In 2013, Liz started with a small blog which grew into a weekly newspaper column in the Annapolis Capital. Naptown Pint is about to launch Naptown Pintcast which will be a media vehicle to interview the many players involved in this booming Mid-Atlantic industry of Craft Beer.

Joe Barsin and Liz Murphy have been friends through our mutual love of Craft beer and Communications. Below are links to past interviews on both topics.

The Creative Process of developing the Naptown Pint & Pintcast Logo

It has been an ongoing discussion between Liz, Joe and Eva Barsin on what image would capture the spirit of Naptown Pint. We knew it had to reflect Liz's point of view and beer! From a creative standpoint, we all loved the work of the 1950's Pulp fiction art along with contemporary work of Shepard Fairey. Liz also wanted to pay tribute to the the 1930's Speakeasy culture of the Prohibition. We hope you like the end result of this creative stew of ideas! We had a lot of fun working on it and look forward to the new Naptown Pintcast!
