In Beer We Trust by Gamma-Ray creates a beer-themed stained glass window. It’s a choice that feels appropriate, given the outsized importance beer holds in the imaginations of its biggest fans. It feels like an ode to the ancientness and tradition of the beverage, as well as the craft and artistry it often inspires. The details do well at supporting the concept, with hops, barrels, and grain imagery taking the place of more religious iconography. And while most of the art sticks to strong geometric shapes, the design knows when its worth introducing more variation, such as with the lines of the angels’ robes and the very drippy curves of the beer’s foam. Color also enhances the art, setting the golds and oranges of the beer against a blue background that helps them to stand out. Very nice.
