So i'm not a great enough brewer to really warrant making labels, but I have a design background (sort of) so I figured why not?

here's a label I just completed for what is essentially Northern Brewer's Irish Red Ale:



what do you guys think? I'm really new to brewing, so if something in the description is wrong/dumb please don't flame me, it's jsut that I'm still learning

I am well open to critique

This is what I plan on brewing next. Trying to formulate a good recipe on my own for it. At least I know what I want it to taste like

Very classy labels!! I just got burned in another thread for offering a critique, so I won't do that here.

Very classy tho!

No no! Please do! I don't mind critique, as long as you don't mind if I don't take your advice. It works both ways

I'm very happy with these, so I may stick with them, but good ideas are good ideas, so I may steal them

I have actually found people on here are much nicer than the average internet forum. Its a good change of pace. Maybe its all of the homebrew? I mean, how can you be angry when you're brewing?

But back on topic. Your labels look great. I like the "Please Drink Responsibly" on there too. Really looks professional.

I find the IBUs to be a very useful tidbit of info for a label. Moreso than the OG.
