Saint of Circumstance by Collective Arts, a Review

By: Shawna O'Flaherty

Collective Arts makes a really engaging beer. Their bottles feature limited release artwork by curated artists, and with the help of the Blippar app, the bottles come to life. No, I haven’t had a few too many – you simply scan the label, and voila! You can hear the music and see the videos of really great artists, and check out the artists bios. Every bottle in your 6-pack comes with a different label, and the label series changes 4 times a year. Their Black Box Sessions also make a great collaboration with Indie88.

We first heard about these guys at the Ugly Sweater Christmas Party last year, and we were quick fans. They stood out in a sea of great beer and painfully hideous sweaters, and we remembered them the next time we went on a beer run. But great bottle work and innovative product aside, the beer is pretty damn awesome too. I’m a big fan of the Rhyme & Reason Extra Pale Ale, but to counterbalance some seriously spicy food, I picked up the Saint of Circumstance “Any Time” Blonde Ale. I usually prefer blonde beers during the warmer months, but this one packs enough flavour into it to hold my attention during the winter months.
