The 10 Best Beer Labels of the Week: March 16, 2013

Ogle. Open. Drink. Repeat.

  • West Virginia has craft breweries too—this one happens to contract brew out of Baltimore, but I'll still give them props on the label.
  • The mad, monkish hops scientist cooks up something crazy in the lab. Points for weirdness.
  • Trinity Brewing Company? More like TRINIDAD JAMES Brewing Company! Gold all in my teeth...
  • This guys hat is the definition of swag.
  • One word: Sexy.
  • The rose is mightier than the fist...or vice versa. Whatever. It's pretty.
  • Digging the modernist Michigan vibe.
  • Ballast Point always reps the lesser known ocean creatures.
  • I like beer labels that could be Playbills for an opera.
  • The So Bad It's Good Award goes to Hillcrest Brewing Co. for a cow with lipstick.
