you want just the charcoal image? Like I said this is not my own image. I'd be happy to email you the xcf file if you use gimp. I am horrible with text. I'd love to be able to highlight it pop it, just don't know how.

I have to say i really like this one and will most likely use it on my own Tap Handle and bottles if this recipe happens.

Ok. I'm going to get this ball rolling although I may not be the lead organizer when all is said and done.

As such, I'm going to make some command decisions. The overall goal of these decisions is to ensure the success of the tribute beer, the labeling and the distribution.

I see that there will probably be beers going to 3 different groups.
1) Exchanges among HBTers
2) Gifts to Kevin's social club, The Greenwood Rovers.
3) Gifts to the family and friends.

We will have the option to send beers to 1 or all three.

I have made contact with someone within the Rovers and that will likely be the person that I will coordinate #2 with.

UncleMike http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f19/sad-...ml#post1483220 seems to be the person with which to coordinate #3. We'll likely send to one individual from that group and let them distribute.

The opinion right now seems to be swinging toward an ESB recipe and some label with a variant of the Cash avatar. These things are still up for discussion, but we will be deciding on this within a few days. There may be a need to create a different label for those in the #3 group, I don't know.

My #1 requirement for the labels is that we all use them. The packaging is very important. I would also like to see an area on the label that we all have the liberty to personalize with our own logos or at the very least our name or handle.

More to come.

We're also going to target some hard dates.

Roughly speaking we should brew this by mid Sept at the latest. We need to have everything wrapped up by mid Oct, to beat any holiday crazyness.

I would prefer that all of the gifts (group #2, #3) be shipped within the same week timeframe and not trickle in.

I just caught up on these threads after a few days... kind of hits home. Consider me in for the brew. I will raise a glass to a fellow brewer.

I would propose a rear label or neck band for personal information, thus leaving the main label consistent.

I probably can't get to another brew until the second week of September. I don't keg so I would also need additional time for bottle conditioning :\

Rules look good to me OlllllO. For the HBT handle and/or logo, I'd recommend Back label for that. (LGI beat me to it) along with a written excerpt about a fallen brother and beer. LGI had volunteered this, just awaiting his chance to drink enough to bring forward his poetic sappiness.
I'll p[ost a rough idea of a back label to accompany my front label.

If we all sent 6-12 bottles in to one person, they could then mix and match beers and send them out to the various intended recipients. Seems a little easier and cheaper than everybody shipping out beers to 6-12 different recipients.
