"Foam to farm"
We here at Black Shirt are proud to participate in agricultural sustainability by donating our spent grains to local farms. These spent grains are given to the animals who in turn provide eggs, wool, milk and meat in addition to eliminating excess waste.
In addition to working with local farms, we use our spent grain in our pizza dough, and utilize our beer in several recipes, including our Stringbender Ceasar dressing and Red Ale Berkshire sausage.
SARA BOWERSOCK (POINT BLANK ART & DESIGN)
“There's a spontaneous dynamic to live rock 'n' roll that isn't easy to translate to recording, let alone to canvas. But artist Sara Bowersock embodies that spirit with her Warhol- and Lichtenstein-inspired pop art, transforming the simplicity of hand-cut stencils, acrylic and spray paint into unrestrained, florid expressions of movement, heat and shadow. Her distinctive style is imitated (but never, ever duplicated). Most who see her work agree: Bowersock's talent simply sings.” - Jennifer Chancellor, Oklahoma Gazette
Sara Bowersock began her career in kindergarten when she stole a classmates crayons to draw and write curse words on the school doors. A few decades and a bachelor’s degree later, she is still at it (making art, not stealing crayons and writing curse words on school doors).
Influenced by artists like Warhol, Shepard Fairey, Banksy, and Ralph Steadman, Sara’s style is a mixture of pop-culture and street art that screams creativity as she continues to develop a unique and instantly recognizable body of work.
Sara started Point Blank Art & Design, LLC in 2009, and since then, her work has been published in books, plastered onto walls, licensed for album covers and clothing lines, commissioned, presented to a lifetime achievement award recipient, and featured in homes around the world, and she’s just getting started!
Born in Michigan, raised in Oklahoma, Sara currently lives in Westminster, Colorado and is the proud owner of three cats that she likes to dress up in ridiculous outfits.
