We’re super honored to interview the artist behind the winning label of our Top Ten Beer Labels of 2018 – Emily Boyd! Oddstory Brewing’s beers would throw down some serious competition for eyeballs on the shelves here in Chicago!

“I realized that Southern Prohibition was on my wavelength and not afraid to get weird and take a risk with their art… it turned into beer that’s sitting in the cooler at the convenience store.”
I am extremely lucky to be catching Alexandria early in her career. It’s easy to look at her work and see that she has an amazing future in whatever path she takes. I hope she stays in the beer packaging. The shelves of my bottle store would certainly be improved exponentially if she did. Clearly Two Tides Brewing of Savannah, GA saw her amazing potential as well.
In which I interview Jason Burke, another long-time art contributor to the Pipeworks Brewing brand. To say that Pipeworks Brewing is a local gem for us here in Chicago would be a “kick to the stones” to the science of gemology and a wet willy to mineralogy.
I first became aware of the work of Hired Guns Creative back in 2015 when I featured their pumpkin beer label from Longwood Brewing in our “Best Of…” post. Since then, we’ve played Twitter tag with Hired Guns on a few occasions, especially when a new label masterpiece hits the shelves. Leif Miltenberger was kind enough […]

Late last year, he sent me the following email: Hey there, I’m so happy I finally have a reason to email you. I’ve been a fan of your […]
There’s not much of a story here – companies rebrand all the time. As of this writing, they haven’t even updated their website and their Facebook page has teased the new look, but nothing official is there. Perhaps you’ve already seen the new Blue Moon Brewing commercials where oranges rain down from the sky like […]
Since I started this site, I’ve had lots of talented artists reach out to me and share their work. It’s probably the most rewarding thing about writing here for me. Aaron Scamihorn knew in his guts that his recent pumpkin beer label should have been counted among the finest of 2015, and he’s not wrong. It’s […]
UPDATE: Wiseacre’s Kellan Bartosch was kind enough to say a few words about working with Rachel. If you’ve already read this interview, you can jump straight to it here. It’s one of my favorite parts of WISEACRE – working with her -Kellan Bartosch I discovered Rachel Briggs’ WISEACRE labels entirely by accident on a trip […]
