First Label for First Brew
 
Inspired by Buford.

Still in secondary on the brew, so no idea on ABV, just a placeholder.

We just moved to Arizona and a pack/herd/whatever of javelinas was the first wildlife we saw from our house, hence the name.

First Review:

Thumbs up!


Only going to brew 9999 this year?


Are you a zonie?

only if you count numbers, letters give a whole lot of additional batches.

I guess I am a zonie now, but no, coming from Seattle, so me likee me hops.

Nice job. The label has that old time look.

I also like your label. It has that 1890s sorta look.

What type of font did you use? Something standard from MS Word? Will you be using the top portion with the brewery name on all your labels?

:D I'm glad I was good for something! Rock on :mug:

From top to bottom:

Engravers Roman
Academy Engraved
Engravers MT
Copperplate Gothic Bold

I chose these because they were on my PC. Did not do a search, although dafont has some cool stuff. Planning on reusing the header and changing image & branding as required.

Where you at in AZ? Maybe we can get an exchange program going on. I live in Sierra Vista now (because of my job), but I have lived in Tucson my whole life. I go up there on my days off to see family and all. Peace out.

Nice label. Reminds me of the old AZ Wildlife handbooks. I take it that you're in Fountain Hills out north of the valley. You should see quite a bit of critters out there. Welcome to the board.

Very nice and simple. It looks great in B&W.
