sneak preview.

On Monday, January 25 Beer Table in Brooklyn, NY will be hosting a tasting of beers from 12% Imports followed up with a sneak peak (and taste) of some of the soon to come releases from Stillwater Artisanal Ales.

Info from beertable.com:

"Following Brian Ewing's presentation earlier in the evening, we'll have our second homebrewing meet-n-greet with Brian Strumke, the brewer behind Stillwater Artisanal Ales. Stillwater Artisanal Ales is a nomadic brewing venture headed by Brian "Stillwater" Strumke, who's goal is to create inspired and unique ales in multiple locations around the globe. Bring samples of your own brews so we can all compare and contrast. Not a ticketed event. Come one come all. 9pm-?"

modus operandi

"A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing." -Sir William Dobell

The goal of Stillwater Artisanal is just that, living art. Although packaged within a medium often overlooked for its artistic merits, our desire is to offer something new and intriguing. We present more than just a fine crafted beverage, rather an occasion that evokes an emotion and inspires contemplation. For art is not a sum of actions but rather an approach to life. We draw our inspiration from the world around us, whether that be a season, location, or even humanity itself. Our intent is to encapsulate this muse exhibiting an artistic rendition to the best of our abilities.

Armed with passion we will travel to collaborate with other like-minded artisans, blending innovation with time-honored tradition to bring forth ales of unique character and deep complexity. We give you a product that is suitable for both a grand celebration or an afternoon picnic, for the moment is yours to unfold and we hope that the opening of a Stillwater Artisanal Ale enhances that experience.
