I do think that the banner would like a *teensy* bit better if it were just slightly lower - it doesn't look quite right where it is, obscuring the "Co." Just a wee bit higher.

The slogan, too... I know what you mean, but really, the first thing that "going down" brings to mind is *not* sinking to the bottom of the ocean. The fact that it's referring to the person who is actively going down and tasting... let's just say that I think that slogan might go better on a girlie drink

It's still an awesome looking label, absolutely top-notch.

Hmm... point taken. I guess in my neck of the woods, guys "goes down" and girl's "give head".

I began talking to my wife about moving the banner to where it does not obscuring the "Co." but was abruptly cut off. Something about artistic expression, blah, blah, blah. I could tell that it she was prep'ed for me to say something about it by the way she snapped back... so I left it alone.

The funny thing about all this is I have no plans on bottling beer ever again... kegging is too damn convienient. Although the design would make a killer t-shirt...

it's all about marketing in the beer biz. You could bottle the beer and slap those labels on and garauntee that you will sell it.

As long as the brew is halfway decent.

I don't have any delusions of ever getting to do this professionally, but as in all our endeavors, we try to present ourselves as if we've already made it. You never know who's out there watching, looking for the next big thing to snatch up and bring to the market!

I'm glad to see you went with the Davy Jones Lager suggestion.

What about "Going overboard never tasted so good" or something to that effect.

You should also make a Full Fathom Five themed beer!

Personally, I'd stick with the "going down" tagline. I think it's perfect.

Another vote for keeping it "going down"

Default re:

Jesus you have awsome labels. There is so much there to look at.

Once you start printing them off, any way I can get my hands on one of those labels?

BTW, leave the banner where it is, looks good there.

As for the "going down" logo, leave it. I foresee many a good laughs over that.
