I like it. The font is "just fancy enough" that it looks cool AND you can still read it.

What are you going to print these on? I haven't done a round label because I'm too lazy to try and cut out a bunch of circles.

Very cool. I like the colors the font. The blue will really stand out on a brown bottle. I'm sure your brother will love it.

That's a pretty sweet label. Very classic looking.

The one thing I would say is what if the two circles around the outside had the same rough edges the text had?

looking good i agree with clemson make all of the circles inside and out a little "rough/unrefined" it will help it work better as a whole. Very nice choice on the blue that will look GREAT on the brown bottles.

Thanks guys! I chose blue because it's a pretty highly hopped ale, and here in the uk at least, blue labels denote a highly hopped beer : )
