Default 4's Ale

Very soon, I'll be making a tribute beer for #4...in which I think will be the farewell tour season.

The beer will be an ESB, I think.

How's the label?

How are you going to formulate the recipe? It would be cool to do 4 different malts, 4 different hops.

Good idea. IBUs and OG divisible by 4?

Very nice label! A little too much green and gold, though

I like it- can you stick your brewery icon in the corner, or do you have that already covered?

Yes, you definitely need to incorporate your logo.

Well, I will do that--but I'm currently goofing with a label design that will be standard on all of my bottles....have you guys ever seen the Goose Island labels that have the parchment paper looking label with a description of the beer? I want to do something sort of like that--which includes not only a small version of the label (like above) but also the brewery logo on it as well. I'll unveil that soon.

You know how most people might put a brew date, bottled date, IBU's, and ABV, in place of those you can put years played, and some of his stats, but put them in the normal locations and text size as the ABV and such above. I'd also put a border around this one.
