My problem is coming up with names for my beers. I have a house brown I literally call 'Brown Beer'. My amber is called 'Amber'. My Honey Nut Cheerios lager is called 'Beerios' around the house, so that may stick.

This is great! Also shout out to Riwaka + Nelson Sauvin, so good
Thank you! My original recipe was Riwaka and Nelson. This year I brought in Motueka to pull more fresh citrus/lime character, and it certainly did its job

Been lurking in this thread for a while but never made a label yet. Why? Still searching for a brewery "identity". Too much pressure! lol
Try to find something in your life that is unique to you and have fun with it. An inside joke that only you and a couple friends know. Something that means something to you.

I’ve been having fun naming beers and making labels out of Beatles songs. I figure I must be a third generation Beatles fan and I’m the only kid in our family who is. Though I’m making song labels I would still be hard pressed for a name. I can’t say Beatles brewery.

One of the best ones I saw in the what are you drinking thread says “Flyover Brewery.” I thought that was pure genius.

Everybody has their own thing.

I have really enjoyed this thread and it got me messing around with Canva. A graphic designer friend of mine is pulling her hair out at my work, but to me, that makes it all the more special. And I have noticed that when I share my brews, folks think the ones with "classy" labels taste better than the ones that come out of a plain brown bottle with a sticker on the top. Plus it gives me something to do while I am waiting for a carboy to open up. Here is some of my work:

Long time lurker, first time poster.
All my labels were designed to be copied in black and white photocopier. This assumption led me to the punk aesthetics of the stencils and fanzines: black, white, gray, simple forms that do not lose their attractiveness when reproduced in the simplest and cheapest way.
Everything is compiles in Inkscape with additional help from GIMP.
Take a look & feel free to comment.

And my most beloved polish hop in almost single hop version: "Mostly Oktawia Pale Ale" is the name.

This afternoon we'll be drinking this:

297 Buster.png

We a hoping this comes out like Civil Life Brewing's American Brown. Buster Brown Shoes, like Civil Life Brown, is a St. Louis product, though the cartoon character Buster Brown was not known for his civility. If you're too young to remember Buster Brown shoes: "Get off my lawn!!" 😛

(@DBhomebrew and @Brews and Blues, I'll report results in a day or two.)

I used to work with a guy from Poznan, everytime you walked to get somewhere/something and he noticed you were in his vicinity you could always tell exactly where he were. Because as soon as he saw you he would yell from the top of his lungs "Lech Poznaaan, Kurwa!" Prefferably if he saw you before you saw him...

[facepalm] It happens here quite often. A neighbor from a tenement house next door shouts such texts at random times of the day (and night) from the attic window. I'd love to answer him with a firearm...

Some older labels I've found on harddrive:

Bocks are so nice beers to label them. In Poland we've got old cartoon about Silly Goat - Koziołek Matołek...
Autumn NL Bock - herfstbok
#27 - NL bock.png


Doppelweizenbock with US hops 2nd & 4th attempt. Fonts: Ubuntu & Branboll.

Dark doppelweizenbock.
#12 - wszech-koźlak.png


As Good as It Gets? Melvin Udall was definitely bitter and rude (
#13 - zgorzkniały.png


Since Spitfire is most popular in this style, I opted for the Elk - my favorite polish aircraft from 1930's

Peated ale with barge carrying peat...
#49-podwedzane-ale.png


Red rye ale with red right hand (Nick Cave inspired). Fonts: Wide Latin & Ubuntu.
#50-red-rye-ale.png


And finally my best attempt at creating a clear and aesthetic smash label (I brew smashes most often). Unfortunatly beer wasn't that good :(
Jack's Candlestick, Gorri Sans fonts. Cloud from already mentioned source.

That's all, next labels will be fresh as hefeweizen in Bavaria!
