Default Which do you prefer?

I'm making a variety six pack for my groomsmen as part of their gifts. I have two different Red Ale labels and I need help deciding! So please let me know which you prefer, why, and then I'll let you know a little something about each one (but not now, it might sway your decision).
Thanks!!

Label 1


Label 2

PS - Very Best section will be changed to our name and wedding date.

Tough call. I like the second one, I guess. Focus on "Groom's Brew" is nice.

The print on the first one is a little muddy, and the devils don't seem to go with the sort of Mexicano feel of it to me. I want to like this one better, cuz it's more unique.... Like I said, tough call.

Congrats on the upcoming event.

If I saw them both in a shop, I'd be more likely to pick up the first one because it's a little quirky. I dig it.

The second one looks good, but the first one simply appeals to me a little more.

OK, so now the votes are 8-6 in favor of #1. It's getting tough. Thanks for the comments so far, I'd love to hear from a few more people.

i like them both... I agree that the focus should be on the GROOMS BREW...

have you thought about including a ball and chain on the label?? Thats what we are doing for our buddy's groomsmen party...

I like them both, but for different reasons. I would choose #1 if you could make the Groom's Brew portion more of a focal point.

I like #1's background, but the text isn't doing much for me. I would make it a little more symmetrical, perhaps putting the two devils on one line, to either side of the text, and making the other text larger and centered, but that's just me.

I like the first one more. It has a little more of that home made feel to it. The second one looks like its try to copy something commercial.
