Two Roads is asking artists to show us what “taking the Road Less Traveled” means to them for a chance to win $1,000 and have their art immortalized on a Two Roads beer release and a 30ft high fermenter in our brewery. Our “Road Less Traveled” philosophy led us to creating craft beers that are unique versions of some of the world’s most classic beer styles. Now we’d like you to show us how you take the “Road Less Traveled” with your art and we’ll help share it with others who appreciate your creativity and our beer!
Our contest is open to artists in all states where Two Roads is sold. 5 finalists will be chosen by voting from Two Roads fans themselves. The winner, selected by a panel of Two Roads employees, will receive $1,000.00, their art on a Two Roads beer label and on a 30 foot tall fermenter in the brewery. Second place will receive $250.00 and third place will receive a swag pack from Two Roads valued at $100. The top 3 finalists will be invited to an unveiling at the brewery. See below for contest details.
