RTG Beer and Wine Pairing Brochure


This project all began a couple of years ago when someone asked a question on the r/CannedSardines subreddit about pairing beer and tinned fish. We didn’t know the answer, but we knew the person who did, which is not just the next best thing, it’s one of the great perks of a life well lived. So I reached out to Evan Benn and asked if he’d be willing to write an answer to the question, which we would then share with the group. He did, and we loved it so much we didn’t want it lost to the composting action of all things social media. We worked off and on for many months to find the right way to present it. And during that time we became acquainted with Mitchell and his work with at haley.henry. It seemed to us a great pairing.

We hope their thoughts on pairing beverages with tinned fish serve as springboards for your own explorations. We invite you to agree, to disagree, and to engage in conversations regarding the nuances of every point along the range.

32 page full color booklet, 4.25″ x 11″, which means getting into most smaller boxes will involve bending it a bit.
