Industry News: Artist Aaron Trotter release the next in the Brewery Deck Series featuring Seattle Breweries

There’s been a recent development in novelty playing cards. Artist Aaron Trotter, known for his hand-illustrated playing cards has released a follow up to his “Brewery Deck Series”, this time in Seattle. Like the previous desk “Portland Breweries”, Aaron is chronicling the breweries throughout Seattle with this 52 brewery card deck.

“Capturing and celebrating icons is my passion, and it seemed natural to extend from landmarks to craft breweries,” explained Trotter. “These breweries have become meccas to craft beer lovers; the brewery decks allow fans to celebrate the craft beer scene and remember where they've been or seek out a new place to visit."

Using his Great-Aunt’s 1910 ink pen, Trotter has produced 52 drawings – each as unique as the other 51. Further adding uniqueness to this card deck Aaron added cross hatches as an homage to Renaissance artists Durer and Andreas Mantegna.

The decks are printed in the Northwest on UV coated card stock, have rounded corners and are shrink-wrapped.
