I second this... would be interested in your file for the mac.

Also, the tags are a great idea. I plan to use these for sampler packs I hand out to people. My normal bottles, initials on the caps will be fine

I went off this idea, and made a template in photoshop for 1 tag... which then I just replicate the group 2 times after I fill out the template and space them so I fit 3 on a page.

Here is the outcome (And my first brew!)

Here's a sample of what I'm starting with.

The turtle image is a comp image of some vector art I've been thinking about using in my labels as "Loggerhead Brew".
Below that is the "beer-centric" information. I pulled the copy from the Beer Advocate website.
The red copy is the information statement regarding bottle conditioned beer. I pulled the copy that RandalG posted (hope you don't mind, boss), and edited to suit my own taste.
There are 3 icons below that. One to show if the beer contains wheat or not. My father has Celiac and I'll be cooking up some gluten-free beers as I go along. The second is a lactose icon for the lactose intolerant. (milk stout...mmmmmm). You can see this one is slashed out. The circle & slash symbol can be quickly applied to the wheat icon as well.
The third is where I plan to fill in the calculated ABV for each batch.
Finally, a friendly reminder to return bottles to the brewers so we can keep making good beer at minimal cost.

Thanks for the ideas Revvy! and to every one that has posted suggestions and samples in this thread. I love this idea as a simple and creative way to label bottles without having to soak off adhesive each time they are re-used.

For those that are interested, this image was made using Illustrator and Indesign CS3. Elements such as the circle & slash are on individual layers so they can be turned on and off without hassle. I'm happy to share my icons or Illustrator/Indesign files if anyone wants them.

Overall I think it needs a bit of background to give it some depth and make it look all 'purdy. Maybe a parchment background or something. I'll work on that.

Just FYI, I used Door Hangers (google them), they come with a slit and a hole already perforated and are fairly cheap in you buy enough. even in the small packs, 150 hangers for around $12 bucks.

Hey Revvy, your bottletags are awesome, thanks for the templates!

Wanted to share my mod of your template concept. My homebrew club is a big group with plenty of new faces each month. Our meetings are primarily social with a large tasting table for all our homebrews. Since most of the beers brought are unlabeled aside from caps, once the caps come off it's easy to lose track of who brought what beer. I just wanted something simple that could be printed out each month, although I may want to do a run of these on card stock and get them laminated so we can write on them with grease pencils or dry erase markers and reuse.

Just testing out a neck tag on a 22oz bottle, excuse the crap quality from my camera phone. Added the recipe (ingredients in % & IBUs, including OG, FG, ABV, SRM, total IBUs) on the bottle too - will include dates as well. The print is quite small but legible if you have decent eyesight. Would be nice to open a bottle up down the line and have the recipe sheet handy, right on the tag.
