Gone are the days when you head to the beer store and mindlessly pick up your default brand of beer. Today, there are so many incredible beer companies taking big risks to offer something different, with consumers reaping the rewards. Many beer labels are no longer boring or traditional. They are fun, attention grabbing, and there’s a label designed to suit just about any occasion. The right beer can will greatly enhance the feel and theme of your party. If nothing else, they are great conversation starters.
The following beer choices are based strictly on aesthetic beauty. They are a collection of labels showcasing great designs. Figuring out which ones you enjoy drinking the most is the best part. Such a drag, right?
Whatever the occasion, have some fun with it.
SIDE LAUNCH - PALE ALE
This label boasts an iconic looking logo with some beautifully subtle lines in the background. Great for the graphic designer in all of us.
DUGGAN'S #9 IPA
I'm a huge fan of typography. This label features nothing more than a large #9, but because it's so different from most of its competitors, it stands out on the shelves (and at your party) The clean, contrasting label makes it a bold choice.
OLD TOMORROW - CANADIAN PALE ALE
I love this label. Its simple colour scheme and great contrast make it a striking choice. Almost has a 1970's James Bond feel.
COLLECTIVE ARTS BREWING - SERIES 6
Collective Arts Brewing have taken their beer labels to another level. They have chosen to celebrate the creativity and imagination of some amazing artists by selecting original artworks to be their next label. You're looking at a couple of my favourite illustrations from "Series 6".
ACE HILL - PILSNER
A Predominantly white label that features clean copy and a cool typographic logo. Simple and unique design.
NICKEL BROOK NAUGHTY NEIGHBOUR - AMERICAN PALE ALE
I chose this one strictly because it's a fun, conversation piece that is sure to bring a smile to your face. Especially in the company of your favourite neighbours.
