We accepted a really awesome design contract with Marge Cafarelli, Managing Partner with Urban Developments and the leading force behind Alma del Pueblo. The plan was to open a beer garden (name respectfully "The Garden") that would showcase some of the best craft beers made in the central coast with a focus on Santa Barbara County makers of all sort of beers from Lagers to sours beers. There will be 41 tapped cages available for tasting at any given time. So this is where we came in. We designed the tap handles from vegetable tanned leather, embossed their logo and sewed them up. We used both natural finished and hand-dyed. In a few words, we were very please at the results.
Last night was the opening and it was a huge success! People enjoyed hanging out in the space which was co-designed by The Brothers of Industry and Marge Caferelli, herself.
