The appearance of mythical beings and fantastical creatures staring out from the side of your beer bottle might ordinarily suggest you’ve had rather too much to drink. But for Midwest brewers Oliphant, these manifestations are quite the norm. The head of the Oliphant, the imaginary creature that gave the brewery its name, now watches over its range of boutique ales.
Inspired by ancient Mesoamerican cultures and Egyptian hieroglyphics the hand-drawn creature is a fitting guardian for a strange menagerie of craft beers – these include other curious beasts such as Milkman Man-Baby, Dorkness and Land Eels vs Sea Snakes.
We reckon there’s a caution here. If you do over-indulge, look in the mirror the next day and you might see a terrifying snaggle-toothed, bug-eyed creature reflected.
