Featured on Upcoming Episodes of the 16oz. Canvas

Shelton, CT, November 14, 2017– The 16oz. Canvas is happy to share with you our next round of amazingly talented artists from around the world as part of our fourth 12-pack. Each week that we are able to share this passion project with you is special. I know that we say it often but that week is more episodes than we thought possible here at the canvas. This latest 12-pack is no different as it brings together some impressive talent from around the country.  Hosted by AJ Keirans, the goal each week is to introduce you to the artists who bring your favorite beers and breweries to life through their aesthetic, design and creative expression. The project officially launched on April 7th of of this year in conjunction with National Beer Day and continues to grow in popularity each week. Each episode features a standard shell of questions that are used as the jumping off point to learn more about each artist’s path, life and process. It is an intimate opportunity to learn more about your favorite beers and how the style and design outside of the can comes to reality.

What started off as a brainstorm, rough sketch and a dream almost a year ago has evolved into a dedicated effort to showcase the amazingly talented individuals that are an integral part of the Craft Beer Industry. From stories of hard work and dedication to becoming an artrepeneur, the 16oz. Canvas has something for aspiring artists and designers alike as well as those who are looking to take their business and efforts to the next level. This project is a beer agnostic one, so while there will be times that we feature some of our favorite breweries from around the globe, our focus here is on art, design and process to showcase each pen or brush stroke that make these designs possible.  Our hope is that the beer is just as good as the art, but we all know that isn’t always be the case and we’re OK with that.

The podcast will launch its 35th episode this week featuring Karl Grandin of Omnipollo on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, TuneIn and many other sites where your favorite podcasts are enjoyed. This project is an evolving one that is looking for ways to bring the podcast to life and to the masses one week at a time. The team continues to research and connect with the artists and designers around the country who are responsible for these impressive designs and themes.  Their stories and adventures are unique and inspiring while giving a glimpse into their personality and creative process. Whether you’re a beer snob, art lover, entrepreneur or podcast addict, this project has something for everyone. Also a podcast fun fact - host AJ Keirans turn 39 this week on Saturday November 18th - please wish him a Happy Birthday.
