Did you draw those yourself? Either way looks awesome!

These are legendary! Some of the best I've seen on the thread. If the bear drawing isnt yours, or you have a blog, would you mind to post the link? I'd love to make an imperial porter label with that.

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it! I've been working on a handful of labels off-and-on for basically months now, so it's nice to get some feedback. I do have a blog, www.bear-flavored.com where I have write-ups for each beer too (there are individual links for each beer in the quoted post).

I use old vintage art for my labels, I definitely don't have that much drawing talent myself. Wish I did. But I like the aesthetic of using old art for my labels anyway, so I would probably stick to them regardless. The first painting is called "The astrologer emptied the whole of the bowl into the bottle" by NC Wyeth. The bear piece I don't have much info on, but I believe it's called "Mountain Charlie Fights a Bear."

That first picture would be great for the Flanders Red I plan to make . . . just need to remember it (1) if it turns out OK and (2) in 12-18 months.

Looking on wikipantings.org I found a great image for my beer in the fermenter. Here's my quick (relatively... an hour or so) attempt at a label. This is loads better than attempting to make my own -- non-artist / art appreciators take note!

I created this today. It's not a label - I'll use this tag for my tap handles that are empty (god forbid) or to just hang on the reverse of any kegs I tag.

The image is from John Everett Millais' "Blow Blow Thou Winter Wind.

Some really awesome labels in here! Def not on the same level as some of you. Here are two that I created for some beers I plan to give away at the holidays. Trying to keep somewhat of a "theme" to them

My pumpkin spice beer


Russian Imperial Stout

The Wall label is sweet. At first I thought it was a Pink Floyd reference, and I was like "Awesome." Then I realized it was a Song of Ice and Fire reference and I was like "Awesome."

All in all, you're just another ice cube in the Wall.

Label for the beer I brewed yesterday.

Bonus points if you get the two fathoms reference.
