That looks ridiculous! Just kidding , I think that is one awesome logo, especially the monkey "coin" at the bottom. Should get some sort of freebie out of it on the BYO label contest!

I would buy that beer merely for the label. Excellent.

Minor criticism:
Can you make the axe stick out past the oval frame a bit more? also have the tail overlap the frame.

Yeah, those were my top criticisms, too. I'll probably do that.

Oh, and it's good beer, too. Only my 5th batch, but definately the best of those. It got me even more excited about homebrewing.
