I’m not going to lie… A significant amount of space in my beer cellar is dedicated to Revolution Brewing’s Deep Woods beers. When I caught word that this series of barrel-aged whales was going through a rebranding, I jumped at the chance to find out who the artist is with the honor of having their […]
Highlighting outstanding beer label artists
I found Mike Moses and Nepenthe Brewing while reviewing candidates for our Best Beer Labels of 2020 and, honestly, shame on you readers for not sending more votes his way. His work belongs right at the top of the best labels out there and I felt obligated to put them front-and-center in your eye holes. […]
We featured the label art of Dylan Nadsady in our vote for the Best Beer Labels of 2020. While Nadsady’s beer label for Emerald Republic Brewing did not make the Top Ten, his loose, raw, style stood out and we were compelled to reach out to see what makes him tick.
Stephanie Stevenson placed in the Top Ten Beer Labels of 2020, winning our mildly-coveted ARTBREW badge, with her first and only beer label, “Nevermore”, for Core 3 Brewery. That’s right, her first beer label EVER beat out hundreds of others. Let’s see what makes her tick!
It’s not unheard of for us to interview artists with just a handful of labels to their credit. What’s exciting about interviewing Joana Fraga, whose third label has yet to be released, is that she’s just getting started with making label art for Chicago’s very own Odious Cellars.

Wolfskulljack’s art is dark and primal in subject matter, but also in shape and line. Her work honors two sides of nature – stagnant death and repose and raw rage and fear. …and, yeah, she draws A LOT of wolves.
“I started by pitching a set of 6 designs at the brewery owners with the idea that, as each beer had character, each beer WAS a character… Those design decisions still live on today and hopefully make a Parallel 49 beer recognizable on shelf with even the quickest of glances.”
“I get hellbent on trying to improve and develop with each label.“
Don’t let that barbaric presentation of Mason’s Brewing’s REKKR beer label fool you. Ben Bishop is about more than just “hack and slash”, little leaguers! He’s is a storyteller worthy of a saga of his own. We’re getting to the end of the list of artists whose beer labels YOU voted for as The Best Beer Labels of 2018.
