Aside from the camaraderie and celebration, one of our favorite things that came from our collaboration with Burial Beer Co. was the outstanding artwork by artist David Paul Seymour. Originally designed to fit the can for A Desolate Divide on this Eastward Metamorphosis, a delicious IPA, we also had this masterpiece printed in a poster format. Burial’s one-liner pretty well sums up the idea behind this piece: An intentional journey into the endless embrace of suffering, but the concept was to depict visual elements from the natural world along The Eastern Divide Trail, as well as to show the dichotomy of suffering and reward that riders experience on such a journey.
The art is beautifully printed on an 11 x 17” (28 x 43cm) archival paper that’s perfect for framing and hanging on your shop wall. Burial sold out of these beauties, but we reserved a handful (7) of them to give away to our members. We’ll be randomly picking the winners in April, and if you’re a member, you’re already signed up for this drawing. If you’re not, be sure to join the Bikepacking Collective to be eligible for this reward and many others.
