Title: where to buy brewing mural/posters?
Post by: passlaku on January 10, 2011, 09:42:02 PM
I really like the mural art at BJs Brewery and was wondering if anyone knew where similar prints may be purchased?



Here is one I found online:(http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5041/5329460230_0d9c6205d4_b.jpg)

I've been looking around and haven't found much.  I'd really like a grain color wheel like I have see at a few breweries, probably a promotional poster from Briess or another malting company. 

Probably not what you are looking for but there is a brewers formulary chart out there as well but it is only available as a high res download.  http://tophatbrewery.com/pics/Brewers%20Formulary%2024x36.jpg 

This sort of poster would be a great promotional tool for AHA, I bet there'd be a lot of demand for something like this.

Beerbooks.com has a lot of vintage pictures and advertising. Nothing that colorful.

Excuse me for saying this.

This kind of art reminds me "social realism".
People working in fields. everybody happy, celebration of people and work.
Farmers are already there. All I am missing is factory workers and smoking chimneys.

I dunno, I kinda like it. Of course, it would need to be done on stained glass and put in a bar where they have jitterbug competitions every night.

That is exactly right.  I like the "beery" twist on it. 

If you go to a BJ's this mural is either on the outside of the wall of the building or placed prominently inside.  I emailed them sometime ago and they said that they don't sell the prints.

It's always amused me just how much iconography in craft brewing is straight up borrowed from Soviet Agitprop and 1930's Great Depression WPA work. Guess it must be natural with the whole "beer revolution" meme.
