Rusty Teams Up With St. Archer Brewery On A Limited Collection Celebrating Josh Kerr And San Diego
Two San Diego brands, iconic surf brand Rusty and fast growing Saint Archer Brewery, have released a collection with Josh Kerr, exclusively for San Diego retailers. Josh Kerr is a long time Rusty team rider and one of the most electric surfers in the world today. He is arguably the best aerial surfer on the planet; perennial top 10 surfer on the ASP; and recent winner of Chippa Wilson’s “Flight to the Flats” aerial contest.
In addition, Josh is a partner in the new upstart Saint Archer Brewery. Located right around the corner from the Rusty Surfboard factory in San Diego, Saint Archer Brewery is a craft beer experience when art and science meet. The company consists of a unique blend of world class brewers, artists, musicians, surfers, skateboarders and snowboarders. In a very short time, Saint Archer has achieved success in an industry that takes years to make inroads.
With Rusty and Saint Archer both from San Diego and, Kerr now living in North County, it made sense to put together a fun collaboration with all things San Diego. The limited collection features Kerr’s boardshort, a pocket tee shirt, and snap back hat in native San Diego Chargers colors of navy and gold. Product can be found at Sun Diego, Bird Rock Surf Shop, Surf Ride, Rusty Del Mar, Rusty La Jolla, Hanger 94, Mission Surf among others.
The collaboration was launched officially last night at the Saint Archer Brewery. Josh Kerr and brand founder, Rusty Preisendorfer were seen behind the bar pouring beers for those in attendance.
Rusty is a brand with its roots firmly planted in the pursuit of the surfing lifestyle. By 1984, Rusty Preisendorfer had already established himself as a young legend in the surfboard shaping world. When the Rusty brand officially launched in 1985, there were few people who didn’t recognize the R-dot logo on surfboards across the globe. With the initial goal of making the best surfboards on the planet, it soon became clear that the tremendous demand for Rusty boards and recognition of the name would easily translate to apparel. What began with t-shirtsquickly grew into a comprehensive collection driven by authentic surf roots, progressive product, and the signature R-dot. Decades later, Rusty continues to be an iconic brand in surf culture, featuring a product mix for guys and girls that includes boardshorts, hoodies, tees, knits, dresses and accessories; all available at leading surf shops worldwide. Inspired by art, fashion, music and design, Rusty delivers surf products that represent the classic, casual beach lifestyle defined by the risk-taking spirit and irreverence of today’s youth.
