I blogged it here.

As I mentioned in the blog, if you want to contact Patrick for design, graphics, photography work, just scan the QR code on the back of the bottle. It works. Or contact him at:

Thanks for the plug, man! Really appreciate it.

And I had no idea the QR code would photograph well enough to actually work, haha. Thatís very cool. And Iíll be posting pics of the porter in just a bit. Was going to shoot it last night, but had to peel some bottle labels to make it nice and matching.

Personally, Iím really pleased with how this one came out. Kind of hard to photograph, though, sine it wraps so far around the bottle.

And a sort of glory shot of both designs.

Does a pretty good job of illustrating how they tie into each other, though pretty different in feel/impact individually.

Thanks, guys. And, yeah, Iím a bit of a label snob, myself. Though, I try not to be. I sometimes wonder how many bad beers Iíve drank due to a good label and how many good beers Iíve passed up due to an awful label... you canít judge a book by its cover, but a good cover goes a long way, IMO. :P That being said, Russian River uses Comic Sans... haha...
