Default Crimson Ale

Here's a label I made for the Irish Red I brewed last night! Wanted this to be a bier I drink every weekend during the upcoming college football season. Only thing, I forgot to put the SEC logo on it, or my batch and abv #'s.



Schlante and Roll Tide,
Phillip

That's really cool!

I brew an Oktoberfest for my alma mater's homecoming tailgating party, and I've been trying to come up with a clever name and label for it... but to no avail.

That's really well done, but I can't say that I like it (War Eagle!)

Great label! My wife (a Bama fan) loves it. Go MSU DAWGS!
Cheers,

What ... me I see no typos!

Who's your alma mater? Just go to thier webpage or google it to get the logo/mascot and work from there! If your college is so miniscule that you can't find a copy of the logo, just find an image of what ever type of animal, weapon, etc it's named after. For instance with Alabama I could have pulled up a picture of a furious bull elephant and worked with it.

Schlante,
Phillip

The school mascot is a Colonial (American) and the school color is blue... so I'm having a hard time linking that to a German Oktoberfest beer!

Meh. Something will come up.

Not an easy one, but I have a couple of ideas. I think you could put an American flag in the background, preferably one with 13 stars and place a German character in lederhosen on the label. Just do a google image search. Another idea would be to place lederhosen on a colonialist or the school mascot. Lastly it could be the school logo placed over some kind of Bavarian/German themed pic in the background.

Schlante,
Phillip
