Grayton Beer Company supports art-based programs, charities

Grayton Beer Company in Santa Rosa Beach recently announced its new Artist Series, an initiative where the brewery features designs from local artists on its 22-oz. seasonal beers. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of these beers will go toward art-based programs and charities in the Panhandle.

“We live in an area that is rich with artists, photographers and musicians, and we wanted to pay tribute to this by displaying artwork on our larger bottles in place of a traditional label,” said Grayton Beer Company President Jamey Price.

Grayton’s spiced pumpkin ale, Gourdgeous, hit shelves as the first beer offered in these 22-oz. bottles and also the first beer featured in the Artist Series. The bottle displays artwork created by one of Grayton Beer’s own brewers, Tyler White, and is a play on Grayton’s brew house using pumpkins in place of the brewing vessels.
