Default Finally, labels for my beer.

I used to label my beer, but got a little turned off by the work it takes to remove the labels. My wife got some free time and made labels for my brew. It took a couple hours to label the 250 or so bottles I have. We used regular paper and used gluestick to affix them. When the labels get wet, they come right off, no residue, no fuss. Hooray! I think it makes the beer taste better. You know, presentation counts for something.

Now I don't have to answer questions like, "What is batch #27? What is batch #34? Do you have any Pale Ale? When did you brew this one?" It's all right there in front of my guests' faces.

If anyone is ever looking for a nicely designed label, I'd be happy to create a template. For a reasonable price of, say, a sixer of your favorite, I'll even print them off and mail them to you. I'm a graphic designer / web designer by trade, so I just happen to have all the software and knowhow.

I like Kim's Chocolate Porter #31's label. "You can't get beer from a water fountain" That's awsome, and it gives me an idea about a cool tap. You might not be able to get beer from a water fountain...but nobody said you couldn't turn a water fountain into a -beer- fountain.
