All Souls Ale: Have Beer, Need Art

All Souls Ale Art Contest
Imagine Missoula and Big Sky Brewing Company have announced the inaugural All Souls Art Contest in correlation with the release of the 2015 edition of All Souls Ale. This annual beer release has served to raise monies for Imagine Missoula, a Missoula-based non-profit that does so many good things for their community they can’t be listed here, so check out their website!

All Souls Ale has been incarnated around every holiday season/winter, and it has taken a few different forms, from Imperial Saison to Belgium Trippel. Each bottle is hand-filled and numbered by volunteers, and the release party is always a hoot.
