@ Bob: Thanks for the suggestions! For the latest version of my Harvest Porter label (Sounds nicer than Palin Porter IMHO) I delected the "and" between the brewed on and bottled on lines. I also decreased the font size and moved the entire image into the middle so I could put some other text on each size of the label.

The latest version is on my blog. (Can't post photos at work, boo.)

Thoughts?

I liked the original Palin Porter concept since this was brewed as the election drew to a close. Depending on your recipe and hop additions the BJCP might have had to classify your brew as the beginning of a new style, The Bering Porter - a hoppier, lower alcohol porter.

I like the Harvest Porter label on your blog, but I think the moon picture could be downsized a bit as it makes the Mulberry Street Brewery name seem like crazy ribbons of hair off the moon's head. Just my take though. Otherwise excellent job on he label.

Good call Birch. I think I will downsize the moon a bit. The letters kind of do look like hair! Ha.

I still plan on printing up some of the Palin Porter labels too, just for fun. A Bering Porter? Maybe, I'll have to post the recipe I used for review.

Do you use a label making program? If so, what do you use?

@Evan: That would be a funny tagline! HA.

@ Eastside Brewer: I used Inkscape to draw all of the above labels. It was kind of hard to use at first but there are a ton of help sites on the net to help you out.

Sometimes what I say is just funny within my own head. Since BJCP lists Baltic Porter as a "traditional beer of the countries bordering the Baltic Sea" and "having a increased complexity and alcohol content (7-8.5%ABV). I figured maybe a Bering Porter, since Gov. Palin is from Alaska which borders the Bering Sea and Russia, would not be as complex, have an increased bitterness, and have a lower ABV. Really just going for the funny, nothing against your recipe.

From your blog posts your beer sounds delicious and your description reminds me of The Devil Made Me Do It from Tyranena Brewing Co. in Wisconsin, which is probably my favorite porter-like beer. Also congratulations on your future brewing partner!

Birch: I am kind of slow sometimes.... Bering Porter, clever.

And thanks for the congrats! I am looking forward to brewing with him someday. I think that would be a pretty cool father/son activity.
