In an unheard of collaboration between brewers and board artists…
“It takes a tribe to invent something never done before by us. A countless amount of thanks goes out to our valuable team players in this piece.
First and foremost, thanks to Adam and Robyn of Exodus Painting for their expert work with epoxys, creating the ability for these translucent waves and Beards logo to be stunning in color, and modifying those colors to be translucent enough to shine any color through them when the lights are turned on.
Thanks to Baytees, for laser cutting the logo from Beards to perfection, and all the things that Julie and Joe do for us.
None of this would have been possible without the help of David from Little Traverse Electric. Thanks David, for hands on designing the idea and helping me day after day in making this board a reality. From start to finish, his expertise in timelines as well as lighting, and really honestly just making an idea a reality is truly appreciated.
And last but not least, thanks to Sam Mclellan from FeAI Metal Design for creating the metal hop leaf shrouds which adorn the hanging lights.
This sign board was a dream of mine, one year in the making. Completely custom, everything that makes up this idea has never been done before. Specialty framing, building technologies, SO SO much help form everyone listed.
This whole idea is truly a blessing to see hanging in one of my favorite places to dine and relax.” – Jason Thelen
