I chose the name for 2 reasons. It is from the Outsiders "Stay Gold, Pony Boy". But, more than half my friends are straight edge (don't smoke or drink). It's become the hip thing to do down here. I constantly have discussions with them about it, but usually just make fun of them. I don't mind what choices you make, but when you start pressuring everyone else that it's the thing to do, then it's just worthless. In other states there have been violent attacks on kids that don't agree.What's the point of a 13 kid being straight edge? That's not straight edge, that's under age. Anyways, I get real sick of hearing about this fad so I thought I would name my "brewery" Stay Gold Brewing. The kids use it as their own slogan for "staying pure"






I made it on a program called Flexi Sign. I use to do graphic design for a sign shop here in town, once I left I had to get the program for myself. You get pretty good after using for 2 years.

Thanks for all the positive feedback.

Sweet label and tat's, fellow Mississippian! I agree with others' comments as well. The MS government does need to lend an ear! Hell, the county I'm in is still dry....no beer or liquor! Crazy, I know. I love this state, but like ya'll said, there needs to be some changes to make it more livable.
Cheers,
Sgt. Major

First, I really dig that label.

Second, (you've probably heard this if you like to make fun of straight edge kids, but just in case):
Why do you have to take two straight edge kids fishing with you?







If you only take one, he'll drink all your beer.

First, nice label

Second, name it if you want. You brewed it! That same extract kit brewed by ten different brewers will give ten different beers - similar, but different.

Good work

Great Lable. All I have to say is that I'm glad I don't live in Mississippi. Good luck!

Well, I am NOT a true MS kid. I was born in Florida and moved here. I see you're from Jackson. I've been there a couple times and it seems there's a lot more to do. I live in a place called Guntown. We have a Post Office. There is nothing to do anywhere near here. I'm sorry you took offense to me not liking Mississippi ... but I hate it here. There's no two ways around it.
