About The Lost Abbey Ultimate Box Set
The Lost Abbey Ultimate Box set includes 13 special edition brews (aka: “Tracks” 1 through 13), a custom-designed album sleeve with the full-sized art used on each of the beer labels and liner notes from the brewers — all packaged in hand-built, numbered metal road cases. The Box Set case and album sleeve were designed by Grammy® award-winning art director Matt Taylor of Varnish Studio in collaboration with John Schulz of StudioSchulz. Each of the Sets had a retail value of $450 and was not available to the general public nor is it available for purchase. The Lost Abbey Ultimate Box Set was the recipient of the 2012 Bev Star “Most Innovative Packaging” from the Beverage World Publication. Track 8 also received a Bronze Medal (Experimental Beer) at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival and came in 2nd place for Best of Show for the 2012 FoBAB Awards in Chicago.
