The 10 Best Beer Labels of the Week: February 9, 2013

Ogle. Open. Drink. Repeat.

  • Very exciting to see Bluejacket, an ambitious new brewery opening in D.C. this year, starting to put out some great labels.
  • Loving the compass on the top and the black sheep on Uinta's latest cans.
  • The most cultish beer in America—released once a year to ticketholders on Dark Lord Day—has a new label. No surprise that it is dark, brooding, and badass.
  • You'll likely never see this can design for Surly's Overrated IPA since the government shot it down. We get that a 10-year-old might be attracted to the design, but we doubt any little kids are going to get hooked on hops.
  • It's unclear whether this might be slightly offensive to Rastafarians—hopefully not, because a lion with a boombox is pretty great.
  • Shoutout to Paul Bunyan's sweetheart.
  • How has no one ever thought of this before?
  • What can I say, I've got a thing for boomboxes showing up in odd place.
  • This beer seems like it would transport you to a better place.
  • With the hand-drawn look so popular in beer labels today, it's nice to see something with a bit of a modern, computer-graphics edge.

Yesterday, we took a look into the beer-art archives to see how some popular brews have evolved over the years. Now, it’s back to business as usual: The best new labels, including a preview of this year’s Three Floyds Dark Lord, and a Surly can that got shot down by the government.
