Peel the labels off – get some perspective – follow the clues and hunt the treasure!
The North Yorkshire Moors teem with myths, legends and fantastical creatures. Most famously, the Gytrash: a legendary black dog that was said to haunt lonely roads awaiting travelers – but could also be benevolent and guide lost travelers to the right road. And, of course, a visiting American werewolf that eventually made its way to London…
Claudia Bowler’s can art also features Count Dracula, who famously arrived in the UK at Whitby. Dracula’s true vampiric nature is displayed (or not!) in the mirror held by the Merman of Skinningrove – who was said to have come ashore in the village in 1530.
Werewolf vs Gytrash is the seventh can in our ‘Bigger Picture’ project. Bigger Picture is a celebration of the legends, myths and fantastical creatures of Yorkshire. It’s also a treasure map, that will build over nine vastly different 440ml cans of beer and will point to one location in Yorkshire where a serious bounty is cached. We will launch the next beer in the series every month-6 weeks.
