I'm going to go back and add bottle date and alcohol percentage later.

Didn't really want to name it as it's an extract kit and not my own recipe. I've got some clever names for future batches once I get the hang of it.

It's a lot clearer than it appears on here, especially the "stay gold". Don't know why it turned to crap on flickr. oh well.

I take it it's illegal to brew beer in Mississippi still. Very cool label. Kinda looks like a Russian propaganda poster.

yup, STILL illegal. On top of that we STILL have a 6% cap on beer.

I hate this place.

Very nice, I really like the humor of the brewery location. Well done, and yeah, how did you make it? what'd you use?

Does the government of Mississippi not have an ear for the proletariat's plight?

No?

TO ARMS I SAY!

Nice label

Great looking label fellow Mississippian. Where ya located?

Where'd you get the graphics for that (the paper and the people)? Was the red already on the paper or did you add it in Pshop? If you did, good job.

I love MS, but geez louise we could change more than a few things to make it more livable.

Schlante,
Phillip

Ps I sent you a private message with some contact info for a homebrew club, meba.com, and msbrew.com.
