I've only made one batch so far, so I decided I'd make a label for it, though I might not continue. Here is what I came up with:

Cool label! Very simple and elegant.

What's this nonsense about you may not continue?! Blasphemy! You mean you might not continue this pale ale, or brewing altogether?

No, I loved brewing it, just the hassle of making/sticking all the labels, just to remove them later.

I'll probably just label the ones I give to friends/family.

PHEW! I can sleep tonight.

I never have given into the label thing, as it does seem like it would be a hassle, but there is one situation where a label would be mondo. I'll post the idea here if I ever get that far.

Here is my latest. It's called Honey Head Nut Brown Ale. I named it after the story of Sampson killing the lion in the bible.

Using milk? It's easy, besides the sticking part, but I think it's fun.

No, unfortunately I didn't know about the milk method before I stuck shipping type labels on them. Big mistake!

This is my first label for one of my beers that was actually worth the effort to even make one. Haven't stuck em' to the bottles yet...Next batch I'll have it together.
