OK, I like the first one, but the shield is confusing. I like the oar's (since they're closer to an ORR).

Instead of the shield, take the Secondary graphic and make it a one-color and place it behind the primary. I think this makes more sense than a shield, which just adds one more graphical element that the viewer must try to interpret. Just my $.02. This looks crappy because the background was artificially manipulated. He can do it much better since he has the original art.


Cheese, that rocks, I'm gonna propose that to him. Much appreciated.

Well, hopefully the final logo will be done this week. No major changes, it will be exactly like the first one I posted, but with the oars in the background. I like the double pun and I like the look of that one.

I also wanted to announce that once I get the logo, my Father-in-law is going to take it to his work (steel-work) and have it laser cut on a piece of steel. I'm hanging that on my brewstand! Hell yeah!

With the oars behind the primary logo, I'd remove the secondary logo from the top of the primary. Place the secondary on a small circular sticker to place on the caps. Possibly trimming to the outline of the logo, unless you happen to find a place that will make custom printed caps (let me know if you do).

I'd leave the lettering and the sheild like the first one, remove the secondary, put the oars in the background and use the bannner for the beer lable. Secondary for the caps, or if you put a writeup of the style or your brewery on the bottles or box, use that.
Or even better use the secondary on a neck lable, with a write up about your brewery on that lable, or the beer style/inspiration for the recipe on the neck lable.

Dude, I think you got it right. Looks awesome. So you going to start selling pint glasses with the logo when you get them made up?
