OK, I have to ask. Why Lacrosse sticks (a very Canadian game) on an English brown ale?

I'd swear that label was designed by the (also very Canadian) McKenzie brothers. Take off eh!

You need to feather the bottle image so that it doesn't have the hard edge on it. Maybe make the brewery name a bit larger and perhaps add soem shadow or soemthing so that it stands out more.

Otherwise it looks good.

The lacrosse sticks are because my brewery name is Woodstick Brewery (from the old wooden sticks, and my high school lacrosse rivalry was called the Woodstick classic).

I have no clue who the McKenzie brothers are, never even been to Canada, but there wasn't a whole lot to my design.

I will fool around with the bottle layer and text. I am not too good at creating images (I'm a photographer so adjusting levels I can do)

Heh don't feel old. I'm a rookie brewer so I still have much to learn.

They just had there 24 year (two-four) reunion show and I swear one of them said in an interview that they were working on a two four movie.

Hey Hoser, pass me a beer.

Take off eh!
