In honor of the birth of our son, my wife Cheryl and I took a beer making class at Beverage Art in Beverly, Illinois. It’s a cute little beer & wine making and supply store located in a near southside, 1950’s suburb of Chicago. We wanted to make a really “hoppy” pale ale style along the lines of Bell’s Two-Hearted Ale. Our first batch was ready just in time for Cedar Joaquin’s entry into the world.

Here’s the label artwork I designed for it. The color matches the little guy’s nursery. The kangaroo imagery goes with the name.
