Client: Creature Comforts Brewing Company
Art Director: Kim Kirby
Young Athenians began our relationship with Athens, GA based Creature Comforts in 2011, creating 'Tropicália' 2 years before the brewery launched. The can has since come to represent both the brewery and Athens, GA design ingenuity, coming in ahead of the curve on the tropical design explosion of the past few years. Design blog THE DIELINE in a glowing review remarked, "I know it's going to draw attention in the design community & most likely winning some awards along the way." Tropicália is now available in select Georgia markets.
Tropicália® is a balanced, soft, and juicy IPA. A hop aroma of citrus and ripe passion fruit leads into a full, fruit-forward hop flavor that washes over the palate, and ends with a subtle bitterness. Tropicália is also the name of a Brazilian artistic movement that started in the late 1960s. It is best known today for its music, which merged Brazilian and African rhythms with rock and roll.
