This week’s collection of beer-label art takes us from Kalamazoo, MI to Portland, OR. The 10 beers hit citrus notes and celebrate abolitionists. The art draws from the legendary Andy Warhol, and also from the grand legacy of American cartooning. Let these labels sway you into drinking beers from Bell’s, Daredevil, Deschutes, Fat Cat, and more.
