DOWNINGTOWN, PA — Victory Brewing Company and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are pleased to announce their plans to co-host a non-traditional art exhibit to celebrate the artistry of craft beer during the 2013 Craft Brewer’s Conference.
On March 28th 2013 at the District Architecture Center in Washington D.C., 25 American breweries will share their beer and display a piece of commissioned art. Event attendees will experience art in its standard form (paintings, sculptures, etc.) as well as in its liquid form, beer. All of the beers being served will be amber in color, looking nearly identical while being vastly diverse in flavor.
A truly special component to this event that will draw crowds is each brewery is must accompany their liquid art with a visual piece that represents their brand/brewery. Whether it is something currently displayed on their home turf or a piece they have commissioned for the event, each brewery is encouraged to donate their companion art piece to the silent auction benefiting wounded military personnel through The Fallen Heroes Fund.
“ I have always believed that brewing is an art form,” said Victory Brewing Company President and Brewmaster Bill Covaleski. “By pairing American-crafted beers with visual art we hope to expose a larger audience to the art of flavor.”

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Dogfish Head opened as the smallest commercial brewery in America in 1995 brewing in ten-gallon batches on a glorified-modified homebrew system. Even then, our mission was to bring off-centered ales to off-centered people. Our belief was (and still is) that beer can have as much flavor, complexity, diversity, food-compatibility, and age-ability as the world’s finest wines. We have never wavered from this belief. So. We’re a little less small now.
