Beer Ties: Ties That Don’t Suck

Keepin’ the craft in Craft Beer

These hand-screened ties pay homage to the three key elements that turn water into liquid gold: Hops, Malt, and Barley.

One-woman show Bethany Shorb crafts these in her Detroit studio—the Cyberoptix Tie Lab. Then ships them out (with a little help), lovingly wrapped and packaged, ready to be gifted to your favorite beer geek. Yes, they wear ties. Once a year-ish?

Shout out to Friend of the Ümlaut Brookelynn Morris who spotted ‘em at Maker Faire Detroit. Cheers!
