    ABOUT ME

  • Lynchburg, VA
  • I first started brewing sometime in the mid 90s when I was single and an apartment to myself. I've always been an extract guy but I've never brewed a kit. I've always been a cook and can loosely follow a recipe and improvise with confidence. So when I first started, I read Papazian cover to cover and then started with recipes. DME, hop pellets, plastic buckets, dry yeast, and a few specialty grains thrown in and I make pretty good beer. A Sam Adams clone and a brown ale are my go-to brews. I've never been bitten by the bug to go all-grain.

    Later in married life, my brewing career hit a snag after my first born. I brewed a couple batches here and there but it was pretty much kaput until after the second son reached about 4 years. My wonderful wife bought me a kegerator for my birthday. Sixels of the good stuff are expensive, so I bought me some cornies and started brewing again. Bottling was such a PITA, it was one of the reasons I couldn't find time to make it work with

    I'm thinking about a double-batch of stout, but it's cold and really windy today. I'm
    definitely not leaving the house.

    Even if you can't get a high res elk, the dropshadow will help soften the edges.

    I really like how you can add one simple element to the logo character (pipe, wheat, extra mug,
    etc...) to indicate the style of beer. Keep these coming. I would love to see how the concept
    evolves. :...

    Nice work. You may want to add a drop shadow or glow behind the elk to give it some texture.

    Most of the print-on-demand places like Cafepress and Zazzle do magnets. Quality is pretty
    good.

    Baby steps. Baby steps. Here's another draft.

    Here's a different plane. A little grittier.

    This is a design I've been messing around with for a label and a possible t-shirt. I'm looking
    for some feedback. Would you wear this?
