David Le Batard

Better known in the art world as Lebo, is one of Miami’s most famous artists.  He is recognized for working in a wide spectrum of creative mediums including murals, paintings and sculptures. Lebo is the innovator of Postmodern Cartoon Expressionism – a combination of cartoon imagery, richly saturated balances of color and unique linear composition brought together in a narrative style to inspire emotion and create layers of meaning. Lebo is our branding guru.  From our logo, to our taps, labels and cans, his art is in everything we sell.  Since crafting beer is an art form we decided that what holds our art, should also be art in itself.
