For the past thirteen years, the image of Evereman has been scattered throughout Atlanta as an iconic image. Evereman symbolizes unity and cooperation for all in the city and beyond. This is why we reached out to Evereman artist, Jay Wiggins, to carve tap handles for our brewery. We resonate with the Evereman symbol and how it parallels to all of our individual projects, creations, and relationships.

 How did you get started as an Atlanta artist?

 I moved here as a 19-year-old kid coming to the big city from a small North Carolina town, and pretty early on I started doing street art, mostly in Midtown. Atlanta was a lot smaller when I came here. As a little kid I said I was gonna be an artist and Atlanta has allowed me [to do that]. I can’t imagine a better scenario for myself.

At the time I was part of an underground art gallery called the Blue Rat gallery – that was a group of artists that put on shows. We rented several buildings on Peachtree in Midtown, where it was a very supportive community. I’ve been part of the underground ever since.

 What’s the story behind the creation of Evereman?

 My son at age 10 came into the shop one day and wanted to make a stencil. So we did out of that little face I made and started painting the face on wood scraps. And we’d paint Evereman and on the weekend we’d go out to and put the Evereman around town. And I just became enamored by it.

What do you like about the craft brewery scene?

I love beer and I love that Atlanta now has craft beer. And I appreciate very much that Monday Night supports the local art scene because it’s a community builder. I think about 98% of artists drink beer.

What did you think about the tap handle project?

I loved the tap handle project. Wood is the material I know, so I was given the cast handle to work with, but I’m more of a sculptor than a painter, so I thought I’d rather make a wooden one, since that’s more of my element. Painting isn’t my thing, making a thing is my thing.

Do you see a connection between the Evereman philosophy and craft beer industry?

I do in terms of the philosophy around the idea of local, of something that you can recognize within your community, and the idea of more “get out there and do it yourself.” I think there’s this emerging generation of independent and local. I’d much rather know where my money’s going. The whole idea of Evereman is all of us together cooperating instead of competing.

How has Evereman empowered or changed the Atlanta community?

I’ve often thought the image was something that when Atlanta sees it, it makes us feel like it’s our community and our home. This idea of an image that those of us that live here recognize as our own.

There must be hundreds of people that are gifting art now, but the term that has stuck is free art. To me it’s gift art. From my experience I’ve met a lot of wonderful people doing it, and I’ve always opened up my shop to the community, hopefully to inspire people to do their own thing and clearly that’s happened and it’s really cool.

The phrase “Go big or go home” has become a part of our American psyche. But without an ultimate goal in mind, what’s the point? Sometimes we have to train ourselves to intentionally think smaller, for the greater good. Our small ideas, small homebrews, and small garage gatherings turned into something we never thought possible. Our CEO Jeff had the pleasure of explaining this phenomenon to TEDxGeorgiaTech in the short video shown below.

Jeff, as well as our two other founders, Joel and Jonathan, did not expect their Monday evening brewing sessions to turn into one of the largest breweries in Atlanta. Our main focus was to collaborate and grow our relationships through the medium of beer. Nothing more, nothing less. What once was a group of 50 people in Jeff’s yard doing just this turned into taproom tasting tours with hundreds of people on average and a production quota of over 5 million bottles to be brewed this year. As for the beer, each brew speaks for itself with the awards received from national beer competitions. Such as the gold medal for the Bourbon Barrel Drafty Kilt at the Great American Beer Festival and the silver medal for the Laissez-Faire Cabernet Barrel-aged Wheat Wine at the World Beer Cup this spring.

None of this would have been possible unless Monday Night started small. There were never big expectations from these fun nights in Jeff’s garage, which has made our journey into the beer industry that much more rewarding. A camaraderie of friends, family, and guests were always the most important aspect, and this hasn’t changed since we started brewing in 2006.

Ray Geir and his quirky sQuishiepuss images are a quintessential asset to Atlanta’s contemporary art scene. His hot pink paint and googly-eyed cartoons have made appearances all throughout East Atlanta shops, as well as Voodoo donuts, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and our very own office wall. Ever since Ray moved to Atlanta he’s been nonstop busy with art shows, collaborations, and mural paintings. Lucky for us, the sQuishiepuss creator was more than happy to share his thoughts about art, Atlanta, and the Ameri-can-do attitude.

 What do you like about Monday Night and craft breweries in general?

It was a real eye opener the first time I went to Monday Night to see how devoted they are to collaborate with artists to connect to their community. I’ve noticed people wanna use the word hipster as a diss and when people refer to hipster they refer to created stuff, but I don’t find that hipster. I find that as an American way of life, this, “I’m gonna build this thing out of nothing” idea. Monday Night has that American can-do attitude that gets me excited, and that attitude is so strong in Atlanta.

Why did you choose to establish roots in Atlanta?

My best friend moved down here when he was 16 and I came back and forth to Atlanta to visit him. Nothing struck me about this city until 7 years ago when I saw all this stuff happening. When I’m in Atlanta there’s always this passion behind it. It really felt like the people that lived here owned this city. And everyone has these projects they’re excited about. This spirit of Atlanta made me want to move. You can come here and start a project and be successful at it. People really care about Atlanta and there’s something really powerful in that.

What are some of your current and upcoming projects?

Current projects are the Phoenix fest pop-up events. I’m working with an art collective called Dear Bear Wolf to do mini versions of their Phoenix fest events like 24-hour live painting. I have three of those planned for the summer. I’m also doing a mural for Wix in their Manhattan office, and making an action figure on the side. As well as an artist collaboration called “sQuishiepuss Monster Mash Art Show” where I start 40 paintings and then pass them off to 40 other artists to finish. Other than that I have a coloring book I’ll be releasing through Dear Bear Wolf for the holiday and then I’m finished with the year.

What did you like about painting the Monday Night office mural?

It gave me a whole new sandbox to play in. I can do the things I normally do but in a different subject matter with the Monday Night core values, which were hilarious and unexpected. It was super refreshing and nice.

Our core values (Have Fun, Make it Happen, Embrace Mistakes, Fight for Excellence, and Honor People) are represented within Ray’s mural with the characters Bryan Adams, Captain America, Homer Simpson, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Care Bears respectively.

What was the inspiration behind your Monday Night tap handles?

That was probably, to be honest, one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I’ve never painted on the surface of something rigid. I love taking projects like that because I try to find ways to challenge myself. I ended up fitting things like the sQuishiepuss faces into the tie shape of the handle. It’s always interesting working with an odd shape and seeing what you can make out of it.

Have you received any reactions from the artwork you did for Monday Night?

After I posted the mural my email box exploded with people wanting me to do Super Hero stuff like Captain America. I saw this big burst of emails and projects coming in, so it’s beneficial for me, and [Monday Night] gets that recognition. I also got a bunch of text messages in about seeing my tap handle. I received a lot of positive emails and compliments.

What similarities and connections do you see between the beer and art communities?

It’s what people do with their thoughts. I buy hot pink paint and turn it into something that didn’t exist before. [Similarly] Monday Night was an idea, it started in a garage, and they created something that didn’t exist at that point. In a short period of time it turned into a brewery. Maybe that defines art? I don’t know, but having nothing and turning that into something, and having that something be what people react to and love and support, that’s a cohesive idea that runs through both categories.

And doing it locally in Atlanta because you still want the community involved. I try to work with the community and as many people as I can because I feel that’s important. We are Atlanta, we need each other, and we should want to be around each other. That’s the biggest thing, and at no point should the two ever be separate. It’s everyone’s responsibility to make their surroundings a better place.
