Looks nice!

The only quibble I have (because I like to quibble) is that I would keep the "Blond Ale" the same font size as "Bathwater," and maybe move it up and the left, even if it overlaps onto the tub a little. The "Blond Ale" gets a litttle lost being so small. But, great choice of a pic, great photoshop work, real nice all around.

Did anyone read the warning on the label? Way too funny, and true!

Nice looking label overall.

Changes? Sure:

1) move the Blond Ale up to the Bathwater level
2) you'd probably have to reduce the pic slightly because of 1 above
3) I know it's probably sentimental and all that, and I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but drop the dog.

Chihuahua's were originally bred for food...should have been extinct long ago.

I'll wait for the "toast".

I like it, but the name needs to be larger - even to the point of overlapping the picture. That warning is great - lol

It is his brewery's logo/namesake.

Keep the dog.

Great label, BTW.

Excellent Label.

If you could work "the finger" into the bar code where it says "Scan This" that would be awesome.

Ok, to ME anyway.

Nice work!
