Old Peculiar Ale Label
 
Here's my Old Peculiar label. That's Gabby Hayes an old western actor whom always played "Peculiar" characters on screen. Used a nice weathered metal for the background, and kept it simple. Thoughts...

It's ensures not insures. :)

Also, it's 'interesting' not 'intresting'

MVKTR2 06-09-2008 08:55 PM

well thanks for the spelling lesson! :)

Makes me feel a bit stupid... considering I know both of those! Oh well:o

I obviously pay more attention to the artwork over the spelchekin, eye kan honestly say I wuzn't "interested" in "ensuring" the proper spelin!

Other than the spelling issues, I like the look of it. Who's the old guy in the picture? Looks familiar like I should know him.

Cheers :mug:

Is yours a clone of the real brew which already bears this name? or Did you not know there was a beer called Old Peculiar out there already?

I actually ghosted the guys name on the label below/right of the pic. He's Gabby Hayes, always played an old cantankerous oddball mostly in westerns... one might actually call him "Peculiar". I've always loved the character he played.

Yes the bier is a clone of Old Peculiar. If you're intrested I ordered an extract kit from www.ebrew.com. Added 1lb of oats, 6 oz. molasses, and 2 lbs Maris Otter plus specialty malts in a partial mash. Can't remember the specifics of the specialty grains. I'll try. 1/3 lb Roasted Barley, 1/3 lb Crystal 60, and 1 lb Crystal 120.

Clemson 55

I'm a Bama fan, what do ya think about that first game of the season. Either Clemson gets a fairly easy win by 14-20 points or Bama wins a close one. Bama should be either equal or better along both lines of scrimmage. As important as that is, it's close. Bad news is it's not so close in other areas where Clemson outclasses with pure talent. For instance Bama will have the weakest LB core in the whole SEC. I expect Clemson to attack that weakness especially in the passing game, TE's and crossing patterns. But hey Bama has the advantage in the coaching department I just doubt they have the horses to beat a Clemson team that should win the ACC this year. They will if Tommy and Co. can keep from performing the usual mid-late season brain fart!

Well anyway maybe I'm wasting everyone's time... I've been addicted to College FB alot longer than I've been a bier geek! (Yes I'm convinced I'm Addicted to Alabama Football... been a rough few years!)

Much like the great philosophical questions...

To be or not to be?
Which came first, chicken or egg?

I propose....

Is it thread hijacking if you started the thread?

Besides I'm an addict... I can't help it ;)
