Unfortunately this isn’t a long lost installment in the Harry Potter literary universe*, just the 2018 Beer Bike theme for Rice University’s Graduate Student Association.
Beer Bike is a tradition at Rice University where alumni and current students come together to participate in friendly relay competition of chugging and bike racing. Back when the legal drinking age was 18, the chuggers drank beer and even though all teams have transitioned to water, spectators of the race keep up the tradition. Each year, the teams choose themes that parody current pop culture references or either aspect of the event (eg drinking or biking). I wanted this shirt design to feature a little of both, and set the new drinking/biking mascots into the Hogwart’s crest of Harry Potter lore.

*JK Rowling has been quite firm that the series is officially over but she hasn’t said anything about not opening a brewpub franchise.
