Shelton, CT, June 6, 2018– We here at The 16oz. Canvas are happy to announce our seventh 12-pack of artists today. Each week we introduce our audience to artists, designers and illustrators from around the world that help bring our favorite beers and breweries to life. Each week is an exciting introspective into an important but niche piece of the industry. The beauty of this project is not only do we learn about their process, but their stories of hard work and entrepreneurship that inspires so many.
It is with great pride and excitement that we announce The Art of Craft Beer show coming this summer to New Haven, CT. The show will run from July 14th through the 29th. Our events will be hosted at the famed Kehler Liddell Gallery and bring The 16oz. Canvas - the Art of Craft Beer podcast to life by showcasing many of our great guests from the past.
These are the artists and designers who help bring our favorite beers and breweries to life. Over this two week installation we will have unique opportunities to engage with the space and experience their art and passion in 3-D. You will have the opportunity to meet many of these artists at our opening night event as well as enjoy live music and enjoy craft beer together over the run.
We are also very proud to announce that we are working with the CT ASRC (Autism Services and Resources Connecticut). Proceeds from this event will go to this amazing non-profit that has helped so many including my own family.

Aluminum cans were once the domain of mass-market brews, the kind of bland, economy lagers bought by the case. But over the last decade, brewers have embraced the can, filling the once-maligned vessels with juicy and aromatic IPAs, tingly sours, and barrel-aged stouts. Cans have gone from objects of derision to desire, fueled by both the liquid and the labels. Designers, illustrators, and artists have turned these aluminum canvases into handheld works of art, a rare analog experience in a digital era.
Instead of bottles, we’re palming cans, Instagram-age billboards that telegraph a brewery’s philosophy and set it apart. A few decades ago, simply making more flavorful beer was a big enough point of differentiation. Now that good beer is sold everywhere—at gas stations, sports bars, and four-star restaurants— brewers need to consider the whole package, nailing both the formula and branding alike. The best labels look as good as the beer tastes. Here are 30 of the best canned-beer designs available in America.
