Great job. I especially love the St. Patricks Day label.

The use of the Tube map has nothing to do with a dog...disappointing.

I like the Celtic symbol and shamrock on the second one though.

Don't the Brits and the Irish hate each other? You are straddling the fence...

Too much debate here, but I will add a quick note:

You are referring to the differences between the Catholic south and the Anglican (Protestant) British and Northern Ireland.

Of course, the Catholic Irish detest the way the Brits have treated them in the past. The Irish were the first slaves imported into the New World by the Brits, so it goes deeper than religion.

Well....my family is part Irish and part English, and I basically love all English, Scottish, and Irish ales so that is pretty much what I make. These two labels are only on here together cuz that's what I've made recently.

As for the tube map having nothing to do with a dog that is true, but I haven't yet developed the right images for the various dog breeds I'm using as names. I have just started brewing my own recipe's and thought dog names would go with the name of my brewery, but good label images are hard to come by; all in good time I guess.

Don't get me wrong, I like the Tube map, but not for something named after a dog. It just doesn't correlate.

I see where finding just the right dog is so important.

I'd concentrate on a Tube sounding name at the moment like Victoria Station Stout or Picadilly Circus Pale Ale then the map would have something meaningful behind it.

You can use those names. They just came off the top of my head.

I see what you're saying, but to me the tube map has more to do with the style being a traditional english ale rather than the name of the beer. What I really want is the tube map as the background and then a Bulldog in the middle of the lettering rather than the ESB.

I have an idea for you...

You can swap maps out and add a map of Stamford England instead, and it will go with the Bulldog theme more. Back in the 1200's, it was customary to fight dogs against bulls. And Lord Stamford has was walking his castle grounds one day, and witnessed two bulls fighting in a field over a female. He watched as two of the local butcher's dogs came running into the field, and both dogs attacked the bulls ferociously, and chased them through the streets of Stamford, and finally the dogs killed the bulls. Lord Stamford was amazed, and actually donated land to facilitate "Bull-Baiting". It became a huge betting sport for the area.

Of course back then, bulldogs were much different than the ones of today, but still, it would fit for you. Hey, just an idea.
