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.

Willebecher glass draft at Martin City Brewing Company The Pub in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is a clear golden with a smallish white head. The aroma is fresh juicy tropical fruit along with some floral grass. The taste is the super fresh, juicy mango and pineapple fruit, a bit of dank and then the floral grass in the back. The palate is medium bodied with soft carbonation and a clean hoppy tropical fruit finish. Easy drinking, nice one.

Draft that poured s clear bright yellow with white head. The aroma was quite floral and underlying citrus notes mild to medium malt base. The flavor was bright and crisp with plenty of upfront floral and citrus such as grapefruit and mango. Overall a very good beer with a nice bitterness that last after the last sip.

dagimp (859) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2015
from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a clear golden yellow, very cool. Not much head but a decent amount of sticky lacing. Mouthfeel is very light but somehow greasy????? Not yummy. Taste is Mosaic. Got that skunky, flowery, sticky taste that Mosaic hops has. Overall a decent beer, if not good.

tap - Pours clear golden with a small off-white head. The aroma is led by floral and citrus hops. It has good, crisp bitterness with the citrus and floral tones coming through well. Medium bodied. Very good.

juiceisloose (1202) - Windermere, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Draft pour. Pours a cloudy golden orange color and topped by a 2 finger off white head of foam that slowly settles to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of juicy citrus fruit with mango, tangerine, and grapefruit all showing strong with lighter notes of pine and herbs over a toasted caramel malt base. The flavor follows with bright citrus front up front with the mango, grapefruit, and orange taking center stage followed by some resinous pine, grass, and caramel malt. Citrus and floral hops add ample bitterness and provide a nice balance. Medium bodied, smooth and easy drinking with moderate carbonation that helps accentuate the bitterness. The citrus hop bitterness lingers in the finish. Solid session IPA from Founders.
