Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Announces Collaboration With Baltimore-based Artist Dave Plunkert

We’re excited to share the news that our artist collaboration for the 2011 Dogfish Seasonal Screenprint Series is with Baltimore-based Dave Plunkert. Dave caught our eye with his off-centered, robot inspired designs – they were right up our alley!

Since 2009, we’ve collaborated with screenprint artists to create custom pieces of art for our Aprihop (spring), Festina Peche (summer), Punkin Ale (fall) and Chicory Stout (winter) promotional materials. In conjunction with each beer’s release, we’ve released signed, limited-edition screenprints. Our 2008/09 artist featured was Ali Selders (yes, she’s the fantabulous wife of Dogfish brewer Bryan Selders) and in 2010 we collaborated with Marq Spusta.

The 2011 Plunkert original screenprints will be available here on our website store and in our Tasting Room store at the Milton brewery as the beers are released. We’ll post release date updates on our Facebook and Twitter as we have more information.

Here are a few samples of Dave’s work (pictures pop to full images):
