CRUSH – A Love Letter From Us, To Brew

We talk about beer a lot. It’s maybe getting a bit weird. How do we know beer feels the same way about us? Don’t worry, we have a plan. We plan to tackle that question the only way teenage girls in problematic 80s movies know-how—a love letter.

We’ve made CRUSH, a beer-zine. It’s honestly written, beautifully printed and lovingly illustrated by our team at O Street. We are pretty confident it’s just the ticket to woo our sweetheart.

What better way to show your appreciation, than drawing unsolicited portraits of them whilst critiquing how they look and taste? This metaphor is probably running out of steam, but you get it.

The two birds that have been fed with the singular scone are:
– O Street wanted an excuse to design a publication.
– O Street wanted an excuse to show beer how much of a catch we are.

We picked 6 beers that we dig, from both sides of the pond, and thoughtfully commented on the packaging (our area of expertise) and the flavour (our area of enthusiastic but amateur interest). Add a fun fact & illustration for each, and the job’s a good’un.
