Nice labels! Quick question, which program are you using to make them? I've got a few brews under my belt now and would like to start dabbling in my own creations and labels. Thanks!

Yeah, I just figured I would try to get a correlation going for him.

I love so many of the labels and ideas everyone here has come up with. And to me, the european themes are very intriguing.

I can see that, but there are so many misconceptions about Europe by people have who have never been there.

I lived in Germany for 9 years and have been to England 3 times...

Ive never been to Europe, as I never could get a passport because of adoption identity issues, and finally have straightened everything out, so hopefully someday. Im limited to history and reference materials, but like you said, unless you've been there...

I use a free program called Serif Draw which is okay but not ideal.

I wish I could spring for photoshop but I'm not willing to spend the money if the only thing I'll use it for is beer labels.

Sorry to take this off track (I do like the labels), but I have to throw in my knowledge of the Irish contempt for the English. It is true that the Irish (my heritage) were forced into slavery and were consistently mistreated through direct rule and foreign discrimination, but the biggest point of dissention towards the English, as told by my grandfather, dates to the Irish Potato Famine back in the 1860's (or so). Potatoes were the main source of food for the common Irish family due to agricultural limitations. When the famine (fungus) hit, it wiped out the entire crop. Many families starved, lost jobs, homes, families split up... horrible atrocities.

This became the breeding ground for English hatred since the Irish reached out to the English Lords and landowners for assistance, and they turned a blind eye to the people. To this day, there are still strong feelings in some sects, but the N. Ireland v. Republic got more press due to the more current issues.

So if it ever comes up on Jeopardy, you can look smart in front of others.
