I thought this would be a fun one, also informing to those of us who would like to create our own. Everyone can get a glimpse of what the brewing population enjoys. So please post a picture of your favorite brew labels!!


I personally enjoy The Lost Abbey line of bottles. I love the simplicity and old world style.

All Flying Dog stuff. The artist, Ralph Steadman, is amazing. Made famous for his work with Hunter Thompson, he also illustrated my favorite version of Alice In Wonderland

I for one really hate the Flying Dog labels. I've got a fine arts degree and have always hated designs like that. Aside from the fact that they're hard to read, there's just something about them that creates a tension for the viewer. Never cared for some of the early modern artist or people like Kandinsky that created art with that sort of tense feel.

As for favorites. I like the Dark Isle and Belhaven labels. Oddly enough I'm a fan of the Budweiser can design (I know now you know I'm nuts!!!!). It's actually quite similar to alot of older labels from back in the day!

Schlante,
Phillip

I agree with you on this. I think that the flying dog artwork is just too much for a beer label. I like the more simple and classic designs.

Idk if they are my favorite, but I really really like the chubby kid labels. He is a homebrewer on this forum and his work is really simplistic but looks wonderful on bottles. I especially like his monster one. Does he draw these himself?
