Green Line Brewery in downtown Canton has launched a label design contest to find the best design for its upcoming new line of canned beer, Wanimal Whisky Stout.
This contest, which will run until midnight on March 15, is asking for local artists to take place in the label design contest, with the winner receiving $250 and consideration for future contract work. Second and third place will win $100 and $50, respectively. The winner will be announced in early April.
Green Line Vice President Luke Dyer said the artwork submissions can be in .ai, .eps, or .jpeg file formats.
“These file types leave the detail of the work up to the artist,” he said. “The winning design will be placed on the Wanimal Whisky Barrel Stout. The brewery encourages participants to be as creative as possible.”
The brewpub recently signed a 200 barrel-minimum production partnership with a contract brewing facility in the Lawrenceville area, Dyer said. The first brand of Green Line beer is expected to be on store shelves by mid-March.
“From our humble opening in October of 2016, it has been the ultimate goal to spread our message across North Georgia and beyond,” Green Line Owner Brent St. Vrain said. “I can’t think of a better way to start connecting with people outside of Cherokee County than allowing artists from all walks of life to work on a debut Green Line Brewery can.”
Green Line Brewery, 192 E. Main St. was Canton’s first brewery and is the sole beer provider of the Canton River Rock concert series and all Canton First Friday events. The brewery also has a food menu including burgers, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, grilled cheese, fries, onion rings, and cracked pepper potato chips.
