What happens when beer meets glass? Well, yeah, that! We’re excited to announce that Pilchuck Glass School and Chicago Brewseum are partnering to bring you Beer + Glass: Exhibition Opening & Reception, an exciting exhibition opening on Thursday, September 5.

The evening reception includes a brief conversation with artists and representatives from both organizations, including beer expert and author Randy Mosher. Guests will also have the chance to purchase iconic beer glasses reimagined by Pilchuck artists, either as individual glasses or as comprehensive sets.

Be the first to see this unique blend of history and artistry. In honor of this creative collaboration, our friends at Pike Brewing Company in Seattle and Forbidden Root in Chicago have brewed up a one time, limited edition beer to commemorate the occasion. Be the first to see this unique blend of history and artistry and join us at Pilchuck's downtown Seattle gallery during the September First Thursday Art Walk!

Featured artists include Victoria Ahmadizadeh, Beccy Feather, DH McNabb, Michael Schunke, Ed Schmid, Jeremy Bert, and Tyler Gordon.
