The Artists:

The End of Reason Label Artist
Buzz Parker is an artist/illustrator residing in beautiful Humboldt County, CA. He likes to draw & paint fantasic tree houses, incredible plants and a leafy creature he created named Bigleaf. His art has an edgy twist fueled by my exposure to the forests and diverse environments in Northern California. He’s worked with Harper Collins, Chronicle Books, Dark Horse Comics and illustrated for various magazines. He is also an illustrator with Emily the Strange. www.buzzparker.com

Time Traveler Label Artist
Punk Art Sur­re­al­ist Win­ston Smith, is a mas­ter of “hand-carved” col­lage, and has been craft­ing his thought-provoking art since the 1970’s. After being abroad for six years, Win­ston returned to Amer­ica and was aston­ished by the com­pla­cency the Amer­i­can pub­lic exhib­ited towards the cor­po­rate dom­i­na­tion in their soci­ety. Win­ston began tak­ing “safe” images from mag­a­zines and com­bin­ing them to cre­ate polit­i­cally charged works of art that chal­lenge the viewer to con­front incon­gruities and polit­i­cal para­doxes of mod­ern soci­ety.

Smith first became known (and later beloved) for his col­lab­o­ra­tions with punk leg­ends Dead Kennedys and his numer­ous album cov­ers, inserts and fly­ers for the band in their for­ma­tive years. His tech­nique of cut­ting out by hand and glu­ing each indi­vid­ual ele­ment has inspired a gen­er­a­tion of artists.

The Beers:

The End of Reason is a newly invented beer style, Petite Belgian-style Quad at 8.3% abv. From the bottle, “At the outer limits, you find things that defy labels… what’s in this bottle? A beer with no previous example. An expression of what our taste buds desire during the coldest months of the year. Rich caramel malt flavors, depth and complexity derived from a belgian yeast strain, all with a warming finish. Drink now, or age for years.

Time Traveler is an incredible Porter. From the bottle, “It was upon my emergence from my craft that I realized I had traveled not to another place, but to another time. About me lumbered a number of stout men, burdened by heavy loads. Finding a sudden need to slake my thirst and steady my mind, I called our to one of the PORTERs. He pointed to a tavern, inside of which I found this roasty, chocolaty, and supremely drinkable brew.”
