I am turning 50 next month.

Yeah yeah yeah, I know.

Over the hill and all that.

I am giving away bottles of brew to my guy friends who are throwing a party for me and I am stumped.

What would YOU put on the label?

I have thought of several ideas but did not particularly like any of them.

Help an old fellow out here guys !

Cheers,

knewshound

I think you nailed it with over the hill... Some kind of graphic to illustrate this... Humourous enough that I like it

Have the slogan: "Fifty is nifty with a homebrew" or something like that.

Over-the-Hill Brewery presents "Black Birthday Brew" for those birthdays that just don't seem fair.

1. You could do a label that references the good ole days when you were young with some stuff from the 60's on it.

2. Scantily clad women.

3. Make the label blue and diamond shaped.

I think you should do a play on a Semicentennial or quinquagenary (50 years), but that's just me.

I like the JD style label Revvy posted just switch Old no.30 with 50... I also like the cartoonish nature of the last one...
