First ever brew - (all i have is a 6 pack left)
Its a west coast style IPA

NAME - Arrowhead




Second was a dark heavy smokey thing, gueness texture with a smokey porter taste

NAME - Dark Knight




Then i decided i wanted to get fancy and go all out. This beer is a hop heavy one that i put a lot of time and effort into.

Name - HopTop (98 ibu and 8%)

Thanks!

The first two were trial batches that turned out good. The third almost cost me $90 in ingredient's so i wanted to take a bit more time and do that one right.

REALLY dig the Hop Top label. The other two are very nice too, but have you considered the cost of ink? That's a LOT of black. Just something I personally think of when designing a label. But all in all nice work

BTW what program(s) are you using?

I figured that out AFTER i printed about 50 labels. From now on I only label the bottles i give away plus a few for myself (total of about 6-12 of them)

Programs... Well i use a mixture of Photoshop, paint and corel.

Thanks for the positive comments!

The last one is awesome, I love how the smoke around the beer glass traces back to the distant building, and how the sun is casting long shadows of the building. Great job!
