Stella Artois is hosting “The Art of the Chalice” on August 10, 2017 from 7-10pm. The event celebrates the best of Stella Artois and the best of the city’s local art, culture, and cuisine through the lens of the Stella Artois Chalice.
Stella Artois commissioned local art duo No Kings Collective to create a mural inspired by the city of Washington, D.C. and the Stella Artois Chalice.
To unveil the “The Art of the Chalice” mural, Stella Artois is hosting an event at the Ronald Reagan Atrium. No Kings Collective’s mural reflects the city’s political history as well as the cultural liveliness, incorporating red and white colors that are iconic to both Stella Artois and Washington, D.C. Following the event, the mural will be on display for six months between Meridian Hill and Logan Circle on 1738 14th St NW.
Stella Artois also enlisted local artisans to help celebrate the city including Top Chef Bart Vandaele, glass artists from the McFadden Art Glass Studio and folk-rock music group Wylder.
Beer expert and Master Cicerone® Max Bakker will be at the event to teach guests more about the Stella Artois Chalice and the brand’s signature Nine Step Pouring Ritual. Max is one of only 13 individuals worldwide to earn the title of Master Cicerone®, which is the fourth and highest level of the Cicerone Certification Program. It recognizes an exceptional understanding of brewing, beer, and pairing – combining outstanding tasting abilities with an encyclopedic knowledge of beers.
This event is part of the “The Art of the Chalice” program which pays tribute to the iconic Stella Artois Chalice through local art installations across the country.
