The Art of Beermaking with Bissell Brothers Brewing Company

The Art of Beermaking with Bissell Brothers Brewing Company

If you’ve been to the beer aisle at the grocer’s recently, you’ve seen a whole gallery worth of eclectic art and design on the cans and labels. But who are the artists that create this colorful work for these breweries? Bissell Brothers Brewing invites PMA Contemporaries to their tasting room on Thompson’s Point to meet some of the artists who have created the work shown on their cans, tasting room, and promotional materials. Naturally, you’ll also be encouraged to sample the latest and finest beers on tap, and Locally Sauced will be on hand to offer light fare. The PMA Contemporaries and Bissell Brothers Brewing is an exquisite pairing you’ll find only in Portland, and we hope you’ll join us for this special event.
