Hehe, that's a good one. My cousin would love it.

Definitely one of my favorite Clint Eastwood movies...the label looks good. "American Pale Ale" seems just a bit small and understated though. I found a great website with free fonts listed by category. Here's the link directly to the western style fonts (3 pages of 'em). A good western style font would make it absolutely perfect.

These are all great suggestions. I can't work on it tonight but will definitely make some changes. Thanks for the link to the fonts, that's pretty cool.

That looks great. I wish I had a better imagination like most of you folks.

I swear I'm computer illiterate. I can't figure out how to download those fonts to my computer. I've had a few Elysian Pale Ales tonight though at SWMBO's company party. (That's my excuse) Anyway, made a couple changes.

Now that looks good.

If it was mine, I'd drop the abv text down near the bottom, it looks out of place on its own.

Nice work.

Great label! The spacing for the first few letters in 'American' looks much better in the second one.
