Default My first post!

Because I am a designer I feel like I can contribute to this post with more confidence then the actual beer posts so here we go...

While you are using a German Black letter, counter culture has pulled this font away from being purely German in nature.

Think heavy metal bands, skating companys, surfing, things on the edge. So I think if you grunged the look up some it would maybe fit both your brewery name and have a reference to your heritage. Not sure if that fits your personality, but there's a rationalization for what your doing.

Interesting point. Are you saying to fatigue the label a bit?

Orfy, thanks for the comments as well. I will look into that as well.

Just remember Orfy, our national language was almost German. It was decided by one vote, and thats history. English is also a germanic language, it only fits.

I would make the yellow ring a litter skinnier and the picture a little bigger.
EDIT: or at least the picture of Uncie Sam a little bigger.

Because at the time, there were a lot of German American families in the colonies. If I remember history, there were two german imigrations, one very early in the the Grand experiment and one dureing the 1900's. The vote for a national language actualy came about to standize buisness relations between the states and the communities in those states. Language as a barrier to trade wasn't good for buisness and so a national language was was voted on. At the time there was still a lot of anti-english setiment as well, and a lot of patroits spoke both languages, In my opinion, if I were alive at the time, being a vet. myself, there was quit an argument for a different language. But hey, like I said, its history.

I like the look of it a lot.
It seems a little unnecessary to have the IBU's listed on the Apfelwein label
