Lol... when I first read your post I thought I had mis-spelled butterscotch and was like, great job dummy.

I agree it reads reverse on the main image. I tried switching the text but it just didn't look right... still trying to think of a solution but I like the current looks. So it's a catch 22.

You could just leave the label, but just say it in the reverse when describing it to people. Might really mess with their heads. Looks great, btw.

I decided that I really like when beer follows a theme, so I decided to make some.

The Great Feast ESB is a beer I have been drinking for a while now, and is really good. Sadly, only a couple of pulls left on the keg before it's all gone. I did this label a while back.

The Great Hunt is going to be brewd this weekend, and hopefully it lives up to it's sibling! I created this one this evening.

Thanks.

I don't mind the label design or illustrations, but the curvature of the text is really taking away from it. It'd be so much better if the text matched up with the oval...

Yes. The curve is tricky w/ the text as the font resizes every time. Still playing around with it.

Terrible attempt but the basic idea remains...same top and bottom (obviously bottom is changed for each brew style), picture changes for each brew, here is the one for my very first recipe:
