November 10, 2015 | The Rare Barrel
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first ever Rare Arts Fair! While we often say that brewing is using the science of biology to create art (beer), we want to also acknowledge that beer itself inspires art. On Saturday, November 21st from 2PM – 6PM at our Tasting Room, local artists will be displaying and selling their one-of-kind pieces inspired by the creation and enjoyment of beer. Check out the details below along with what each artist has created and will be selling.

When | Saturday, November 21st from 2PM through 6PM
Where | The Rare Barrel Tasting Room
Upcycled Wine Barrel Staves by Al Wallash | These oak barrel staves were coaxed to form naturally wine-stained bowls, curvaceous candle arches, distinctive coat/towel hangers, and beer-related signs. Each piece is unique, with its own natural markings that are enhanced by stain and finish. These organic pieces will bring the wonder of barrel-aged beer and wine into your home.
Jewelry and Trinkets by JoAnn Wallash | JoAnn uses colorful beads and engraved metal pieces to create beautiful accessories and household items. She has a passion for crafting earrings, bracelets, and necklaces but also enjoys making bottle openers, bottle stoppers, and cheese knives.
Hop Life Prints by Scott Moskowitz | Hops enjoy life as much as humans do. From lounging pool side to taking up boxing as a hobby, Scott Moskowitz captures these moments of hops living life every day and depicts them on paintings, prints, and shirts.
Glass Sculptures and Ornaments by Mitch LaPlante | Mitch LaPlante makes colorful, realistic blown glass fruit and vegetable sculptures in large scale. Maraschino, Bing, and Rainier are popular varieties of cherries Mitch draws inspiration from and these sculptures reach almost 3 feet tall. He also makes ornaments in a variety of colors and shapes to hang on your holiday tree.
Ceramic Beer Mugs by Michael Salo | These hand made high fired ceramic mugs may be used to hold any beverage but are longing for some beer in them. Michael Salo has hand crafted each beer mug to be unique, all varying in size and color.
Hand Drawn Designs and Characters by Nicolas Fullmer | Nicolas Fullmer is a San Francisco-based illustrator and craft beer enthusiast who has made a name for himself with his unique hand-drawn designs and inventive characters. He is best known for being the artist for Faction Brewing and Cellarmaker Brewing as well as his complete artistic makeover of the 80-year-old globally recognized Trader Vic's brand. Clients in the world of beer have included Societe Brewing, City Beer Store, Hog’s Apothecary, Social Kitchen & Brewery, The Good Hop, Marin Brewing, Alpha Acid Brewing, Simply Hops (UK), Shady Oaks Barrel House, and more.
Made-to-Order Watermelon Forces | Forces Unseen showcases notes of sweet pineapple with a tart lemon acidity. We found that these flavors are a great compliment to fresh watermelon juice. Made-to-order, make sure to ask your bartender for a glass of this unique and refreshing blend while supplies last.
Artist Payment | All artists will be selling products direct to consumer. Acceptable forms of payment to artists will be cash only. Even though The Rare Barrel is hosting this event we will not be able take transactions on behalf of the artists.
We hope to see you all out here supporting the local artist community and possibly seeing art in new forms and places.
