Milwaukee, WI - AIGA Wisconsin and the Beer Barons of Milwaukee are pleased to announce the first ever Home Brewed beer and logo competition. The goal of this event is to pair local designers with local homebrewers to create custom craft beer logos.
Entries will be evaluated by a panel of celebrity judges. Winners will be announced at a final event happening Thursday, April 25th at Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery. Prizes will be awarded for best beer/logo coupling. Among the celebrity judges will be Chicago-based designer and homebrewer Randy Mosher. Mosher will also speak about his process of designing beer labels for Lakefront Brewery, Three Floyds, and others.
All designer/homebrewer teams are welcome to attend the final event, along with beer and design enthusiasts. Beer samples will be available for tasting, as well as a final presentation of the logos and packaging. Attendees will be able to cast their own votes for best beer-logo pairing.
