I can't stand Magic Hat's labels. I bought a 6er of #9 at some point. The beer wasn't impressive enough to get me to ignore the stupid ass labels.

This thread is not for talking about how delicious a beer inside the bottle is, but how poor of a job they did labeling it.

For me, anything involving Aviation or Dogs on the label is never getting bought by my. Some breweries will theme their entire line of beers off of these and I think it's a big mistake. Sure planes are kinda cool and I like dogs a bunch, but what the hell do they have to do with beer? I don't wanna think about your dog drooling and all his hair floating around the brewery when I am drinking your beer...gross. There has also been two breweries in my state that have gone under after using an aviation theme as their entire marketing approach. Coincidence? Not likely.

Pretty much anything sporting skulls or that has like a skull and crossbones on the label. This is the most redneck approach you can take to anything. Just stop.
so no wingwalker or fling dog for you huh. what a shame

I can't think of any that I don't buy because I don't like the label but I can say I gravitate more towards bottles that I think is interesting. You can't go wrong with gargoyles on Stone's beers!
