Sputnikfest has been fortunate to have children’s illustrator Tina Kugler, a former Manitowoc native, share her considerable talents with us in the form of an annual Sputnikfest poster. The 2102 edition, shown at right, will be available for purchase at this year's event. Here is a link for a gallery where you can view the all the previous Sputnikfest posters, hosted at Tina’s own website.
The Sputnik image has been used to sell a wide variety of products from Wi-Fi to baby clothes. The idea of a Sputnik Vodka (or “Wotka” as Pavel Checkov would say) just seems like a natural. What could be more natural when combining cold war nostalgia, Russia, and Wisconsin – than a Vodka Flavored Beer! Not sure where you can buy this stuff – but we really need to get them on board as a sponsor for Sputnikfest. Hey out there – Vodka-Flavored-Beer-People – we need to talk!
