Design Week Portland Presents Rough Draught – A Live Beer Design Brouhaha

As the Design Week Portland 2018 schedule comes together there is another event this year focuses on the design work that goes into craft beer marketing. Rough Draught – A Live Beer Design Brouhaha will take place on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at Hopworks Urban Brewery from 6:00-9:00pm.

Rough Draught – A Live Beer Design Brouhaha will bring together four designers all paired with four local breweries. Each pair has brewed a special beer just for this DWP event. During the evening’s social hour guests will be able to sample all four beers and submit a name for each beer. After the name of each beer is selected the designer will then have a set time to design a beer label from scratch, live in front of the audience.

Harvey Shepard, founder of Oh Beautiful Beer, will moderate the evening’s event. Shepard is a Massachusetts-born, Seattle-based designer with a beer label obsession. What started as a hobby grew out of control in 2011 when Harvey launched Since the launch, Harvey has been curating craft beer design on his blog. In 2015, Harvey published a book by the same name, where we profiled here on Brewpublic.
