Using Harp Lager cans, this artwork by Leroy pays homage to one of Northern Ireland's most famous lagers, capturing its essence in a one-of-a-kind piece. Harp is a staple in the world of Irish beers. Its history is a story of innovation and adaptation within the Irish brewing tradition. From its inception as Guinness's answer to the lager revolution, Harp has carved out its own distinct place in the beer world, celebrated for its crisp taste and Irish roots.

Harp Lager was first brewed in 1960 by the Great Northern Brewery in Dundalk, a response to the growing popularity of pale lagers in Ireland and the UK. It was developed by Guinness, marking their foray into the lager market. The creation of Harp allowed Guinness to compete with the increasing import of foreign lagers. The name "Harp" was chosen as a symbol of Ireland, echoing the Brian Boru harp, a national emblem. The label features this harp, reinforcing its Irish identity.

Harp Lager is celebrated for its crisp, clean taste with a subtle balance of bitterness and sweetness. It's a pale lager with a light colour and a clean finish, making it a popular choice for those who prefer a lighter beer. It offers a smooth, well-rounded finish, making it a staple in the world of Irish lagers.

Leroy's work has traveled from Larne to Mombasa, and now, through, to you. Each map is a story of love for beer and geography. Each beer can used is personally drunk by Leroy himself.

Specifications: This mounted artwork provides a minimalistic and modern aesthetic. Easy to hang or stand alone. The art features a 12 cm x 17 cm mount opening, perfectly displaying the intricately hand-cut Harp Lager can map.
