The 10 Best Beer Labels of the Week: March 2, 2013

Ogle. Open. Drink. Repeat.

  • I don't even like baseball, but this got me excited for baseball-season beers.
  • I had to give To Øl back-to-back honors for this cheeky barley wine.
  • Just a lovely, bucolic scene of a farmer shaking the peach tree.
  • The Uinta cans, coming in the next few months, are looking mighty handsome.
  • Modernism meets beer art.
  • Commando Beer gets the "So Bad It's Good" award for looking like the official ale of G.I. Joe fans.
  • Half Acre and 3 Floyds are constant contenders in the beer label wars, so it's not surprising that they nailed the art for this collaboration.
  • I love how the actual dog that inspired the art is also on the label.
  • I like the trippiness of the Cosmic Ales labels; this one is particularly out there.
  • The burlap look is spot-on—just seeing this triggers the same feeling you get from smelling fresh coffee.

This week, we looked ahead to some of the new craft beer cans we’re excited for this spring and summer. But beer art cannot be contained to cans alone, and there are some stellar 12-ounce bottles and bombers on the horizon as well. Find out what happens when Half Acre and 3 Floyds collaborate, and when Boulevard turns its attention to coffee.
