Bound for Brewbound
Brewbound is a new beer tourism company created by microbrewery supporters Joshua Pratt and Matt Kennedy. They load up a bus-full of people and travel from brewery to brewery experiencing the greatness that is craft beer. Matt, a graphic designer, came up with the logo you see on the left.
For Brewbound's maiden voyage, which took place on March 13, 2010, Josh and Matt wanted to do something special for attendees. I have access to a laser engraver (yes an actual laser!) and suggested making customized cork coasters with the BB logo and trip info. This BB trip was to Portland, ME and Jeff Rowe, a Boston-based artist came along to play a few songs at each brewery. The coasters were a hit! The image on the right is an example of what the final coaster looked like. Pretty neat eh? And because the image is burned on, the coasters smell like campfire!
Check out pictures and footage from the first ever Brewbound adventure at brewbound.com or on facebook. If you'd like to order some custom cork coasters, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
