So, Iíve fairly into graphic design and typography. Have been for years. Have always felt that Iíd be able to make some pretty kickass beer labels, but have never given it a shot. So, would you like one? If you would, send me what youíd like to include and what dimensions you need to fit your particular bottle. Not saying I will make you something or that if I give it a shot, that youíll like it, but itís something Iíd like to get into. So if youíre at all interested, send me a message and Iíll see what I can do.

I could go for a label. Here are a couple of ípicturesqueí beers Iíve brewed if you want to give one of them a shot:

The Saison fermentation is still chugging along at a good clip three weeks later. Iím boggled.

So, finally had time to come up with something. Never found out what type of bottles you were putting it in, but it doesnít really matter. If you even still are interested, haha... Kinda just made stuff up, so I hope you like what you see.

Iím going to try to get something together for the porter this weekend. Already have a pretty good idea as to what I want to do.

I used to do a little graphic design years ago, and I must say that you have done a fantastic job on those labels! Understated elegance that still captures ones interest. In future, if need arises, I will be keeping your beermail on file...

I will be announcing my brewery very soon as everything falls into place. We will be in need of logos and everything, if youíre interested. All I can really offer you in return is some tasty homebrews!

Thanks for the kind words and interest, guys! Wrapping up the porter label now, but wonít be able to print/photograph it until Monday, most likely. Came out pretty cool, though, I think. Made this one for your standard 22oz bomber size (though, itíll fit on other sized bottles, too.

Switching gears and finishing up some mockups for a local beer club. Will post those once I finish them up. And to those that PMíd me, Iíll get back to you a little later.

Might have to find a place to print this porter label tomorrow... have it finished up and really want to see how it looks on paper and around a bottle. Iím really liking it in digital form, so it should only get better, really.

The art and layout for the label look fantastic! Itís cool that you incorporated The Fraternal Order of Wayward Brewers and the other info, and I really like the overall label treatment. Finn Hill Brewing looks surprisingly legit!
