Duvel Golden Ale STEAM-rolls out first-ever US campaign in Brooklyn

A full-size steamroller will be used to create limited-edition art prints by rolling over jumbo wood-cut blocks.  The larger-than-life process mimics the wood-cut artistry now featured on the back labels of all Duvel single-serve bottles as part of its “celebrate masterfulness” campaign.  Drive By Press hand cut four 4’x4′ blocks over a period of 80 hours in their studio for use in the demonstration.

The event at the Crown Vic Pub (60 2nd Street, Brooklyn) on Tuesday, October 14 runs from 5-8 PM and is open to the public as well as invited guests and media.  Duvel will be featured and sampled throughout the night and a miniature version of the steam-roller exercise will create custom-print wood-cut T-shirts for guests as guests get a first-hand view of the technique large and small.
