A unique fusion of beer and art is about to take shape in Washington state. Two brewers out of Yakima who work at Single Hill Brewing are teaming up with a local artist to create something sensational, something that will not only introduce beer drinkers to new depths of hoppy flavors, but also expose them to captivating art.

Living in the Pacific Northwest brings certain perks, one of which is the exposure to craft brews. Hops is an agricultural kingpin in these parts, with the Yakima Valley growing up to 75% of the nation’s hops for beer. This makes Single Hill Brewing in downtown Yakima a hotspot for a new innovative beer-meets-art concept.

Dalliance is an art project for beer people and a beer project for art people.” -


Dalliance The Tarot Project

You’ll be able to purchase the beer and art collaborations soon, when their first product, The Tarot Project launches on Saturday, January 13th. Don’t get thrown off by the metaphysical name though, the beer cans will simply be featuring tarot card-meets-the-PNW inspired artwork.

Jamaica Zoglman is the local artist of the Dalliance project and she is teaming up with brewers Tristan Karosas and Andrew Ptyel. Minnesota native Karosas is the head brewer at Single Hill Brewing and will be creating new beers with Michigan-born Pytel.
