    That's an upgrade eh? Well I guess we went from Windows 3.1 to Windows 98 at least. Next up, turn of the century!

    What's wrong with the new label now?

    Looks a hell of a lot better than the old one.

    Glad they ditched the font too.

    Love it! Can't wait to see Double Simcoe and Old Heathen, as those are probably the worst of the bunch.

    Is there any reason why this is the first to be released? Seems odd since it doesnt come out til August/September.

    The funny thing is the old Imperial Pumpkin Ale label was probably one of the best of the former labels. I like this new one.

    If I had to guess, I would say it's because they want to use up all the old labels before they switch to the new ones and a seasonal shouldn't have any (or many) old labels lying about. Don't really know for sure.

    I'm looking forward to the Merry Monks redesign.

    If you
    think those two are the worst, I have one word for you.

    Not a fan of their new logo font. Looks like a variation on Yards and Alaskan.

    They should go down to the elementary school and have a contest for their labels with some second graders- pay them in Reeces pieces and ring pops. Bet they could get better eye catching labels.

    I think it looks good. I mean seriously, what do people want?? Is the beer good or no?

    Off topic, but I read they're dropping Hops Infusion and adding a West Coast IPA, so I'm excited for that!

    ^agreed
    More brewers with bad labels need to start crowd sourcing designs from actual design communities such as threadless.
    I don't like seeing head brewers try to put there little spin on what they think looks cool. *cough*heavy seas*cough* Just focus on the beer. Leave the artwork to actual artists.

    Not sure if they were trying to get rid of all of their old labels but the Wegmans in Easton had full shelves of it about a month ago. They may still have some.
