It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and with so many beer loving human friends we decided to feature some great shops to get some awesome merchandise for the craft beer lover in your life this season. We call these features “My Beer Love Gave To Me”. It’s time for our third feature. You can check out our first one by clicking HERE. You can check out our second one by clicking HERE.
Sustaining the way of craft beer is not solely based on visiting the local brewery or bottle shop and drinking every single beer they have to offer. Sustaining craft beer also means building and maintaining a culture shows the values and features what craft beer has to offer. Say hello to Craft Beerd. For Rudy Pollorena, this meant combining his love of beer with his passion for graphic design.
In 2013, Pollorena created his “San Diego Beer Matrix” piece which featured the names of San Diego breweries in a crossword themed print. The piece became a hit with the local craft beer community. Soon, there was a demand for the piece to be featured on shirts, pint glasses, and other goodies which lead to Pollorena starting Craft Beerd. Starting as a small time operation, Pollorena would personally deliver his Craft Beerd goods to customers at breweries and tasting rooms. Steadily, Craft Beerd found itself expanding beyond San Diego and into the surrounding counties and neighboring states. Nearly 3 years later, Craft Beerd is operated through an online web store which delivers to all of the United States.
What has made Craft Beerd pop is the designs that Pollorena has put forward. Through his use of diverse fonts, quirky designs and figures, and use of colors, Pollorena has found his a style that fits perfectly into today and showcases a fun passion for beer. There seems to something for all types of beer lovers. From the Beerafornia design to the Beer is Beautiful design; Craft Beerd captures the fun side of drinking beer.
