To celebrate our National Parks with beer is a good idea. To hire the Anderson Design Group to design the cans is an even better one. That’s exactly what Uinta Brewing of Utah has done with their Rotating National Park Beers.
Uinta’s National Parks Beer Can Designs
The Salt Lake City–based craft brewery released its first of their Golden Ale Park Series last month. Inspired by Anderson Designs Group’s series of stunning National Park Posters and coffee table book, they hired them to help them revamp all of their beer bottles, cans, and packaging.
The American-style golden ales are clad in beautiful cans whose illustrations by Aaron Johnson and art direction by Joel Anderson harken back to classic WPA posters of the 30s.
“Many of the explorations that have inspired our beers have happened in and around National Parks and we’re excited to pay homage to that with this rotating series. We’re fortunate to have five National Parks within 5 hours of the brewery and hope that our Golden Ale encourages consumers to get out and explore those that surround them.” – Uinta’s Chief Executive Officer, Steve Mills
The National Parks to be featured on the rotating series of cans in 2017 are Yosemite, Yellowstone, Arches, Great Smoky Mountains, Acadia, Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain & Everglades.
The first beers in the series to be released feature Yosemite’s Half Dome, Yellowstone’s Old Faithful Geyser, The Arches National Park features their famous red rock formations and the fourth – a Black bear and cub.
“Working with Anderson Design Group has been an exciting process. It’s rare to find a small group with such expansive talents and an art form that aligned so well with our brand. We’re grateful to Joel and team for their ability to align with our vision to deliver iconic illustrations that both capture and intensify experiences. The Anderson Group has been a great partner in “Uinta-fying” our packaging and we’re excited to continue working with them on more Park Beers and other future beer labels.”- Uinta’s Chief Executive Officer, Steve Mills
