OK,

The wife and I came up with this for our first draft of our logo ... opinions?

All I see is a blue box with a question mark. Not really too original.

I'm not crazy about it. I'd choose a different font, and I'd make all three words the same font. The flasks are good, but the multi-color bubbles...eh. I'd make them cartoon monochrome bubbles with a single-pane glass reflection, kinda like these, but make the bubbles perfectly round and ditch the shading. Or maybe leave the shading in and see how that looks.

I agree with LandoLincoln... Might be just too much going on here with the different fonts, colored bubbles and flasks (I do like the flasks). You may also want to consider putting it in a traditional oval or a round border so that it can stand alone on different label designs without worrying as much about making sure all of the label matches well with the logo...

My avatar is my logo (man there are a lot of dog themed brewing names!). It is real easy to swap some colors around on the labels to make it all work easily...

Sorry, but I can't see the image either.

I see the image OK. I like the concept but I agree with the font comments. I like the lab/sciency theme - can you find a font to match that? Also, a quick google search for beaker with black&white filter on pulls up a bunch of images that you could include that might fit what you are looking for. Love the idea though, hope you post the final product!!

I also like the beer lab idea instead of brewery... but again with the bubbles, less colors

I really like the concept as well. A few things to think about...everything seems to be floating and not anchored due to no background; maybe add a green lined graph paper like background (which might add some color too). 2 fonts is defintiely as much as you would want to do with this one (one might be better), but the font choices might be looked at; maybe an old typwriter look, or have the "beer" look like an ink stamp. Just some ideas. Good luck and good job!
