"The “Shipwreck Oak Barrel Stout” reflects the unique blend of flavours, textures, and tastes that are born out of this cross continental infusion. Referencing 19th century signage, and the gritty personality of those who challenge the high seas, this beer is positioned towards typical craft beer enthusiasts; These beer drinkers are always looking for a new and unique taste, and are often attracted to labels that differentiate themselves from crowd."

Zia Somjee is designer based in Vancouver, Canada. With a passion for communication, he loves to explore and understand how to effectively reach and speak to certain target audiences. As a self proclaimed night owl, Zia can be found designing, blogging, or tweeting into the depths of the night.

We’re majorly impressed with these prints done by Baltimore Print Studios in collaboration with the fine folks of Power & Light Press. Inspired by coffee and the printmaking presses in their own shop, these editions challenge which is truly the best press.
