Homebrew Labels.

I was playing around yesterday with some ideas for some basic labels we could use to make our bottles a little more exciting. It's a very minimalist design, but I think it looks pretty cool. I slapped them on some bottles of our stuff I had in my "cellar" last night.

Here's some photos...

Here's the new stuff so far for this week:

** Big event tonight at Barley's -- Foothill's Sexual Chocolate release party. They'll have the 2010 & 2009 versions of their much lauded imperial stout on tap, as well as their barrel aged Total Eclipse Stout and their Seeing Double IPA. I'm going to do my best to make it down there. Action starts at 7pm. **
