Hoppy Birthday Tate Modern
World famous contemporary art gallery Tate Modern celebrates its 10th Birthday on the banks of the Thames this week. In true Tate Modern style they’ve shunned the Champagne and instead will be toasting the decade with a drop of the Dog.
BrewDog have created an exclusive special release beer to mark the occasion. A 5.6 Blonde Belgian Saison brewed with spices and infused with vanilla beans. This deliciously complex beer is best served in a former Power Station–turned Art Gallery amidst a gaggle of partying Art lovers.
A beer for such an aesthetically tuned audience needed to look the part, so Bracken commissioned BrewDog’s on-call designer Johanna Basford to create a hand printed label. Available in both black on white and white on black, she spent a week in her studio silk screen printing all the labels for the 375ml corked champagne bottles and a handful of posters. Beer inspired art, for art inspired beer.
Just 4,000 bottles of this artistic birthday brew were created and they are available exclusively from Tate Modern. We've also sent down a few kegs, as we all know every good party involves a keg from a canine. Get your paws on some by heading down there from May the 14th … don’t forget your party hat.
**UPDATE** Get your paws on the kegged Tate Modern beer exclusively at The Rake, Borough Market.
