Introducing our latest collaboration with Henderson Brewing!

June 18, 2020

Our first ever online fair is just around the corner, and we cannot wait for you to engage and enjoy our virtual programming from the comfort of your own homes!

This year, we enter our 5th year of collaboration with Henderson Brewing Co. for another exciting Ides of July beer! This year's label (pictured above) is by TOAF emerging artist and Best of Student 2019 winner, Steven Restagno. For the month of July, look out for the limited-run Radicle Hopfenweisse, and grab a case from Henderson's brewery on Sterling Road, or order online (they deliver)! Enjoy the collectible label art, while you browse our curated collections through your devices.

I also wanted to update you on our Gifts of Heart campaign. To date, we have raised close to $18,000, and have started distributing gift cards to essential workers! We'd really love your help to reach our $100,000 goal in three weeks. We started this campaign as a meaningful way to support our artists as well as show thanks to those working on the front lines in health care and grocery stores. To learn more on how to donate to this initiative, please visit our website.

Stay tuned next week when we announce our full programming schedule. Until then, engage with us on social media, and check our website for daily updates.
 
 

The Beer Label

See what Steve Himel, co-founder and general manager of Henderson Brewing Co. has to say about this year's collaboration with TOAF:

“For the past few years, we have been working with TOAF and their Best of Student award winners to create a custom beer and label for the fair. It has been really exciting for us to be inspired by the different artists as well as to help get the art of an up-and-comer, literally into the hands of so many people.

The pandemic has changed the way it will work this year, but we are still making the beer and getting it out to the same number of people. Hopefully, it will entice them to check out Steven Restagno’s art as well as all the other artists in this year's online fair.”


These labels have become collectible items, so make sure to visit the brewery in July to get a bottle for your own collection!
