06.04.2009 | 2 Comments

Response on the first pass of our Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale label was overwhelmingly positive, but there were a few changes we felt would make it stronger: We made the kilt look less like a Scotty Dog and more like a kilt We added “mother-in-law” back into the description We made the hat a little

Revised Eye Patch Ale label

04.26.2009 | 15 Comments

I’m looking for your feedback. Does this eye patch look better than the the original? I left the sides of the label off, so disregard that. We are just looking at the actual eye patch itself. Comments appreciated!

“The eye patch looks awkward”

04.24.2009 | 0 Comments

So maybe you’re right. There are many comments proclaiming the awkwardness of the eye patch in our new label mockup, which I guess is what happens when I try to freehand something. I think what we should be shooting for, in terms of look and style, can be found here: Source

Bottling (and corking) our Laissez-Faire Barleywine

09.18.2008 | 1 Comment

Last year we bottled the first Laissez-Faire in 22oz bombers and dipped each bottle in gold wax. They looked amazing. They were also impossible to open. This year we switched to 750mL Belgian-style bottles (note: 750mL = 25.4oz), complete with corks and cages: Those corks were tough to get on with our dinky corker. I

The new Eye Patch Ale label

09.03.2008 | 10 Comments

I’ve been staring at this label for far too long. It’s not dramatically different from the old Swashchuckler label, which is part of the reason why I’m not quite sure it’s done. But maybe it doesn’t need to be all that different. Regardless, Jeff said I should just throw it online and see what people

One beer. One vote.

02.08.2008 | 10 Comments

We’ve started debating the question which has no answer: If we have to pick one beer to go to market with initially, which beer should it be? There are many factors at play here, including what micros are currently widely available (Sweetwater’s 420), what Georgia has a taste for, and what name/label is most likely

We didn’t realize until recently, but it turns out we are awesome. The breakthrough came Thursday night as we dipped our Laissez-Faire Barleywine in gold wax and put labels on them. Turns out they look GOOD. Almost too good… Our friend actually took a bottle to Brick Store in Decatur and shared it with some

We’ve been waffling on a name and label for our barleywine, which has been cellared now for around 4 months. After sampling a few choice bottles over the past few months, we’re confident that this beer is going to kick some serious ass. As such, we need to make sure that the name and label

My dad made his first appearance at MNB last night. He was in town on business, whatever that means. In any event, I thought it a appropriate time to post this label which was created as a prank for his motorcycle club. Check out the inspiration here. (Thanks Mark!) Apparently my dad is a pretty

Laissez-Faire Barleywine? Yea or Nay?

09.25.2007 | 15 Comments

Many of you are aware of the trouble we’ve had coming up with a suitable name for our barleywine, which will be available come Christmastime. When storing the barleywine, I wrote “Laissez-Faire” on the boxes to signify that people needs to keeps their grubby paws off of our masterpiece. Laissez-Faire represents, of course, the economic

Bottling our barleywine on Monday has got me thinking about names again… And I can’t get away from the hobo motif. Do any of these strike a chord (or trigger a better name?): Bindlestiff Barleywine Glad Rags Barleywine Jungle Buzzard Barleywine Steam Train Steve Barleywine I encourage you to go here or here for inspiration.
