Make the font stand out more use a solid white or something that doesnt blend quite so much.

Also use a stylized font for your brewery name.
Www.dafonts.comm

Military theme is awesome by the way.

The resistance theme really does not work well with heavy military equipment. In most cases the resistance movement did not have access to that stuff.

Good work though, just IMHO need to become more realistic.

Here's my logo I'm Still working with Josh at brew brand creative for some labels.
Working on going pro right now so I paid more to own the rights to the logo, even then the price was unbeatable. He definitely comes highly recommended.

My first ever try at a label. I always remove the commercial stuff, but for this year's Christmas gifts I wanted to make 'em mine. My family's last name is "Rick."

I agree with TwoRiders font change suggestion. Also, there's kind of a lot going on in the images that you're using... They're great images (especially the tank one) but the text gets lost and the design starts to seem cluttered. Could you maybe fade some of the background parts to black to allocate more space for the text. Alternatively, maybe you could try playing around with the hue/saturation settings (don't go overboard) a little to give a more stylized look to the images that you are using.
