Hop on google images and type in "Beer Labels" or something to that effect... See what others have done. Is there any reason for your brew name? Think of why you named it that way and then try and find something that works for ya...

If you get some images together that you like, I'd be happy to put them into my CS2 plugin.

I think some wacky scenes, like a collage, of people all smiles with things like glasses but replace the lenses with Hop Cones. Like a retro-60's/70's billboard for a concert. Maybe a fan effect emanating from the bottom center and outwards in Green and Greenish/yellow alternating hues. Then in front, the collage. A funkadelic Font.

Here's something quick 'n dirty. (If you don't like the wide format, lop one of the faces off. I just liked the symmetry of it.)
