Pieces of work by Natalya:

  • Watson's Corner

    Welcome to Watson’s Corner, a place for craft beer stories & conversation.

    Beer is so much more than just what’s in your glass. It’s more than its style or the numbers on the label.

    Craft beer is made by passionate people with stories to share. It combines art, science, business and branding. It encourages experimentationpushes boundaries and makes a statement.

    These are the stories we’ll discover & discuss in Watson’s Corner.
