Art Contest for Vista Brewing’s New Honey Wheat Beer Label
Vista Brewing and the Bee Cave Arts Foundation are collaborating on a new honey wheat brew, aptly named “Bee Cave Honey Wheat.” The brew is inspired by Vista’s new tasting room in Bee Cave, Texas, located in the Hill Country Galleria. To celebrate the launch, Vista and the foundation are encouraging the community to get involved by submitting art to become the face of the new can.
From now through January 29, members of the community of all ages are invited to create a beer can label design inspired by the story of the beer. Bee Cave Honey Wheat will be released in February at both Vista locations, both on draft and in 16oz cans to-go designed by the contest winner. Details on how to enter can be found in the ENTRY FORM as well as the CAN LABEL TEMPLATE DOWNLOAD.
All entries are due by January 29. The winning design will be chosen by a panel of Vista team members and the Board of the Arts. The contest winner will receive a prize pack including cans of the new beer, a Vista hat, a Vista gift card, and a jar of honey from Vista’s onsite apiary in Driftwood. Vista Brewing will donate a portion of proceeds from the Bee Cave Honey Wheat back to the Bee Cave Arts Foundation in support of their mission.
The brew, which uses over 100 pounds of Texas wildflower honey, celebrates Vista’s connection to beekeeping and its 16-hive onsite apiary at the brewery in Driftwood. The honey wheat beer is crisp, light and drinkable, at 4.8% ABV, with flavors of fresh baked bread, orange and a light honey sweetness.
Vista’s next-door neighbor in the Galleria, The Hive, is the Foundation’s community art center which features artwork by local artists and students, as well as a hands-on kid’s art area, community service projects for volunteers, and art classes for adults and children.
