Brush and Barrel!

By camilla @ 7:41 am

Carol Boucher, Pastel Artist, is well known, not only as a superb artist, but also as a teacher of Pastel art. Brush and Barrel beers pair Vermont artists with Long Trail Brewery’s brewmasters.  A new beer, Saison, was created by Brewmaster Dave Hartmann, and Carol Boucher, pastelist, was chosen as the artist.  Carol’s painting, featured on the label, depicts hops growing in the foreground, a red barn and farm fields with distant hills in the background.
