    Holiday Lager Label

    Well, after floating 2 kegs this weekend, we decided it was time to put the Marzen we brewed up for the holidays on tap. After I cleaned the beer lines and tapped the keg, I whipped up a quick label for it... What do you think?

    Fortunato's Casque del Amontillado

    How do you guys make these INCREDIBLE label graphics?

    I am a photographer "in real life" so i have a lot of experience working with photoshop. Once you know what it can do, its fairly easy. I usually start out with a photo of one of our dogs, then add and blend elements as required. For example in our last label, I started with a photo of our...

    Frozen Kegs

    So we haven't been using our bar for a few days while i was tracking down a co2 leak. Get things hooked back up and go to pull a beer to see if the kegs kept pressure, and I find out that while we were ignoring it, the temp in our fridge got too cold, and not i have two frozen kegs, one of...

    New American Wheat Tap Handle Label

    BTW, I made the tap handles themselves from a couple of sawed off craft table legs from Michaels and some little craft wood plaques.

    New American Wheat Tap Handle Label

    Pretty much the same thing. We reuse our labels too. They are laminated and stuck on with 3M easy off sticky tabs. I just print them at the right size, trim the corners and they are good to go.

    New American Wheat Tap Handle Label

    Continuing the series using our dogs in our labels, heres a tap handle label for the delicious wheat beer currently residing in our second keg. Not my favorite from the series, but its pretty fun (especially since rory, the beastie in teh label, really is a glutton for punishment)...

    Today I'm making...

    well it's been a little over 3 weeks since brewday and I think today is the day I'll rack my wheat into the keg. Brew to keg in 3 weeks seems pretty quick but I've been told that's not too unusual for a wheat beer? Anyway, looking forwarding to tasting it...

    source to online quick disconnects?

    I'm looking to modify our keezer set up to the following: Beer line from keg to quick disconnect mounted on collar. Beer line from quick disconnect to draft tower mounted on bar top. The idea is that I can disconnect the beer lines when I pull our keezer out from under the bar rather than...

    Today I'm making...

    Well I did it, I made beer. Everything went real smooth. No problems, or hiccups, although BrewinGirl might have been sick of my questions by the end of it :) I ordered the American Wheat partial mash kit from Austin Homebrew, and I guess the biggest surprise to me in the whole process was...
