Default Need help with a brewery logo.

So I have been trying to figure out a brewery logo in my free time, I started brewing in Feb of 2009, and shortly after that I wanted to devise a logo for labels, however, I cannot for the life of me come up with a concept I like, or that is simple enough to place on a lbottle label.

I am looking for some suggestions and conceptual ideas that I can run with.

My brewery name is Broken Glass Brewery, and for the life of me I am unable to come up with something cool yet simple...

...here are a couple of concepts that I worked on, but I don't really like, and probably wouldn't look good on a label.

Is it broken glass as in a pint glass, shards on the ground or in a window.

I would play with an image of a glass that is already broken and full of beer, and not a breaking glass. The first says"tough" the second says "accident prone".

Agreed, but making it into a CGI format has been challenging. That's really where the issue has been, I can take a pint glass fill it with beer break it and take a photo of it, but how does that work on a label?

This is my dilemma.

I think the second from last one could work with a bit of tweaking. Envision it on clear label stock. You print two colors (one the black for the letters, the other white) and leave the spots where the glass is broken as clear.

What do people know about usable clear label stock. I have thought of this before but have not found usable stock.

I have seen those images myself, but once again those are really detailed photos. I don't know how to incorporate those into a logo.

You could do something like this. I just threw this together, but make it look like the text is breaking the bottle.
