Urban Artifact’s Variant Animals – A Cheat Sheet

If you’ve been watching closely as Urban Artifact releases each of their Midwest Fruit Tart Ales, you’ll have noticed that they also like to do variants of these beers each time.  I mean… they like variants a lot.  You might have also noticed that each of these variant bottles contains an animal on the label, which denotes which variant flavors are found within.  The nerdy side of me couldn’t stand not organizing these animals into a “cheat sheet” of sorts…

Each time the animal is used, he/she picks up a little personality from the base beer – but they’re always there, loyaly using their likeness to remind us what we’re about to drink!
