so many buttons!
We held an awesome fundraiser at Threadless HQ and invited people to bring their fave craft beer. Here’s a list of what was brought by us and all the amazing people who turned out for the event*!
Thanks to everyone who participated in our first live event! We had a blast! We know we missed a few beers but want to give a special thanks to Jamie Curran, Tristan Tanner, and Danialle Lewis for keeping up the list and working the door!
All beer was gone by the end of the night and we took that as a sign of success! Keep supporting craft beer!

Kinda mulling over some visuals for the 6-Pack Stories project i’m doing with Jason Aaron for ARCADE BREWERY. I figure since there’s gonna be cowboys in it, i better brush up on my horse-drawing!
check out the project on Kickstarter, and if you can, please help it along. We appreciate your support! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/417753817/arcade-brewery
Arcade Brewery is a prospective production brewery. We want to create a deeper connection between our customers and their beer. Our goal is to create amazingly delicious craft beer with the help of our customers.
Arcade Brewery is also collaborating with amazing comic book artists and writers to bring label and packaging design to a whole new level of awesomeness. We are currently working with the talented Tony Moore (The Walking Dead), Eisner-nominated writer Jason Aaron (Scalped, Wolverine, PunisherMAX), and graphic artist Seibei.

America’s meat-fueled, working man’s More Pop genre; now explicitly defined in 8-letter form. An “original” cover band whose continued popularity in Chicago’s downtown & north side club circuit stems from high-energy live performances which employ on-stage theatrics such as heavy metal guitar solos, aggressive rapping, and patriotic Midwestern wardrobes & overtones adapted to popular music from 1970 - present.
Rock Razor Scissors will be taking a break from making touring bands look awesome to give you haircuts before Mothers Day.
Arcade Brewery is also committed to supporting local Chicago indie game developers. We loved arcades when we were kids but we’re not nostalgic for those old games (well, maybe just a little) but mostly we miss getting wowed by something new and experiencing it with our friends.
We will be featuring two local developers and their games will be available to play.
