Westvleteren Nouveau

Westvleteren Abbey illustration painting

This isn't the first piece of Westvleteren-inspired art we've done and it probably won't be the last. We love the mystique surrounding this Trappist brewery and the three great beers that come from it. With these paintings and illustrations we are always trying to pay tribute to beers and breweries we love. Beyond that, we like the idea of elevating beer art beyond tin signs and neon lights. With Westvleteren, it is about filling a void, as there is virtually no way for those that love Westvleteren to show it beyond saving a few caps.

As with the other illustrations we've done, this illustration is priced quite a bit lower than our regular oil paintings. Despite the fact that this is an illustration, it is still drawn, inked, and painted on canvas with a hanging wire on the back and a varnished surface for protection.
