I don't drink beer, but I'd look twice at bottles with those labels on them.

yup! it's just a kit beer, mrbeer.com - you only ferment it 7-10 days and then carbonate/rack another 7-10 (then it lasts in the bottles up to 4-6 months)

The "Antler Ale" label is fantastic! The other one, honestly, reminds me a little too much of dogfighting, although I'm sure that wasn't your intent. But I'd definitely drink the first one! : )

it's a print I own from an old newspaper of a sheepdog fighting off a wolf from a downed ram.

they are dogs, and fighting, but it's not dogfighting like M Vick or anything.

I prefer the antler label, too. Good name. BTW, I've long wondered where you came up with Cold Antler? Is there a FAQ somewhurs around here? ;)

Just wondering why your label says "West Coast Pale Ale". Am I missing something as I thought you were on the East Coast??? Perhaps the kit is from the West Coast? Curious! My son has brewed his own beer and got pretty good at it. Hope you do too.

I love both labels. Really love them.

And I got the picture on the stout. Where it says, "protects sheep"- that's a huge clue. I like its subtlety.

Jenna, if you made prints of these labels and sold them on Etsy, I would buy a set in a heartbeat. They look AWESOME.

Hi Jenna, these are great. Good luck on your new venture! This is going to come off as wicked picky, and it isn't meant to be, and if you've already printed umpty-odd labels don't read any further, but you're missing an 'of' in the 'hint of cinnamon' line. Sorry (hanging head) it's what I do, I can't help it....i'm the friend who wouldn't let you go out with dirt on your face.

I tend to buy booze based on the labels,yours sure would catch my eye.

The labels are great! How do you plan to attach them to the bottles? I would suggest something that comes off the bottles easily so they can be reused. Both the bottles and the labels, unless of course you put a date on the labels.

Jenna,
I like the labels, & with your readership from being a world
class wordsmith you just may sell more than a bottle or two of this
stuff!!!
I'd put a printed signature
on the label to really personalize
it!!!
Nough said, just another more than pleasant surprise that is entertaining, educational, &
may spawn a number of home brew-ing ventures as a result of read-
ing your blog!!!
Personally I'm a Root Beer
man!!!
CHEERS WITH A HEALTH DRINK!!!

I love your labels and text - sign me up for a case - I don't drink but will share with others for the holidays!

Love both of them! I actually like the black dog stout label the best, BECAUSE of the image it portrays...the sheepdog is willing to do whatever it needs to protect the ram that is laying on the ground under him. Love it! You must be so excited! :)

How might I get a hold of a poster size of your Black Dog Stout label?
