Default Big Als' Blackberry Brew 2008


This year's label. I think its an improvement over last year's label (below) and fits in better with our overall feel our labels are starting to get (Field Hand Hefeweizen)


Last year's label

Thoughts?

I don't like the blackberries on the new one so much. Perhaps if the outline was darker it'd be better? But other than that I like the update.

Did you use GIMP to make those? Cool labels.

I like the blackberries on the bottom label better.

The "bar" across the top is better on the upper one. IMO...

I like the dark corners on the upper label.

And the thorns on the upper label are cooler too.

Nice labels.

I third the blackberries comments. Otherwise much improved.

If the name is Big Al, then the apostrophe should be before the S, not after. . . if the name is Big Als then it's fine.
