The Art of the Minnesota Brew showcases vintage beer memorabilia


City Pages just launched a new website, The Art of Minnesota Brew, as a graphic homage to the state's rich beer-making traditions. (Props to Art Director Mike Kooiman!)

The site is a gallery of images cataloging the vintage commercial art of local breweries: beer cans, coasters, trays, signage, advertisements, and more. Betcha never knew that the Schmidt brewery once had its own Indian-themed marching band, complete with uniforms and drums--wow!
