My name is Eric Steen, I’m a homebrewer, beer writer, and beer-event organizer based in Colorado. I’m asked by galleries, musuems, and festivals around the country to put together unique beer programs that feature beer as a type of art. I’ve been invited by the internationally renowned Performa Festival to do something in NYC in November. I’ll be creating a type of pop-up pub that serves homebrewed beer to the public, basically a speakeasy bar featuring local homebrewers. If you or any homebrewing are interested in being a part of these, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am collecting a list of interested homebrewers and will send more information shortly.
A little more about me: I have worked with numbers of breweries and homebrewers in Oregon, Colorado, Michigan, Missouri, and Scotland. Some of the project I’ve put together include: the annual Art & Beer, Glasgow Pub Project, Beers Made By Walking, Boulevard Beer Portraits, and others. I’ve worked with organization including the Portland Art Museum, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art, and breweries including Boulevard, Laurelwood, Hopworks, Williams Bros, Upright and currently working with Ska, Odell, Oakshire, and many others.
If you or anyone has any questions I’d be happy to tell you more via email about what I do and what I’m planning for NYC."
Dear devotees of the locally micro-brewed,
This Sunday Earl’s, one of my favorite craft-beer pubs, will be hosting a SingleCut Beersmiths Event from 2-5. I’ll be behind the bar serving the customary wide-range of styles and there will also be a host of fine cheeses to munch on.
The address: 1259 Park Ave, between 97th & 98th St.
I’ll be looking for your input as to which three of the beers you’ll be trying should be the brewery’s first offerings.
And for those of you who don’t yet know how to treat your dad for Father’s Day, problem solved!"
