three floyds have to be the best
Pretty Things has great bottle art.
Agree with Great Divide and Goose Island. Also a big fan of the Bruery's labels.
Though I know there are better labels, Rogue labels got me in to craft beer and I still think they're sweet. FFF always has great labels
Those sure. And this too:
Hey. Great Lakes- Cleveland. Clever names and great artwork. Also invaluable ABV information and clear, easy to find 'Enjoy By' date. Thanks.
Definitely flying dog. You can't beat Ralph steadman and HST.
I actually completely disagree and I am somewhat stunned why they are going away from I thought excellent rustic designs to very blah new-age ones. terrible decision in my opinion.
. . . and you get a free Yeti sticker in their variety 12 pk! What's not to love about that???
Port, I like surfing, and collecting there bottles, and..... drinking their beer
New Belgium Lips of Faith
Troegs have really cool bottles. Goose Island has really clean labels I like them a lot. Three Floyd's labels are dark and disturbing but really artistic. Flying do has some cool labels as well
To me, nothing beats the art on their 750s. Also, Burton, Olde School &
Raison D'Extra kick major ass.
Maybe I'm just being a homer, but I've always liked the artwork on a Bell's beer. I think it's pretty sweet that they use stuff from local artists too.
Half Acre is another I do lilke
1. Jester King
2. Lost Abbey
3. Three Floyds
I really like New Galrus's Thumb Print series beers. Unpretentious and unmistakable.
For some reason I don't like Lost Abbey's at all...but it seems to be getting a lot of love in this thread. I guess I'm more into the more contemporary stuff like Unitas, New Belgium Lips of Faith and Half Acre stuff. Lost Abbey reminds me of stuff I'd see in a Sunday School book or something.
Really surprised nobody has mentioned Sixpoint's cans, which I absolutely love.
I tend to like any bottle with an old-timey look to it because I like old-timey things. Of course, a lot of breweries will do this for one or two of their beers, like Lakefront did it for their wit (Which was the main reason I bought it). I also rather like Yard's and Samuel Smith's just because they look old, though I can't say they aren't also good breweries.
Gotta go with Floyds, now if they could only get the labels to stay on the bottle!
Rogue's Dead Guy Ale. best design.
De Dolle. No contest.
FFF followed by Stone in a close second. I kinda like Great lakes as well and Im sure im the only one
ok, this is where my ny identity comes out.
I'm partial to coney island's crazy labels, and brooklyn brewery for their iconic B. The B has both mid-century modern appeal (even though it was designed in the late 80's...), and nostalgia appeal as it was created by the master graphic artist Milton Glaser (who designed the I <3 NY logo).
I have always like Arcadia Ales' graphic design.
Anything but Bell's
i like the Great Divide's.. mainly because i love the beer
i was going to say Unita as well (as someone already did). someone's doing a great job in their art department.
i'm partial to Sierra labels. they are always awesome.
i think Revolution has some kick ass art
just saw these today actually. never had em but like the design
I LOVE the labels for the limited Smokestacks (Impy, BBQ, Saison Brett, etc)
EDIT: DFH 90 Minute is one of my favorite labels ever
North Peak and Arcadia are a couple of my favorites. But then I'm a sucker for Gotham. And I think the Bourbon County series looks great too.
Three Floyd's is awful. It's a good thing they have good beer, because they have zero visual taste. It would be awesome to see a rebranding, but they're too far down the road with the graphic novel/skull and crossbones look.
Not really directly to your point, but I like to be amused by the label or packaging. Lagunitas would be my vote.
Maybe I Suck or am just Hop Stoopid. People do say I mumble sometimes. Don't know, too busy listening to the beer speak to me.
F'n GENIUS!! (guarantee that graphic artist is not working for a craft brewery or worse yet, unemployed...stay in school...)
they're odd but I really like De Dolle's
I'd kill for a set of their posters like this:
I also really like the Goose Island's belgian style labels, simple and classy
