Default Earthquake Ale

This is the label I made for my first batch. The earthquake hit during the second day of ferment.



Edited Almost Final Version

Cool idea, I might change the color of the font or add an outline to "Batches Brew". You also might want to make the big white text easier to read

I think it looks great! My only change would be to make "earthquake ale" and whatever is above it more readable. Maybe it's just too small, but I think they'd both benefit from enlargement, an outline, and/or font change. I obviously see why you chose that font, maybe it's just too small to read here.

Schlante,
Phillip

It says "Chino Hills Earthquake Ale. I tinker around with it. Thanks for the feedback.

Why the vertical/portrait layout? Using it on bombers? What are the actual dimensions?

Just being curious...

Schlante,
Phillip

I used the vertical because I copied the dimensions of a Rogue 12 oz beer. 3" x 4"

I changed the Batches Brew title to green to match the land on the bottom. It looks a little better. I enlarged Chino Hills a little, but you can read it fine in it's normal size. I'm gonna tweak it a little more and post my results later.

Going to see Batman, now that the crowds have died down, I hope.

very cool and original!

maybe a black outline or shadow around the batches brew to make it stand out?
