Announcing Sudwerk's first ever NFT drop!
Beer Art Name: Next F'ing Trend (NFT)
Beer Style: Smoothie-Style Hard Seltzer Brewed with Raspberry & Tangerine
We tried not to take our first NFT release too seriously, poking fun at the rapid pace of change across the economy from craft brewing to the greater metaverse. We’ve all had “analysis paralysis” in the beer aisle with the countless, never-ending new styles to choose from. The beer style brewed is an amalgamation of the top “beer” trends of recent years – fruited, hazy, seltzer and low cal. For the beer’s name, we took liberty creating our own acronym of an NFT (“Next F’ing Trend”) to represent the infinite “fear of missing out;” with the label artwork featuring several of our most popular “one-off” limited labels that have been released over the past few years.
Fun aside, we do understand there’s potential to be unlocked through NFTs and the future building stronger community connections via the metaverse. But for now, you still can’t drink beer through the internet (yet)!
About the Artist
This original artwork was created by Sudwerk's In-House Artist Gregory Shilling (@paintinmyblood). In alignment with directly supporting creators, Sudwerk and Gregory will be sharing the proceeds raised from the NFT sale.

Either way we want in! Soon enough we’ll be able to sell you digital brews made of hoppy little pixels. As we speak, our researchers are narrowing down which laptop port to pour the beer into. This label artwork on the other hand is up for auction as Sudwerk's first ever NFT that will be featured and sold on a limited release beer.
So what are you waiting for?! Make your bid now before it's too late! Buy it! Sell it! Click til your fingers bleed! THE FUTURE IS NOW AND YOU’RE GONNA MISS OUT!!!!
