When I go party, if I don't bring a keg, I bring a cooler full of ice and bottles.

I'd like to label my St. Pati's day brew, but short of buying the avery wine labels (what a pain to remove) what are my good options?

I'd like something that stays good in cold water, but isn't too much of a pain to remove in hot.

I can use the color laser printer at work, but what kind of paper, and what to use for glue?

Polypropylene weather resistant label stock with permanent adhesive works great. We use it on many of our wine and beer labels and have found it stands up to the rigors of ice and water. Because it doesn't tear it peels off with no soaking.

We've been printing on labels from and have been happy with them. There are a few different options on weatherproof paper for inkjet printers. We use the one that is meant for beer bottles:

I've used waterproof paper used for mailing labels and it sucks trying to get it off. Give these a whirl. They stay on fine with just ice. Then they peel right off. Super easy and you can reuse them.
