Celebrating the creative magic at the intersection of art and ales, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery’s Off-Centered Art Series is a yearly collection of four limited-edition beers featuring artwork by a different collaborating artist. The brewery’s featured artist for 2022 is Max Mahn, a well-known printmaker and illustrator from Missoula, Mont. Mahn kicked off his Off-Centered Art Series residency with label artwork for the brewery’s all-new beer: Where the Wild Hops Are. This rustic, unfiltered IPA is brewed with four wild-derived hop varieties and now is available nationwide on taps and shelves, in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles. Mahn’s label artwork for Where the Wild Hops Are sets an ominously mysterious tone, featuring an old school box trap baited by nothing other than a large hop cone, the company says. The illustration’s lively color palette alongside the detail-oriented nature of Mahn’s work, brings the scene to life, it adds. “We were so excited about Max’s interpretation of Where the Wild Hops Are that we decided to create a limited-edition, long-sleeve T-shirt and a ‘gig’ poster of our own, so drinkers can not only taste the art through the beer, but they can also wear it or display it in their home,” said Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and brewer, in a statement.
