Default Brew Label Critique Needed

So as an architect, i have some graphic background. Just wondering what some seasoned and unseasoned brewers thought of my labels. These are first drafts but any input is welcome. Thanks all, I appreciate all your posts even being a intermediate level brewer.

Cheers!

I love the label, except the %Alc/IBU looks and location. It's black in both and kind of catches the eye. So it distracts from the rest of the label. make it a softer color, like the rest of the label, and place it in a more discrete location. Other than that it's great.

I think I'd capitalize the 1st letter of each word for the name of the brew, IE: California Common, same for your brewery name & location. I also noticed that the streetlamp is, well, in the street. Just seems out of place there; maybe move it to the sidewalk? Other than those 2 things, I like both labels. Regards, GF.
