Ugh ... Smuttynose Finestkind IPA
I use to love to read the Anchor beer story on the neck label, hope that remains
For all of the crappy beer makeovers discussed, I will say that New Belgium consistently puts out new and innovative labels. I can respect that independent of the quality of their beer.
...On the other end of the spectrum, the classic Lagunitas label on all of the beers gets old. Sometimes Lagunitas beers taste the same to me. I often wonder whether it's the beer, the label, or both.
Yeah. I like the redesign.
Nobosy asked me, but Anchor and Dogfish head's rebrands make me sad. I do like Troegs though.
(Guess you gotta look it up on your phone as you drink ).
That looks like a decent update to the label, loses.some charm.but at least its got continuity
yeah me too. Especially Troeg's
Are you sure that's not an old Bartles and Jaymes ad?
They sure look similar - but that is the original label for Finestkind with Cy and Paul. Cheers!
It's not bad, but it does lose some personality in the translation.
Heck with the old labels--give me the old BEER.
just to name a couple.....
This post brought me back. My parents always had some Bartles and Jaymes in the fridge when I was growing up. I also have a vivid memory of trout fishing with my dad when I was probably around 12 or 13 in the Allegheny National Forest. We were walking through the woods along a stream and came upon a cabin that had cardboard cutouts of Bartles and Jaymes standing prominently in a bay window. They were such a big name at that time, and now are probably mostly forgotten about.
Stone - what's up with upside down labels??
That is horrible......That original label is classic, I love it.....The new one.....Blah.....
On a good not I just found a 4 pack of Really old brown dog from 2014.....I thought it was back and just grabbed it.......I read it ages well......
The new look introduced by New Belgium is absurd. The gold and green design of Rampant was dignified. The money used for the new marketing would have been better spent improving their mediocre line-up of beers.
did you see they brought back the retro labels?
Haven't seen them yet, which set/theme?
I love this label.
Deschutes tweeted something about it. Not sure exactly what was meant to be honest.
Thanks! Looks like it's not uniformly chosen, but selected from 3 of the older styles that had a circular aspect to the label design.
Didn’t mind this one
I hadn't yet. Very cool, thanks for the heads up
Agreed highly. I also miss the "Off Centered Ales for Off Centered People" motto on the cartons. I am very off centered. And I need my off centered ales back.
But by doing that they are only acknowledging the true source of their inspiration for their "Innovative" beers! (And giving the old legal term for near beer, "Cereal Beverage" a whole new meaning.)
"Silly rabbit, craft beer is for KIDS* !"
