I might consider a different font though. I imagine it's supposed to look like fumes from skunks, but it just looks grainy and hard to read.

Love the idea and the name.

Not loving the MS paint and the jpeg compression though man... I hope your original looks better.

i donno - the label just screams "I spend my time making great beer - not designing the label" - it's got that homegrown, original, down-on-the-farm feel & look to it - makes me wanna try it!

The posted graphic was compressed quite a bit. The font doesn’t look as grainy in the original and is easier to read. I’ll be the first to admit that my art skills are lacking, but I’ll go with Goat’s excuse that the label shouldn’t out shine the beer.

Thanks for all the feedback!

I dunno... I prefer to set high expectations with the labels, then disappoint with the beer.

BTW - how do you figure out the calories per pint?

I don't know the math behind it. BeerSmith does it for me.

So I assume you're going to put it in clear bottles so the smell will match, right? Ooh, then you could put some little halos behind him like smoke rings...

Really though, I like it.
