Add a flowing, wind-blown flag behind the WBC, and you are golden.

I like it. It'd be too cluttered with anything else (though I like the idea of the flag background, I think it'd detract from the simplicity).

I'm not sure I just like the clip art + text style either.
While the image is recognizable, it's a fairly low quality clipart and something about it just doesn't match the text/font style used.

i think it either needs a splash of color, or if you're going to stick with b/w - use a font that fits the style better. Try to find something that looks like the font in the Washington Post.

Interestingly, I could see that as an style for a Washington brewery - make all the labels look like "front page news" of the Post (just change the "Post" to brewery).

Just my 0.02, please feel free to ignore me.

How's this for a label?



I just knocked it up real quick, and if you want it, use it however you like. I think you mentioned that you'd like to sell your beer. I tried to make something that would look a bit more professional (although not totally, but it's what I could do).

I have the PhotoShop PSD file here if you decide to use it. If you don't, s'cool... the more practice I get with PS, the better.
