MocU wrap-up

A few weeks ago, online beer store MoCU hosted an art and beer exhibition called Happy When it Rains as part of Art Month Sydney.

Curated by Sebastian Goldspink, the show featured works from eight artists, each examining the craftsmanship and creativity involved in making art and brewing beer. “The idea [was] to explore uncommon pairings,” Goldspink explained. And with artworks ranging from paintings to sculptures to installation pieces like Jason Wing’s Fossil Fuel – a collection of resin-cast shells with ghostly facial features – we’d certainly call the event a success.

The drinks list, too, was a curated affair – as you might expect with MoCU behind the bar. The star of the night was the Grand Kirin Dip Hop IPL, a hoppy number brewed in Japan using rice malt. Uncommon pairings indeed.

MoCU also held a special preview session of Happy When it Rains just for Smith readers. As you can see from the above photos, it was quite a hoot. For more information on the exhibit and the artists involved, head over to MoCU. Where, conveniently enough, you can also purchase some beer without leaving the house. A perfect wet weather activity.
