For the Artisan Ale Project, Twisted Pine developed twelve distinct new beers and then enlisted the help of a dozen talented Colorado artists for artwork to adorn the labels. On the first Saturday of every month in 2012, the brewery will introduce a small batch of one of the ales at a special release-party which will double as an art show for that months featured artist. The Artisan ales will come in sleek, black 750ml glass bottles and will mark the brewerys first foray into that size packaging. Quantities will be limited, especially for the barrel-aged beers in the series. Distribution of the bottles will be restricted to Colorado accounts and the Twisted Pine ale house will have each new beer on tap for as long as supplies last. Twisted Pine is proud to be part of a very artistic community in Colorado and excited to release a product that supports and celebrates the arts and the art of crafting a fine beer.
