Wedding label
 
So, My sister is getting married and She had said that her fiance loves blueberry beer. So, I made them a blueberry beer for their reception. They are tasting it this weekend to make sure it works for them (it tastes like blueberry pie, so good) and this is when I will reveal the label my wife made and name.

I like it. Simple is best.

Makes my mouth water just reading it, so that has to be a good sign.

I like the second one, if you were looking for a vote. It looks really good, clean, clever name too. Congrats!
