it: Free Pint Glass for the next ten people to preorder the book (U.S.A. addresses only). Good Luck!
