Miscellaneous 05.19

Dear friends,

For this month’s Miscellaneous — Athletics’ no-frills round-up of the cultural items that inspire us each month — we’re spotlighting the launch of Kingston Standard Brewery, founded by Athletics founding partner and Creative Lead Matt Owens. The brewery, which formally opens Memorial Day weekend, seeks to celebrate the rich history of Kingston and the surrounding Hudson Valley through high-quality, small-batch beers. We heartily recommend a trip up the Hudson River to the beautiful city of Kingston, New York to enjoy a few fresh oysters washed down with a crisp glass of Schwarzbier. In the meantime, follow Kingston Standard on Instagram for first notice on new brews and brewery news.

Stay tuned for more editions of Miscellaneous in the coming months. Interested in contributing? Send us an email!

Poetic Fragment
“I have built a house in the middle of the Ocean
Its windows are the rivers flowing from my eyes
Octopi are crawling all over where the walls are
Hear their triple hearts beat and their beaks peck against 
the windowpanes.”
— From “Ocean of Earth” by Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918)

In Solidarity,

Athletics
