Here's what I am thinking about trying on my upcoming very first batch of homebrew...


Or a combination of the two...

One common theme that I am seeing while looking through this thread....there's a lot of folks with a LOT of talent. I just wish I had a pinky nail's worth of it.

Here are my latest. I've started naming most of the beers I make after reformers/theologians from the same country as the style, since I'm a nerd.

I carve rubber blocks with a 'v' shaped carving blade. I had intended to do linolium blocks, but my Friendly Local Art Supply Store clued me in on a medium that didn't tend to slice one's hand open. Then I roll out my ink and apply it to the block, print a label, re-ink... etc. After they dry I spray them with "Crystal Clear" so they water-based ink doesn't run, cut them out, and apply them with milk.

I'm working on my winter gift brew as we type.

This one requires some explanation. After months of being distracted by non-brewing activities, I leaped in August to doing my first high-gravity beer modeled on "Dreadnaught" from 3 Floyds and Boneyard's "Hop Venom". I started with a Dreadnaught Clone but threw in some darker malts to move towards an Imperial Black IPA or CDA. Anyway, this may end up being my only non-Belgian (Lord of the Ales series) that I brew this year so the graphic title of "12" is fitting. This beer can not be ignored. It was challenging from the word go. After stuck fermentation and two secondaries, I have settled on a complex, super malty and hoppy brew that I am starting to LOVE! (recipe and drama here).

Anyway, I first found this artwork searching for imagery for a complex, spicy 12% "Mayan Barleywine" but I have decided to use it as for this instead. I found it over a year ago and sadly can not attribute the artwork (not like I am using it with permission, its private distribution/fun only). But if you have seen my other labels, I like giving credit to the illustrator or original character involved. Instead I went with the following quote from my favorite author:

[EDIT: I found the original artist. You can see his other work here]

“Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously.” --Tom Robbins
Fermenting: Polly's Rum Raisin Smoked Porter
Aging: 25 different sours (too many to name)
On Tap: Foxy Brown IPA, South Pacific Blonde, Blood Red Saison, Belgian IPA, Chilean Chili Stout

Here is a banner I worked up for tailgates. I've been brewing full 1/2 bbl kegs for tailgate and they float so much faster than any commercial macro or micro in the past.
The second was thrown together for a keg I brought to a boat party, that one floated before we even pushed off the dock! IDK if it's the beer or the signs, I like to think it's a little of both...
