Default One Putt Twelve

A friend of mine "commissioned " me to make 10 gallons of beer. I ask him what style and he said at least 2 cases if IPA. So while that is fermenting I needed to come up with labels as I only have . . . .two months LOL.

Well - I came up with this. It was the last golf tournament of the year and he is a good golfer (14 handicap). Problem was he took a twelve on the 1st hole.

This is not complete yet but the first rough draft of his label. Still tinkering.

Wow, imagine having to look at that (and remember the nightmare) each time you crack open a beer! It's good to have friends.

I hope you made a bad beer for him, you know, to reflect his golf game. If I ever got a one-putt 12 I would kill myself.

I think 2 six-packs would get the message across nicely

A 12? WOW!!! I thought after 8 they just gave it to you. Are you sure he is going to be able to find his pie hole to pour the beer in? LOL
