Oskar Blues hops on Barack and Shepard Fairey

It’s been faked, photo-copied, duplicated and replicated, mocked and knocked off. But Shepard Fairey’s now-iconic blue-and-red print of Barack Obama’s hopeful face never gave us reason to drink – until the folks at Oskar Blues got a hold of it.

The Lyons-based brewery, makers of Dale’s Pale Ale and Old Chub, is selling prints depicting its flagship canned beer tinged with red and white, and flavored with “HOPS” (rather than “HOPE” or “PROGRESS,” as in Fairey’s work). Get two for $7 at www.oskarblues.com.

It’s a pretty funny take on the artwork and just what this country needs. – Jonathan Shikes
