Art meets beer at FRANK

October 21st, 2015


Turner-Inspired British Eats is the theme of a beer tasting at FRANK on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 6:30 p.m. Using British terminology and inspiration, and timed to coincide with the opening of the AGO’s major fall exhibition J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free, the menu has been created to pair with beers from Collective Arts Brewing.

A fairly new addition to the local brewery scene, Collective Arts Brewing is a grassroots beer company that is as deeply committed to producing craft beer as it is to supporting the arts. Matt Johnston and Bob Russell founded the company in 2013 based on two core beliefs: creativity fosters creativity and creativity yields delicious pints.

Each bottle of beer is considered to be a work of art — not just for the thirst-quenching brews found inside, but also for the limited-edition works of art by artists and musicians found on the outside. The AGO’s own Andrew Hunter, Fredrik S. Eaton Curator, Canadian Art has been featured as a curator for the artist series on the labelling.
