Default Sagittarius Tripel - label and packaging

Rarely post on here, but I thought this was worth sharing...

Brewed this tripel for my wife's 30th birthday, she's a Sagittarius obviously, hence the name and logo. Sagittarius is the archer for those of you who might not know, and I tossed in a heart to be all lovey dovely.

Here is the finished hang tag label:



And the final packaging:



I really liked how it turned out, very rustic. The hang tag is a nice alternative to printing and sticking on actual labels and since I plan on reusing the bottles, I don't have to worry about clean up. The paper was added as I thought it needed more to dress it up. I actually cheated and just rolled each bottle in some mango leaf paper I bought (rather than wrapping them fully, which would take much more paper and money) and used tape underneath to keep it in place.

Hope you like.

It looks really nice. I can't think of a better way to add to a corked and caged bottle. I personally think labels are tacky on homebrew but this is really cool.

Thanks much.

I think custom hang tags could work on 12 oz. bottles without any additional wrapping. The 750ml bottles had just too much real estate to leave them plain.

Thanks!

Yes, I was very happy how they came out, both the beer and the packaging. Gave a few a way as gifts over the holidays... still have about 7 left. Trying to keep at least 1 or 2 for a year or more.

Looks great. Very sophisticated. I used to be a Sagittarius, kinda got to robbed a couple months ago when they changed it.
