Well the name is tentative, since I haven't registered it. My wife and I live in the "Alberta" neighborhood and I have used the "ABC" acronym for my first few batches below. I think I enjoyed the design process as much as the brewing, although I run the risk of the actual product being a let down this early into my HB obsession I have printed these onto HP "flyer and brochure" paper and they look great on InkJet. I have seen a few comments about bleeding. I might even invest in a cheap laser from Costco and do it right. These are using a 5" x 3.75" size which seems to sit nice on 22 ounce bottles.

Thanks. Adobe Photoshop CS4 plus Google image search, and lots of fonts.

I am using P22 Cezanne for both of those fonts. It came with a huge adobe type library and there are dozens of other, beautiful handwritten typefaces.

Those are some fine looking labels! I especially like the Hat Trick
I also liked the irony of naming a beer in honour of a prohibitionist.
Regards, GF.
