I like it, but for some reason the nutcrackers just don't scream Christmas to me.

What are your label dimensions? What size bottle? The label seems a little tall and narrow to me. I have found 3"x4" works well on 12 oz bottles.

i agree: it has a sort of 'doll collection' feel, although nutcrackers are f'ing sweet.

the wreath is nice! i love how many labels are popping up on here right now, this is probably my favorite section of hbt.com

the red portion of the label is 3 x 4, the "BraeHaus" with Lion is approx 3/4" thick... i have it blown up pretty big, it prints out very well.

yeah the nutcracker thing is a tradition in my family, every year (since I was born) each Christmas I was given a nutcracker, I have well over 30 now...

I think I like the wreath one the most so far, the nutcracker thing is something my family would get, but it def doesn't make sense for everyone else

thanks for the input guys!

It would be far more pertinent if next year you brew a Nutcracker Brown Ale!

Pretty nice label,

Here's my one suggestion though:
Although I understand that the Lion is supposed to be tilted with the word "BraeHaus" it just looks kinda weird having the Lion like that. Now, I'm a bit picky about lions and all (I'm a fan of the Dutch soccer team, their logo is a lion much like yours), so it may be that everyone thinks it's great, but I would at least try it the other way around.
This may not be as true when it's sticking on the bottle (since you will only see the left part of the label if you look at it, thus turning your head to read the text...).

By the way, did I say nice label?!
