I'm still tweaking this one. It's my first attempt at making a label. Will be for my latest batch that has 8 pounds of Maris Otter....

Sweet graphic, is it a stock image, or did you design the whole thing?

I like the red riding hood one, but my wife likes the brunette one.

It's a stock image that I modified. The artwork (except for the otter and the text) is by an artist named Alphonse Mucha.

I think on the one hand, it's kind of a heavy concept, especially with the engangered sliding scale right there. And then on the other hand, you're encouraging your drinkers to "get one before it's too late" which makes me want to book a hunting trip and bag a siberian tiger.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great idea to remember and honor species that have been pushed to extincition by humans. I just think maybe it's a bit much, I mean, for drinking beer.

So, I would suggest removing the extinction scale, and change the slogan to.. "appreciate one before it's too late"? or something along those lines. As for style, yeah, I could see one on a microbrew bottle.

I think I will get rid of the endangered scale as you said (maybe move it to a back label with more info on the animal and beer style later on)

As for your hunting trip comment...I can't believe I didn't notice that before. Thanks for pointing it out. I came up with the name and slogan before the concept, and never thought twice. It will be changed. Maybe cherish or enjoy instead of get.

And thanks for the style comment!

So my label for my very first batch has a back story. The beer is an E.S.B. I brought the recipe home and went to the store to get spring water to make the brew. Got back, and my German Shorthaired Pointer (Dixie- my namesake on here), had eaten about an ounce of hops.

I was pissed, didn't think much about it, and went to the LHBS to get more hops. Called my wife. Who happens to be a senior vet student. She informed me that hops can be poisonous to dogs. So we watched her, and she started panting, getting hyper, and her temp spiked. So off to the doggy E.R. we go. Thank God she's fine ($700 later). Couldn't have happened in 5 weeks after Jennifer graduates! lol

So the beer is named Spotted Dog Ale, in her honor. The photo is of her while we watched the Rays lose the ALCS this past year. Yeah, that's a Rays hat she's wearing.
