Brenner Brewing and The Pitch Project recently launched a new shared space, the ART/BEER Lounge, to highlight Brenner Brewing’s commitment to supporting the Milwaukee arts community. The ART/BEER Lounge will feature the original artwork commissioned by Brenner for each of his beers as well as new work by each of those Milwaukee artists.
In conjunction with the new ART/BEER Lounge The Pitch Project opened a new gallery space adjacent to the lounge. “Make You See Stars”, an exhibition featuring Chicago-based artist Mike Rea will be exhibited in this new space, while “the night time is never the right time”, featuring artist Christine Negus will be shown in the video screening room.
