(Left) The post-Repeal (under new ownership) brewery logo's origin "legend" and the logo used on dresses during the 40s:
Supposedly one of the most identifiable trademarks during their peak era of the 30s-50s. Of course, (and in a story I've told before) by the 1970s, it had already become forgotten by many. One day, at the factory I worked at and one of my co-workers asked me,
"Jess, did you go to the Olympics?"
"Because of your hat with the Olympics rings."
Pretty sure the woman asking lived in Newark or vicinity, too...
Dogfish head has some artist drawn labels which are nice. So do numerous other brewers. Sometimes the label is better than the beer-
Delerium's labels always remind me of the Dumbo movie
Just scrolled through the thread, so someone might have mentioned it, but really surprised not to see a picture of some SN Bigfoot labels throughout the years. Or that full back tattoo that the one dude got
Haha reminds me of that song "Pink Elephants on Parade" which was a trip to me as a kid.
*Edit* which I just found out was in DUMBO lol honestly I only remembered donkey kids smoking cigars and that song from the movie.
I get nostalgic over the Anchor Christmas Ale labels every year...
You're getting your Disney movies mixed up. The 'donkey kids' were in a scene from Pinocchio, not Dumbo.
That was Pinocchio.
Guess I'm the Dumbo then...my bad.
I've always been fond of North Coasts Old Rasputin label, the image has been around for years, and the beer ain't half bad either.
John Bonham would agree with you.
Often imitated, but never duplicated:
I am aware, this was mostly a tongue-in-cheek comment
Nonetheless, good to know that the nudity was not a factor and that the TTB is not as uptight as one may otherwise think.
How about this beauty. Like it or not, it's a classic.
But, what if, maybe, the Ladies loved it, and it would would have sailed right through?
On that note, Mannekin Pis doesn't seem to have many regulatory issues:
The Sun Ra version is great
I've always liked the clean and classic look
of this one:
Had not seen this before. As my wife just observed "that's bad/disgusting on so many different levels."
Needless to to say, this is now at the top of my want list.
That's just creepy!
You can't get more iconic than a Bud or Miller High life label.
Not sure about iconic but I love this one
Yeah, Anchor Steam Beer is another iconic US beer label ----- Wait - "WTF ?" *
* Is what I thought when I first came across it. Considering how old some ASB is on the shelves, one wonders how long this "limited" label is going last in some stores....
Also from NEBCO.
Before cease and desist from Lucasfilm:
After cease and desist from Lucasfilm:
Budweiser, pretty sure it's been the same since Anheuser met Busch
Well, a time-traveler (in either direction) would probably recognize it:
But the label's only been around, originally brewed for Busch's friend and customer, Carl Conrad, since 1876. Adolphus met the soap manufacturer (and his future father-in-law), Eberhard Anheuser, in the late 1850s when he was trying to sell him brewing supplies (Busch's original business).
It shows up in the PNW, so keep an eye peeled!
...and an airsick bag in you back pocket...
It obviously depends on when one first drank it, but this is the iconic Old Peculier packaging for me:
I always liked the artwork from Foothills Brewing out of Winston-Salem, NC
TRVE brewing's cans are beautiful
If I ever open a brewery and can afford it, I'd have the guy who did a lot of the cover art for Drive By Truckers do my labels.
Just always loved that style.
Ha! Username and beer choice pairings have never been more perfect.
Here's my nominee for iconic labels:
