Beer Friday: Minibar Concept

The minibar definitely holds an interesting position in the hierarchy of home furnishings and has definitely been without some much deserved design attention for quite a while. Cecilie Manz collaborated with Danish furniture maker Rud Rasmussen in the design and fabrication of this concept for Wallpaper’s Handmade exhibition. Although the scale of it makes it slightly awkward calling it a minibar the resulting piece would be at home in any modern drinkers home.

Beer Friday: Mikkeller Running Club

I am still on a big health kick and part of my regimen has been running. So you can imagine how excited I was when I heard about the Mikkeller Running Club. The Copenhagen based brewer has so far launched chapters in London, Chicago, Brooklyn and many other cities around the world. Definitely sounds like my kind of running crew.

The club logo and ephemera were all designed by Keith Shore who also designs all the other visuals for Mikkeller including their well known labels. You can find a bunch of great gear and other cool knick knacks over in their shop.

“speed is not the main target in Mikkeller Running Club. Having fun and great social relations is our top priority and we´re just proud to see MRC members take part in races and events around the world.

Few would dispute the fact that exercise is good for your body, soul and general health. We believe that beer is too…”

Beer Friday: Happy 4th!

In our opinion there is no better way to celebrate the 4th of July than to tip back a few cold ones with family and friends and fire up the grill. We posted this awesome branding by Matthew Genitempo for a fictitious beer company a while back, but it’s so perfect to celebrate independence day. Wish we could cheers some America beers.

Beer Friday: Angel City Brewery

As the cold and gloom seems to just keep dragging on we are escaping to the more pleasant climes of the West Coast. In honor of this little journey I thought for Beer Friday this week it only made sense to feature something California related. Luckily I recently heard about Angel City Brewery and their mission to revitalize the old Eastside Brewery. Los Angeles is rarely on anyone’s mind when they think of the craft beer movement that is speckled across the Western edge of the country. With a space historically built for brewing and a vibrant nod to that past ACB looks like it is poised to make a nice change in the suds scene in LA. Excited to go an check it out on this visit.

Beer Friday: Garage Beer Co.

After visiting Barcelona in February I am so disappointed I didn’t get to check out Garage Beer Co. It seems like they are only getting up to steam now and are still operating out of what looks like a really awesome garage. Craft beer and micro-brewing is yet to catch on in Europe the way it has in the US. It is always nice to see someone taking the risk. Their straightforward branding and the associations of the name are really spot on. Hopefully I will make over their again before too long and will get to taste their carpark creations. Happy Beer Friday and cheers!

Beer Friday: Coors Cans

A little beer history for you on this lovely Friday. The design for these commemorative cans was carried out by San Francisco based Landor Associates.

“From its origin as the beverage of choice at Colorado miner banquets to its high-quality ingredients, Coors Banquet is the one and only beer that exemplifies the legendary timeless western spirit. The Banquet Beer celebrates its rich heritage with the limited release of three special edition pint designs, each commemorating an iconic symbol that has made Coors Banquet The Legend Since 1873.”

Beer Friday: Mr. Pineapple

A little hiatus from beer and an even longer break from posting has come to an end. Also as the cold weather sets in we in Northeast have begun dreaming of warmer sun dappled climes. In that spirit this week we raise a glass, or can, of Mr. Pineapple from SanTan Brewing in Arizona for all of those folks stuck in the frigid regions. The playful color palette and can design of MR. P is that exact type of vibrance that helps us get through darker shorter days.

Beer Friday: The Marlton Hotel Bar

Here in New York over the past few years we have seen a large shift back to the grand hotels of the past. Places like the recently opened The Marlton Hotel fit into this category and in addition to adding beautiful accommodations to the texture of the city they bring a wonderful hospitality too. The lobby, restaurant and most importantly the bar are wonderful places to pause and catch a bit of relaxation or have a casual meeting. Whether you have just in Manhattan or if you simply find yourself looking for a good place to grab a beverage in the West Village I highly recommend stopping by The Marlton Hotel.

Beer Friday: Volga Beer

Well lets clink some glass because its f’ing Friday. No need for a flashback. I am more in the mood for a blur forward. So lets all raise a bottle, glass, tumbler or any type of vessel your dram is best enjoyed from. Here is an awesome set of bottle designs by the always inspiring Jon Contino for Volga Beer.

Beer Friday: Field Notes “Drink Local”

Well we love jotting down notes and ideas, and of course we like eating and drinking local. So the “Drink Local Series” from Field Notes is a brainer for us. Head over to their site and get your own. If there are any left. Depending on your preference of drink and color they come in quite a few different combinations like Ale and Lager, Amber Ale and India Pale Ale, and my favorite Pilsner and Bock. Grab your preferred writing implement, a pack of these and hunker down for a few rounds at your local watering hole of choice. Also make sure to order something brewed or distilled less than 25 miles away.

Beer Friday: Beer Press

My mom has always collected things, which included matchbooks, postcards, coasters and a bunch of other far more mundane things. So I definitely inherited an appreciation for a well designed coaster.

This new Kickstarter project launched by Jordan Mummert plans to produce a small line of coasters(6 to begin with) called Beer Press, which features distinct and beautiful letter-pressed designs. The typography and copy on each and every one is really smart and clean with a nice level of intricacy, which highlights the care and quality with which they are printed.

Beer Friday: Church of the Atom

Church of the Atom is a Gothernburg, Sweden based brewery which was conceived at the hands of master-brewer and a creative director. That may sound like an odd couple to some people, but in the beer realm it is exactly the type of team you need. They subscribe to a “nanostyle” approach to brewing and their releases are named curiosity, insanity, progression, craft and humor. Their beers feature interesting and unique flavors not frequently associated with beer which include tropical fruit, fresh herbs, spicy things and even smoked berries. Unfortunately for us this beer doesn’t seem to be imported to the states yet, but keep your eyes peeled. Good things have a tendency to get here sooner or later.

Beer Friday: Prescription Pilsner

I have been taking a break from drinking for a while now, so posting things for Beer Friday seems a little humorous. In the light of that I thought this cheeky beer packaging concept designed by Peter Jostrand would make a perfect post. Prescription Beer builds in strength as the week progresses leading towards Sunday the day of rest.

Beer Friday: Elysian Beer Festival

Summer is the season of beer festivals. Maybe its refreshing feel of those cold suds on a blistering day or maybe its just the best time of year to surround your self with great people and taste some delicious brews. I am super keen on the identity Maddison Graphic designed for the Elysian Beer Festival in Cambridgeshire, UK.

Beer Friday: Kernel Brewery in London

Ever wonder what the inside of a small batch microbrewery looks like? Well here’s your chance. The Evening Brews, an awesome English beer blog has shot this rad little behind the scenes clip at London’s Kernel Brewery. Visiting a brewery is always a great experience especially in the summer. Escaping the sweltering heat in a nice cool warehouse with some refreshing cold ones.

Beer Friday: Longadalsa

We should all hope that the weather this weekend cooperates so we can all enjoy a nice fresh Longadalsa white ale, or something similar. Let’s all raise a glass to Nicolai Bashkirev and his inventive packaging design for this beer.

Beer Friday: Solemn Oath Brewer

Michael Kiser of Good Beer Hunting talks about and shares with us some great shots of the holistic process behind the beer at Solemn Oath Brewery in Naperville, Illinois. Similar to any other craft manufacturer or skilled laborer with a focus on the end product, the folks at SOB are focussed on each element of the process, from the ingredients they use, to the bar top in their tap-room, and on to the logo their beers wear out into the world. This video was made for Issue 1 of Apartment Number 9†, a new editorial project by the Chicago based menswear shop.

Beer Friday: Sav Snaps & Sav Sparkling

Swedish Sav Snaps and Sav Sparkling are two birch based libations, the first is a distilled liquor made through a process of distilling the sap and the second is a sparkling birch based wine. The recipes were sourced from historic archives from the 1700s and embody the vibrance and illustrious past of spirits making in Sweden. The bottles and packaging design for Sav was completed by Swedish studio Stockholm Design Lab.

Beer Friday: Kashiwa Sato for Kirin

Designer Kashiwa Sato is a well renowned Japenese graphic design who has worked for brand such as 7 Eleven, Honda, Olympus and tons more. Sato is best known for his work for the clothing brand and stores Uniqlo, which originated in Japan. I recently found the Source Series, which is a project by Korean designer Wang Zhi Hong documenting the work of great designers. Of course the pieces of work that caught my eye the most were Sato’s work for Japanese brewery Kirin.

Whenever I go out for Soba, Udon, or Sushi, Kirin is definitely one of my favorite accompaniments to the meal. Their beers are always fresh and crisp with a clean finish. Sato’s work for them fits a similar and very Japanese style. He channels an amazing amount of clean grid based design while hinting at some classic Japanese motifs and design elements. While the can designs he created are rigid and minimalist to a fault some of his print collateral balances that with a more chaotic and wild approach.

Beer Friday: Matthew LaFleur

Matthew LaFleur is an insanely talented illustrator and also happens to have quite a knack for home-brewing. Each individual batch of his creatively crafted suds dons a label which he has made especially for that selection. Ranging from growlers and large jars of thick stout to funky recycled glass bottles of ale all of his illustrations attempt to embody both the contents inside and his own style of drawing.
