Philippe Starck, the French design extraordinaire who have lent his touches to countless products across a wide spectrum of disciplines (including hotels for 30 years now!), together with Sebastien Blaquière of Brasserie d’Oit unveiled Starck Beer With OLT. Yes. You heard that right. Philippe Starck can now add beer to his illustrious portfolio. And yes. It is the Starck. The crisp, golden adult beverage is artisan-ally brewed with precise dosages and composition, using carefully selected raw materials, such as malts from organic farming, hops and water from the Boraides of the Aubrac region, to result in a certified organic beer. The beer is than bottled in a contemporary, striking and yet minimalistic glass bottle designed by, you guessed it, the celebrated designer himself.
