Collective Arts’ Best of 2016

2016 was our most exciting year yet; we launched coast-to-coast in Canada, made our way into the United States, Australia, Spain, and Italy, we crammed some of the best up-and-coming artists into the Indie88 Black Box, and we met some amazing musicians through our video series “Just Tapped”.  Let’s not forget the festivals, new brews and people we’ve met along the way!

Here are our best moments from 2016:

1. BLACK BOX SESSIONS

The Strumbellas
This Black Box Session reached over 600,000 views!

Wintersleep
The ultimate Collective Arts experience is when a series artist makes their way to the Black Box! Wintersleep appeared on our Series 6 labels.

2. WORLD BEER CUP WINNER

On May 6, 2016 our Stranger Than Fiction Porter was awarded Bronze at the World Beer Cup. We could not be more proud of our Porter winning such a prestigious award! Read more about the award: collectiveartsbrewing.com

3. BOSTON, CONNECTICUT  & VERMONT LAUNCH

The Collective team  travelled through Boston, Connecticut and Vermont on a mission to share our passion of art plus brewing. In order for this to work, we not only needed some help along the way, but we needed the warm welcome that we were so graciously given. A big thanks goes out to the Craft Brewers Guild, bar owners, beer drinkers and anyone and everyone who believed in our vision. THANK YOU.

5. SUPERCRAWL

Hamilton, Ontario – You really showed us how to Art + Brewing! Supercrawl brought in 10’s of thousands of people from across the province to art crawl like no other. We had all hands on deck as the crowds piled in for beer, art and music. Watching some of our series artists like Choir, Choir, Choir!, Tuns, Bravestation, and Billy Moon while sipping on a local brew was the ultimate #HamOnt experience!

6. JUST TAPPED

This year we met so many amazing musicians and we jumped on that opportunity to sit down and talk all things creativity. Just Tapped is a series of short, intimate conversations that brings light to artists, musicians and the creative consciousness. We talk about what drives artists’ creativity, and the joy their work brings them. This series stems from Collective Arts’ DNA; creativity lives in our soul, and here we expose the passion that drives creativity and their craft.

Thanks to you, our drinkers, artists and musicians, 2016 was a pretty epic year. 2017 – Here we come!
