Every once in a while, I like to poke around and see what other label art beer writers are looking at and enjoying. Recently, Adam Nason from beerpulse.com recommended that I check out Dean McKeever’s work for Tree House Brewing. He wasn’t wrong – it’s great stuff! Dean is very versatile. As an artist working […]
Beer Label Art
In case you were wondering what the best beer labels featuring astronauts might be, we compiled this list. After all, thanks to Budweiser, we’ll be brewing in space soon.
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.
A lot has been said about sexist beer labels in the last few years. Considering who our president is, expect things to get worse before they get better. What’s genuinely surprising is how creatively bankrupt these labels can be. Simply put, if you think you are being creative by putting a scantily-clad blonde woman on the […]
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.

I had some great beers during CBW: Pipeworks Imperial End of Days Pipeworks Over The Line Both 2012 and 2014 Goose Island Bourbon County […]
2016 was a roller coaster of a year. In some ways, the worst year I can recall. We lost so many amazing celebrities, but we also got a kick-ass Star Wars movie! We had to drink infected Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout but also got refunds and fresh, uninfected bottles in November. Here in Chicago, […]
Every year I troll the label submissions of the past 12 months to bring you the Best Pumpkin Beer Labels on the shelves. There are hundreds of pumpkin beers out there with some impressive label art, but these are the 19 best I’ve found that I hadn’t seen before. I know what you’re thinking… “But what about […]
Please note: Goose Island is no longer accepting refund submissions for 2015 BCBS. In case you missed it, Goose Island is refunding folks who bought 2015 Bourbon County Stout with select bottling dates $15.00 for each bottle purchased. These dates are for the following timestamps for 2015: Bourbon County Stout: 10/9, 10/12, 10/22, 10/22, 10/23, […]
