This week in label approval history, Gigantic redeems itself, Floridians get frosty, a ghost ship haunts the ocean blue, and a squirt of hop juice make our collective eyes burn. Let’s get to it! The following labels were registered with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau during the 2nd week of 2015. They have been selected for […]
Best labels of the month, season, or week.
Happy New Year, beer label aficionados! It’s good to be back. I have yet another batch of government-approved, beer vessel-adorning, eye-catching, guaranteed-to-cure-your-dry-eyes, label art about which to wax non-poetic. Let’s wax! The following labels were registered with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau during the 1st week of 2015. They have been selected for their […]
Here we are at the fourth week of the “best of the week” posts as well as the final week of the year. If you are enjoying these posts, I’d love to hear from you. It’s a hell of a lot of fun writing about labels that haven’t yet made it to the store shelves. The […]

Clearly that’s what happened to old Johnny “Cask” who is featured on Dogfish Head’s 75 Minute IPA label. I wasn’t able to find much about the story behind the change, but I do know […]
Having just subdued the unicorn by slicing it thirds with his mighty scythe, he turns his back on the decapitated and disemboweled horned horse. This proves to be the Reaper’s undoing. This pointy equid is not so easily dispatched. The ages-old spirit of the beast rises up from its horse corpse and lunges its ethereal […]
