"A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one"

That's one great looking label. Tell your buddy he did an incredible job.

That is the beauty of copyright law, you can't claim copyright on a name of a town, or other geographic entity.

The only thing I worry about is the soda company called Cripple Creek Brewing in Chicago. We will see, I have a friend who's sister is a copyright lawyer.

Thanks for the input. I will post the other 4 label art tomorrow.

That's NOT RUE!!! One company has. Tell their lawyers they can't copyright a town/region: BUDWEISER!!!

The town of Ceske Budejovice in the Czech Republic (I've been there on several overnight trips) translates into German as "Budweis". According to Bud's lawyers they can't sell Budvar, the local beer, as "Budvar" because it is too close to "Bud". They had to rename it "Czechvar" for sale in the US.

The suffix, -er, refers to anyone or anything (masculine) from that region. So, a budweiser is from the town of Budweis.

Ladies and gentlemen, here we have an example of irony. Budwiser=masculine!

I'm usually quick witted, but I don't understand your "irony" remark.

Naturally, the "er" is a form of grammar. German to be specific.

The "der", "die" and "das" represent the masculine, feminine and neuter genders.

It goes without saying, but I guess I will anyway, that, yes, even a male from Frankfurt can be called a Frankfurter while a female from the same town is technically a Frankfurterine.

Much in the same way as you calling yourself a "Washingtonian".
