The Chairman

On 11/11/11 in collaboration with Half Acre Brewing Company, we released the commemorative Lumpen 20th Anniversary beer called The Chairman.

The Chairman was a very limited release. It’s an Imperial Red Ale created to remember the men and women who worked on Lumpen magazine and became Chairmen of the Boring Theoretical Party (BTP). The Boring Theoretical Party began in the 1990’s. It was Lumpen magazine’s response to the boring, and uh, theoretically inclined armchair lefties. We started a “Worker’s Newspaper” edited by Chairman Thar, our beloved leader. Our symbols were the Armadillo and the  Hoe. We had a theme song, a salute (raised fist while yawning), and we promoted that everyone should be the Chairman of their own Party.

The three different labels for the beer were designed by Michael Freimuth and collaborators:

Big Armadillo – Jing Wei
Chinese Characters – Michelle Villasenor
