Hey everyone. This is my first post here, and I just wanted to thank everyone for creating such a terrific resource.

I bottled my first homebrew ever just yesterday. It was the Brewer's Best kit IPA. While I do feel slightly guilty assigning my own name to a kit beer, I am still very proud and excited and figured I'd try to come up with a name and label.

Let me know what you all think! (There are two versions...one just has the side borders). Aside from the poll, any additional comments would be appreciated. Thanks.





I think the one with the sides may look better on the bottle.

I like it with the sides, if of course you are going to added text to it, with brewing, location, brewer info and the likes. But, you could also use the plain one and add a small label to the back for that as well.

Either way you go, its a good label.

I voted no sides, but that's me--I'm plain.

Thanks for all your responses. I'm torn between wanting to be simplistic but not TOO simplistic. I like the sides, but I also don't want the clutter of a ton of extra text. I'll keep playing around with it and see what I come up with.

It's what's on the inside that counts, right?

hey the cool thing is you can make it what ever you like. i like the no sides look, but if you want to make it with side and put information about yourself and the beer and may make for a ease of reading. but nice job on your first label

I Love the sides. what would it look like if you had the same consistant stripes that are in the Mic photo as well as the sides?

Just a thought. I really like that label though
