Default has anyone re-created the White House Honey Ale label?

has anyone re-created the label for the white house brews?



SWMBO asked me to brew this up for her election-night party (she's a policy wonk... this is DC after all) and i thought i'd go all the way and print up some labels. i could whip this up in Photoshop relatively quickly, but thought i should check first to see if anyone has already done it.

as an aside: what is that squiggly thing at the top of the label? looks like a cinderella-type horse-drawn carriage, or some sort of a family herald/coat-of-arms... maybe it's the symbol for the white house kitchen?

Squiggly thing looks like a cross between a bee and a hop cone.

Dont know of anyone who has a finished batch, but a friend is brewing this right now.

I didn't create it. I just got it off a website. So yes that's the only resolution I have. Good enough for just playing around.

Thanks POAS and B_Anderson. I've been drinking this stuff for a week. I don't need labels for myself, I just write on the cap, but I want to give this stuff out to some friends and I think they'll subliminally enjoy the beer more with a nice label on the bottle.
