The Big Beers, Belgians & Barleywines Festival is held annually in Colorado, in early January. I started creating for the 2012 Big Beers Festival. Creating the annual theme and coordinated marketing and advertising pieces for Big Beers is one of my favorite projects! In late 2013 I redesigned the logo. In 2015 we added a yearly commemorative poster for the 15th anniversary. 2017 brought a move from Vail, Colorado (after 16 years) to Breckenridge, Colorado for the 17th Anniversary and Breckenridge has adopted us with open arms!

Distribution Insight for the Craft Brewer is a book written by Laura Lodge. This industry specific book helps craft breweries through the stages of distributing their product in other venues outside their establishment. Written in 2013, I was asked to create the cover art, design and layout the interior of the book and design the book updates and e-commerce website. We since added some book signing advertising.
