Pubsign for Hanzebrouwerij De Kroef
In Haaksbergen, the Netherlands, sails the ‘Buurser Pot’; a traditional dutch canal boat, that has it’s harbor the Lankheet estate. The sailors take tourists on daytrips over the Buurser canal. The sailors also got their own brewery, where the guest can drink a beer at the end of the trip.There was need for a pubsign for this brewery, so I got the commission to make one for them. The sign depicts the boat, its sailor and the beer. In his left hand, the sailor holds a so called ‘kroef’, a tool and symbol for the traditional irrigation techniques being practiced on the Lankheet estate, and with which they’ve gotten quite some recognition the last couple of years. The pure water from the estate helps the taste of the beer.
