In April 2013 we inked a deal with ArtPrize that made us the official brewery of the competition for the next five years. The premier leadership sponsorship deal included offering our beer at all official ArtPrize events, signage, promotion, merchandise, specialized glassware and other items. It also included permission for us to use the ArtPrize identity marks (logo and graphics) on any co-packaged items, including beer. We plan to release a new beer for each year of our five-year partnership with ArtPrize under the name “Artist Series”. This is year two. Last year’s release was Inspired Artist Black IPA. “Making a unique beer in honor of ArtPrize has become a fun challenge for our brewers,” said Dave Engbers, our co-founder and vice president of brand and education. “This year’s release just fell into place. Ninkasi—a stained glass ArtPrize submission that showed in our taproom last year—became a permanent part of our taproom when we purchased it last year. We knew right away that it would make a perfect label for Mosaic Promise, a beautifully simple beer that we had been experimenting with for some time.” Mosaic Promise showcases a single malt—Golden Promise—and a single hop—Mosaic. The traditional barley’s depth of flavor and the versatility of the hops’ bittering, flavor and aroma characteristics are the strong pillars that comprise the structure of this clean, rich, golden beer. We can brew complex beers with the best of them, but we recognize that there’s also beauty in simplicity. Proceeds from the sale of Mosaic Promise will support the future programming of the ArtPrize organization. ArtPrize is an international art competition, open to any artist and decided by public vote. Its mission is to promote critical dialogue and collaboration through new, creative ideas among a large and diverse population of people. As an innovator in redefining what beer can be, we believe that experimentation is central to the human experience—whether one experiments with grains and hops or colored glass and light—and that sharing one’s creation with the public is a brave act worth celebrating.

On tap at Macgregor’s. Pours a clear orangish gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has lots of grass and pine notes that are backed by earthy citrus. Flavor is more dank with earthy pine backed by light grapefruit and earthy grains.

On tap tonight at the River Road Tavern. Lightly hazy light golden color without a head when the pint glass got to the table. Melon-y Spicy pine-y hop aromas with a hint of bready malt. The flavor is light sweet bready maltiness with plenty of spicy pine and hint of non descript fruitiness. If KBS wasn’t on tap I’d have happily drunk this all night!

On tap at Hopleaf, amazing aromas. Pours with a nice, lasting head. Crisp with a dry finish. Love the grassy-ness, but not too bitter, balanced by the citrus flavor. Another fave from founders. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted from draft. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma is piney and floral with maybe a little tropical fruit. Taste is moderate to heavily bitter. Lots of pine. Some floral and peppery notes as well. Don't get too much fruity flavors in the taste. Well done but I tend to prefer the citra single hop beers a little better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap...huge fresh hop aroma that our entire table could smell as the server placed it on the table. Golden pour that was very cloudy (dirty lines?) with a fluffy white head. No worries about the cloudiness as this was clean tasting with massive fresh hop flavor. Light bodied and easy drinking; this stuff was awesome.
