Mostly for aesthetic reasons. Just looks cool. Side note, I too am originally from the Monterey area. 8th & Main in Carmel specifically.

Sorry. 8th & Scenic. My family always just called it Main. Not sure why, but it stuck.

I generally like oval-shaped labels as opposed to the wrap-around rectangular ones. Might try doing a rough multicolor paint job on my bottles instead of printing off labels each time.


It's a pumpkin samurai, not a knight though. More for concept.

Putting the QR code on labels is a neat idea.

I think a lot of people do it because it looks cool, but it also helps keep oxygen out if you're planning on aging the beer for many years.

How would I do this process myself? where would I get the wax?

I plan to store a few bottles for a year or two maybe more

You can get the wax at your LHBS, most likely. Put the pan of wax in another pan of boiling water to melt it. Then dip the bottles in.
