^^ That is neat!

I'd lose the Inked God font though, it's too fancy and in-line. Try it with a font called "salvation" - I think it's messed-up looking enough that it would fit nicely.

Okay, I think I'm done now. Settled on a brewery name (didn't bother to check if it's taken, and I don't care).

Whipped up a logo and a label that I can just change the beer name and description on, like this:





Well, lay it on me boys - I need to know how to make it a little better.

That's a great site. I've never used any fonts other than those that came with photoshop - any clues/tips on how I go from downloading the fonts from dafonts.com to installing them in photoshop? Thanks!

Mac or pc? If Mac, download the file, double click on the folder and it will unzip. Open the new folder it created, and double click on the .ttf or .otf file and click install font.

No clue on a pc

Storm King is a sizable mountain in the hudson highlands, directly across the river from us:


We have absolutely endless amounts of poison ivy in the summer, and this is probably going to become my go-to drunken lawnmowing option:


This is a batch of lighter saison I did from extract for my daughter's first birthday celebration/housewarming coming up in a few weeks (it means "the littlest bear"), it's finishing conditioning now:


This is in the bucket, just a regular brown ale, but the brick images are from a long defunct local abandoned brickyard in the eagle sanctuary, these bricks are EVERYWHERE in the woods down that way:


I did what was supposed to be a tripel, but I got my water additions wrong, so it's too weak to be one, but it is an overweight blonde... so:


We live on the hudson, which flows both ways, even 60+ miles north of the harbor, hence the title. Image is from the Chicago exposition of 1906, I believe:


FORGIVE the spell-checker underscores... this was just taken as a screenshot from the cheapo powerpoints I put together to make these.
