Default First homebrew

Going with "transporation themed" beer naming, here's my first attempt. I combined the "Beer Labelizer" with my own image and added a bit of sidebar text inspired by what others have posted.

Amazing thread, very entertaining. You guys have all done GREAT work. I posted my first few labels in a separate thread (pls click here). But my latest project is a LOTR-themed series called "Lord of the Ales". I haven't developed all the branding for it yet and I am still playing around with fonts. I am using some LOTR fonts I found online and illustrations by the Brothers Hildebrandt below. This whole thing started because I have a 100% Nelson Sauvin IPA and I wanted to play on the New Zealand theme....

I like the idea of labels, especially when you're giving your brews as gifts, but being the lazy person I am, I made a multi-use tag that I just tie on the necks with twine. For the ones I give out, I wax the caps. It actually looks pretty cool. I don't have an actual picture, but heres the tag I came up with.

Nice. Simple and clean. I like the type too.

Thanks! I'm an architecture student so they've been preaching simplicity in design like it's a verse from the bible. I've also been doing freelance graphic design as a hobby for several years now and i'm definitely all about minimalism.

My time as an architecture and photography student, as well as my old hoppy of graphic design, I agree. Less is always more.

jimpdx: nice work, those labels are fantastic! The artwork really draws you in to read the rest of the label

"british thinking - american drinking" sounds better to me. but I am an asshat, so take it for what it's worth.
