It's a winning hand for local beer lovers
Artist Aaron Trotter has released his second set of hand-illustrated playing cards highlighting craft breweries.
The Seattle Brewery Deck is a limited edition deck of playing cards that features hand-drawn pen and ink illustrations of 52 neighborhood breweries throughout the Puget Sound region.
Bainbridge Island Brewery is featured on the ace of clubs.
Since producing his first deck of illustrated cards in 2010, Trotter has distributed thousands of handcrafted, locally produced decks across the country. His drawings are documentary artifacts that capture a visual record of iconic landmarks for a growing roster of cities.
His first Seattle-themed deck featured famous Seattle landmarks and neighborhood places, ranging from the iconic Space Needle and Pike Place Market to the Seattle Art Museum and Showbox.
The latest Seattle deck is the second in the Brewery Deck series created by Trotter, who published a Portland set just last year.
“Capturing and celebrating icons is my passion, and it seemed natural to extend from landmarks to craft breweries,” explained Trotter
“These breweries have become meccas to craft beer lovers; the brewery decks allow fans to celebrate the craft beer scene and remember where they’ve been or seek out a new place to visit.”
The decks retail for $20 and are available at www.illustratedplayingcards.com.
