No offense, but a lot of your posts seem very "beginner" (Nothing wrong with that). But maybe learn A LOT more about brewing and practice a lot more before worrying about labels and names and trying to sell your beer!

Even though I don't like the word Washingtonian it will make sense to someone who is "local". You can't go anywhere without seeing that damn magazine.

Didn't mean to offend you, sorry you took it that way. I was just trying to offer some realistic viewpoints. A lot of guys come on here and immediately start talking about selling beer with no idea how much work, start up money, Permits, licensing it actually takes. Not to mention the skill level / ability to consistently re-produce the same beers that your customers will be expecting.

I didn't mean anything negative when I say your posts seemed "beginner". I simply meant that it seems like you're mostly still starting out with brewing, as am I after a year and a half, on a brewing for money scale.

Again, sorry if I offended you, it was not my intentions to be harsh or judgmental. I was just trying to offer some reality. Have you looked into the licensing and permits required to sell you beer? I'm assuming you're aware you can't just walk up to a bar and start selling it.

IrregularPulse may have hit the nail on the head and said some things that others of us might have been thinking. We all have visions of grandeur at times and thats just fine. Coming up with labels for homebrew are just fine too (though, as he said, the beer is the more important thing) and if you enjoy coming up with them, get to it - have fun with it, don't stress.

But the commercial side of brewing is a whole different ball game and honestly, coming from a Graphic Designer, if you ARE a commercial business, the best thing to do may be to hire a designer and have professional logo/labels produced.

At any rate, this book linked below is a good read and can put the costs into prospective (just remember those were costs years ago - imagine what they could be now).

Beer School

It's written by the founders of Brooklyn Brewery.

Oh, and by the way, you may not have looked into this, but (at least in jersey) you need a brewery license just to make the beer commercially which I heard will run you like $10,000 and than another license to distribute which is multitudes more - not sure how it works in DC though.

You dont have to post if you dont want too. You really dont. Its not on topic and really just not kind. Yes I have looked and I am not going to layout my business plan for your justification. Im not.
I just wanted help with my label and beer names and for those who did Thank you very much.
