Here are the first two labels we've created. Let me know what you think.

Both are really well done. Clean, simple, well made. Makes me want to take a sip without even seeing the beer

Very nice. How did you make the grain "grow" from the round border?

Not sure if you were looking for feedback but here goes...

Well done and a good song, The Fields of Athenry. I've never actually seen it written in it's Irish form. I'm not entirely sure how they fit on a bottle but perhaps "Ath Na Riogh" would fit nicely if it were larger and "Irish Red Ale" could flow smaller under it. The archaic font may be a bit hard to read as is and I can see the words having the potential to just run together as is. You could even set "Irish Red Ale" in a more basic serif font to contrast.

Perhaps on the side panel you may want to put a pronunciation in parenthesis as well.

Just some thoughts.

I like them both. My only suggestion for the first one is making the font larger and possibly split into two lines. It looks a bit tall and squished to the eye. Two lines may let the font "breathe" more. I might make the backstory a wee bit larger as well.

I find it far easier than to critique other people's work than actually finish my own.
