While nudity and disappearing bits on beer labels is hardly new, a trio of Australians have launched the latest version with their new Skinny Blonde. One of the three, Jarrod Taylor, is an artist who designed the label and another, Hamish Rosser, is a chemical engineer who figured how to make the skinny blonde’s bikini disappear using a chemical process similar to disappearing ink.
The three are from Bondi, a suburb of Sydney, and formed the company Brother’s Ink to make and market the beer. They began brewing in Taylor’s kitchen three years ago. The third owner is Richie Harkham, who’s a wine maker, actor and producer.Hamish Rosser is also the drummer for Australian band, The Vines.
They describe the beer on their website as follows. “Skinny Blonde contains no preservatives, chemical additives or animal products whatsoever so its OK for vegans. It’s 100% Australian.
Unlike most beers brewed in Australia Skinny Blonde is 100% Australian owned and operated. And it’s 100% Beer. Skinny Blonde is 5.2% alc/vol, low-carb and as tasty as its name sake.”
