Default New Summer Ale Label

Brewed a Cascades & Orange Pale Ale yesterday so put together a label for the tap handle. What do you think?

"hot rod" was the first thing I got too. I like the chrome look of the "summer ale".

Nah...totally different. Nothing against T&A, but the feel of the first one is just "cool". It makes you think you're under a palm tree in your tricked out hot rod with your long board in the trunk...sippin a beer waitin' for the waves.

A totally summer kind of feel.

Just my opinion.

Noontime, you're right. This was brewed to drink all day long by the pool, just soaking up the sun. I'm going with the first one.
Thanks, for the input.

Looking good. What kind of software are you using? I am waiting for BBC to finish my logo, then I am hoping to create some labels even if only for the taps.

I use Paint Shop Pro 5. I've had it for years and it's pretty easy to use, though a bit limited. I had Coy send me layered images, so I can pull what ever part of the original logo they did and use it with other pictures, like the palm trees or the girl.

Well you put them together well...they both have great composition.

Thanks, Noontime, I appreciate that, especially coming from an artist like yourself. Great site, by the way. Really nice work.
