Just bottled my second beer, a honey porter. I have designed a few labels and have narrowed my choices down to 2. I would like some input to help me choose the label. Here goes:


I like the layout of this label better, but the beach scene does not seem to go well with the style of the beer


This label seems better suited to the style of beer but just doesn't seem to pop as much. What do you think?

The bottom fits the porter style better...but that top label would kick A$$ for a blond or some kind of summer seasonal.

Ditto what the Muncher and Kahuna say. #1 it is. Also why not have the wrapping letters at the top read "Bare Bottom Brewery" instead of Bare Bottom Brew? Otherwise it's great, I really like pin-up art and have done a couple labels using it myself.

Schlante,
Phillip

Actually, I already have a label created for a summer blonde Ale. Its's actually made from Biermunchers Centennial Blonde and it's almost ready to bottle as well.



And I think I will take the advise of changing bare bottom brew to brewery on the label. I had gone back and forth on that and now you mention it, it should be the other way.

I think the brunette on the beach might be better for a darker wheat beer maybe.
