Here's my Christmas Ale label. I realize a Black IPA isn't exactly a Christmas ale, but every year I brew my favorite recipe of that year and give it away in waxed bombers to my friends. Way better gift than cookies if ya ask me!

i really like the look of your labels. I especially like the duke of earl one im actually looking to do something similar with a logo for my home brew brewery name. Im completely new and should probably be focusing on basics of brewing still rather then labels but its just so cool to think of personalizing my hombrew. Im not computer savy by no means, but im more then willing to learn how to wrk a program for the sake of labeling haha. what program did you use ?

I found the idea on another thread. I am using business cards (5 cents/card) with a hole punched in the upper left corner and hung on the bottle with a small rubber band. It should save hours of peeling labels and glue off the reused bottles.

This is for my Kölsch in primary...since I used a dry ale yeast I'm calling it a blonde ale instead.

Paying homage to a childhood hero.

Not beer your right, but I love the simplicity of your label and your font choice

The illustration itself was just something I found online. After that it was just a matter of creating a label in photoshop and adding the text. There are tons of photoshop tutorials out there! You should check them out!
