Default DIY Pub Chalkboard

Was looking to do a Pub Chalkboard and found the makings at Hobby Lobby. Started with this Telephone Chalkboard on sale for $45.00

With a little paint and a barley add on from Lowes ended up with this.

Love it! Fantastic logo and fantastic name.

I'm not really crazy about the white section where your name is, but I don't know too much what else could go there. Maybe just a different color of paint and text. But that's just my nitpicking thoughts.

My thoughts exactly.

A piece of parchment with your brewery name in calligraphy would look really slick in place of the black/white painted letters.

I think it would look pretty sick if you had "Full Draw Brewing" written in black against a green background (the green you used above). In any case, looks great man!

Don't know what font that is, but I mocked this up with Lucida Caligraphy (looks similar):

I don't spend nearly enough time thinking about brew projects. I've probably been in hobby lobby 100 times and never thought to look at all those imported nick nacks as brew pub material.
