Other than that it looks pretty clean. i need to start making some labels...

What's the point of entering? To try and win second place?

Looks AWESOME, John!

If I saw that on a store shelf, I would by a 12 pack or case no problem just for the label. That looks awesome! What program did you use?

I don't care for it. While its catchy and could possibly be down right funny. It doesn't make much sense.

"Going down never tasted so good"

What is going down? Is the beer going down on me? Am I going down on the beer? Is the beer going down my throat? Or the front of my shirt/pants? Down the street or driveway?

You have the whole pirate theme going on, I think your slogan should incorporate that somehow.

I think the slogan is pretty cool; I read "going down never tasted so good" as a dual meaning.

The beer going down your throat never tasted so good. And the pirates sinking ships or picking up treasures from sunken ships (that went down) is also good.

Am I right, or totally off base.

Label looks great, but I'd also move down the Davy Jones banner so you are not covering up your brewery name.

Thanks for your comments. Perhaps you missed the name of the brewery is "Deep Six" Brewing Co? "Deep Six" is synonymous with being thrown overboard... hence the anchor in the logo. Now, I'm not too sure as I've never been thrown overboard, but I'm pretty sure my beer tastes better than the bottom of the ocean...

i like the multiple entendre.

1. "going down" doesn't sound like it would taste very good, lol

2. taking down a nice beer

3. sinking into the sea

I think it's a great slogan!

I didn't miss the brewery name, but I did not know that is what Deep Six meant. And granted i doubt anyone would not buy a beer because of its logo, but not being versed in nautical terms could cause some confussion.

I think the label looks freakin' awesome! I was just left pondering what the slogan meant.

But now that you have explained the slogan it makes complete sense!
