The Carhartt Woodsman Tour

On Wednesday, September 16th, I will be hitting the road for the start of The Carhartt Woodsman Tour with New Holland Brewing and Carhartt. This is the second year we’re going on tour together and I can’t wait to see how this one shapes up!

I’ll be traveling with a few friends from the previous tour, The Beervangelist Fred Bueltmann, Drew Nelson, Nicolas Barron, and Laith Al-Saadi, as well as a bunch of new (to the tour) folks that I’ll meet once I get to Holland, MI on Wednesday night.

We’ll blast off on September 17th to Empire, MI, where we’ll start a series of shows and campfire get-togethers, all leading up to The Great American Beer Fest  in Denver, CO.

At every stop I’ll be painting with beer. This year I’m planning on doing a few different and exciting things, so make sure you come out and see what’s up!

A busy month of media and travel Pt. 1

Wow! This last month has been intense! I've been traveling every weekend for the past four weeks, working on freelance gigs, doing interviews with various websites from across the world and trying keep up with all things Beer Portraits. Whew!

Hatter Days in Holland Michigan was a blast as usual. New Holland opened a fantastic new store next door to the pub called Sidecar. The store is packed with tons of great merchandise. They have pretty much anything you might want: shirts, hats, beer, candles, soaps, bottle openers, etc.

The people were great, the bands were fantastic, and the food and beer was incredibly tasty. We even lucked out with great weather once again.

A big thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hi, buy art or just to get something signed. New Holland fans are some of my favorite people. They are always enthusiastic about not just the beer but the labels we put on them.
