Brad Hosbach Designs Your Philly Beer Week Attire

Philly artist and middle school teacher Brad Hosbach has designed a shirt to go with all of the beer you'll be having at Philly Beer Week. And the money you spend on it goes to help a good cause.
A few months back,  I entered a design contest for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.  I ended up winning and also learning a bit about the foundation.  I've been making t-shirts for a few years now and I've given some discounts for "relay for life" tees and stuff like that, so i thought I'd step it up a notch and donate 3 dollars from each BEER WEEK shirt (to ALSF) to help fight childhood cancer. 
 Here's the design:
I like the integration of the skyline with the PBW logo (the LOVE statue made into BEER). It's interesting that Yards gets its own building, and the other great breweries of Philly are just implied, but having been to many of the city breweries, I can say that the Yards facility is definitely the most striking from the outside, so that makes sense.

There are more details on the shirts at many places, including Primitive Printing and The Brew Lounge (from whence I found out about it). But the bottom line is you e-mail Brad or just pay that email address through PayPal. It comes in blue but if you want something special color-wise, Brad can probably make it happen.
 The shirts come in 3 styles:
Hanes beefy tee $10  (sizes are pretty true)
American Apparel soft tee $15  (run a bit tight)
Alt Apparel girl fitted tee $15  (a bit snug, order a size up if needed)
add $2 for xxl, xxxl, $3 for xxxxl
Shipping costs an additional $3.

As for Brad's other work, here's his contest winning shirt design.:
Here's some of his Fauvism-inspired paintings:
