There certainly is an art to brewing good beer, and sometimes beer shows up in visual art. For Altered Esthetics' latest group show, "Brewers' Craft," more than 20 artists created pieces exploring the process and craft involved in making, serving, and enjoying a good pint. On display will be posters romanticizing various beers and their preferred glassware, including the iconic Oktoberfest mug and pilsner glasses. There will also be photography and paintings celebrating hops, the not-so-secret ingredient known to give IPAs and other brews their kick. In addition to work adorning the walls of AE, pieces will also be on display at Indeed Brewing Company (711 15th Ave. NE, Minneapolis), where you can drink some ale while contemplating the intersection of beer and art. During this time, Altered Esthetics will also be hosting "Comic Artists at the Opera," a group exhibition featuring opera sketches by Minnesota comic artists. There will be an opening reception for both shows from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, April 5, and an artists' discussion panel for "Brewers' Craft" at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 13. Altered Esthetics will also be celebrating its ninth anniversary from 6 to 11 p.m. Saturday, April 20, with beer from local breweries, a giant beer pong game, a stein swap, raffles, and more.
