Congratulations To Melissa Schmechel, Winner of Beer Is Culture 2011
We’d like to raise a toast to our first winner of Beer Is Culture, Sixpoint’s annual art and design exhibition. Melissa Schmechel‘s graphic illustration of the event’s theme — “Beer Is Culture” — gained 395 votes from viewers of the exhibit on our Facebook page, ensuring its spot at the top. Congrats! It’s now the profile pic of Sixpoint’s Facebook page, and we’ll be treating Melissa to some other perks soon, including a year’s membership to a museum of her choice. It was our honor seeing all of the submissions roll in over the past few weeks, and getting to know the designers whose pieces made it to the finalist round. Each of those six finalists will be receiving a care package soon, too, with goodies from the brewery as well as our fellow local craftsmen and women.
These small tokens of our respect for the designers are not meant to be retribution for their quality work, but rather a fun way of capping off the event. We look forward to throwing it again next year, and seeing how “Beer Is Culture” is reflected in so many ways.
