Default First few labels I've done

So I'm to the point that I'm going to start brewing my own recipes and trying to tweak them until I get them where I want them. I've got 4 of the 8 labels done so far. I brewed the first batch this past weekend and will probably hold off on doing any more labels until I get closer to brewing the other beers. I did the labels using Gimp which I had a little experience with. I watched a few tutorial videos to help get me started.

Cool labels. Not to bust your balls but traditionally its India pale ale, not Indian

Yeah I know. Chief Lil' Ear was the SWMBO's nickname growing up and she wanted me to work it into a beer. So I decided to do an American IPA and change India to Indian. It's a play on words. Your not the first person to mention that to me.

Still cool. Hey it's your labels, do what you want. I had just enough beer in me last night to be "that guy"

I created another label for the beer I'm brewing for this winter. I'm planning on doing a winter warmer with hazelnut and rosemary. I struggled with the name for a while but finally settled on Fennario. It's a reference to the Grateful Dead song Dire Wolf. Once I had the wolf, I decided it would be appropriate to go over the top with the label. There's a lot going on and it took some work to get everything to mesh together.

I thought the American Indian Pale Ale name was an excellent idea.

Ditto. I liked the play on words.

I like the labels, doing pretty good for just "watching a few youtube videos" haha. I have a few questions, why is your "Gray Top" Logo sideways? Why did you decided to go with displaying your brewery name a different way in each of the labels and omit it on the last one? Looking good! Keep it up
