Vintage Vinyl: A Toast to Maine’s Blue Planet Graphics

Tony Kindelspire is digital content editor of Sign & Digital Graphics & WRAPS magazines.

This week’s Vintage Vinyl video comes to us from the great state of Maine which—previously unbeknownst to us here at WRAPS central—boasts a thriving craft brewery scene. According to the nonprofit Brewers Association, a craft beer industry advocacy group based just up the road from WRAPS central in Boulder, Colorado, Maine has 77 craft breweries which, given its population, equates to 7.6 breweries per capita—that’s fifth in the nation. Of course, here in Colorado we have 334 craft breweries which equates to 8.4 per capita—third in the nation—but we lift a glass to Maine, which also has the Maine Brew Bus, which has been ferrying beer lovers in the Pine Tree State to and fro since 2012.

This video features Mabel, which is bus No. 2 for the shuttle company, and it’s being wrapped by Portland-based Blue Planet Graphics’ owner, Chris Hodges. Nice job on the video, too, by videographer Nate Bowman of Bowman Productions. We here in Colorado are impressed. Prosit!
