The B.L.A.S.T. Vessel Exchange is a vibrant idea for a museum that explores an age-old passion shared by millions everywhere in the world,enjoying a drink. From the evening glass intended for relaxation,the pitcher while enjoying the sport of the day,to the weekend pint at the pub,almost everyone enjoys a good drink. The B.L.A.S.T. Museum is intended to be revered as a superior cultural institution,museum,and experience.
The acronym B.L.A.S.T. is derived from the words beer,liquor,alcohol,and spirits with a mission to give educational expansion to people’s understanding of drinking reasons and its importance and influence among and within civilizations,dynasties,and cultures. Our educational mission encompasses geography and culture,history,and environment primarily through art and incorporates other aspects such as food,sports,painting,literature,sculpture,and music to reinforce the impact of beer,alcohol,and wine on politics,religion,and economics. The B.L.A.S.T. Museum diligently engages and examines all regions of the world and attempts to enlighten traditions,celebrations,and rituals that culminate unique taste,flavor,texture,and design. The B.L.A.S.T. Museum makes grand attempt to encompass all drinking aspects from the seriousness of proper etiquette to humor associated with bingeing.
The primary goal of the B.L.A.S.T. Museum is to educate the general public about the significance and importance of beer and wine to the world through its influence of politics,religion,and economics. Grounded in fact,displays,exhibits,and exhibitions seek to promote a new respect for and reason to understand why people drink and why it may not be so bad. While attempting to dispel premature notion and myth with giving the visitor a wonderful experience, seminars and demonstrations focus and highlight tasting,food pairing,the microbrew process,wine creation,ingredients,and a host of other related areas on the subject.
Being that the subject of drinking is a very complicated and often frustrating,the awareness and education of physical and mental health risk,alcoholism,and law is of great priority and is addressed in such manner. The B.L.A.S.T. Museum does not seek to promote,influence or entice individual habit,attitude,and or behavior considered unsatisfactory to others and upholds that everyone should always think respectfully,be accountable,and act responsibly. In grace we understand that not so joyful situations do occur as a result of drinking,ranging from drinking and driving to child abuse,causing grief and often trauma. The B.L.A.S.T. Museum deeply expresses empathy and sympathy for all who suffer through tragedy. The B.L.A.S.T. Museum also supports the community in the form of workshops and literacy programs that focus on the disease of alcohol dependency and alcohol law and urge drinkers to do so responsibly. The B.L.A.S.T. Museum attempts to collectively represent the broadest spectrum of human achievement at the highest level of quality while in service of the public in accordance with the highest of professional standards,ethics,and the law.
