63. Ides of July 2021: Radicle Red IPA
The radicle is the first part of a seedling to emerge from the seed. And so our Radicle Red IPA brings together an emerging artist and a brewer, collaborating in celebration of the 60th annual Toronto Outdoor Art Fair. Started in 1961 by Murray and Maravelle Koffler, the TOAF has helped launch numerous careers. Notable artists such as Ken Danby, David Blackwood, Joanne Tod, Jennifer Stead and Harlan House exhibited here during early stages of their careers and, last year, Varvara Nedilska did the same, winning the Best of Student award.
Says Varvara: ““My illustration reflects on the role beer has played in my life and the way I’ve seen it bring friends together during the pandemic, watching the sun go down together while sharing a drink.”
We hope you’ll agree that this Radicle Red IPA is a work of art in its own right, and we thank our own artist, Brian O’Donnell, for this thoughtful and tasty composition.
