I was recently playing around with some ideas for my vanilla porter which is being bottled very soon. A little background on the imagery for the labels.
Version #1 is a picture of the Tetons. I used to live in Jackson, Wy and I thought the whole white snow/vanilla thing worked.
Version#2 - smokestacks... I now live in NJ and where the beer was made so the smokestacks are poking fun at the "garden state" LOL!
What do you think?

Version#1:


Version#2:

Keep it dirty. I like #2, it is a porter, and darker after all.

I like them both but I'd use #1 for the vanilla and save #2 for a choc. porter or something.

Dirty Jersey gets my vote, but only because you live north of where I do. Which under NJ state law means you live in North Jersey, and are therefore smarter, more affluent, and more sophisticated than me.

Yeah, but I'm a transplant so it doesn't count. Without cognitive dissonance this state would suffer an ego implosion and break off from the mainland.
