Dark Summer for Warped Wing Brewery

Just as every artwork can not be a masterpiece, the same goes for every brewed creation. This was a design I did for Warped Wing Brewery for a beer that retired prematurely this past summer. Before it left the building, we were able to get our hands on a growler of it to use as a marinade on some beef and tofu…YUM!
