New batch o’ beer labels is in…
Schlafly Rye Bock: Per the label, “Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the opening of Whole Foods Market in Brentwood, MO with a Schlafly Rye Bock, brought to you by the partnership between Whole Foods Market and Schlafly Beer. Brewed from the finest quality raw materials including 2-row malted barley, rye and German noble hops, this delicious beer is as malty a German-style lager as you can find. Although more moderate than a traditional Bock, this is a very drinkable beer, perfect for any time of year, even if you choose not to fast like a monk.”
Coney Island Bourbon Barrel Aged Human Blockhead: This one snuck its way onto shelves earlier this month.
Mikkeller Black Buffalo Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout: a whopping 17.5% ABV.
Big Woods Busted Knuckle Ale: I’m surprised that more breweries don’t do this but these guys were clearly inspired by Stone Brewing’s label framework. Many breweries find out firsthand that they have to have certain font sizes and meet a bunch of other technical criteria when submitting labels. Why re-invent the wheel if you don’t have to?
