I usually don't bother to label, but my brother does and he has a good idea. He just labels a four pack worth of bottled beer. Drink them up first, fill with water, recap and place on the memorial shelf to great homebrews of the past. Label the four pack with your art. I use Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout four packs myself. Labels printed on a standard ink jet. Since you are only doing four, cost or labor is not a consideration.
The labels are permenant and the bottles are retired...Just like me. This was a particularly delicious and memorable batch. RIP BudBeer.
