I really like the label, and it does look very professional, but I agree with the bottom part of the frame looking hand drawn and not matching the rest of it. Play around with vectors in photoshop (if you've got it) to make a smoother looking curve.

Also, it might be overkill, but a neat idea is to have a % ABV scale on the left side, with low ABV on the bottom and high ABV near the top, with full and partial % distinctions (think an inch ruler). Then you could just snip/hole punch where that particular brew landed on the ABV.

I like the idea of the center being different for a different beer type. Maybe change the red background color for the different beers too.

Nice.
changing the color of the background is a great idea! No real story behind the tree. My friend is a photographer and has been showing me how to use my camera. I had a picture of a tree and decided to use it. This was after coming up with the name.

Also, just a personal preference, but I feel like the Papyrus font is way over used because it is one of the only "cool" standard font that comes on windows machines. You can find some pretty incredible fonts for free on the interwebs.... this is my favorite site:

Download Free Fonts @ Fonts4Free.net
Thanks I will check out those other fonts. For the center piece I am using Photoshop. I noticed the rigidness also. I am working on that.

I can't find how to use the vectors in photoshop? Probably because I have not played around with it enough yet..
