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

Ogle. Open. Drink. Repeat.

  • More beer labels should have daguerreotypes.
  • A cheeky bit of protest about beer taxes? Bravo.
  • Brooklyn Brewery celebrates 25 years with this imperial lager, and a label based on the Fred Tomaselli  painting "Breathing Head."
  • It would be a dream to go hiking with the terrapin mascot. This is the design for the forthcoming can.
  • The Honey Queen could give the queen bee Lil' Kim a run for her money.
  • Jolly Pumpkin art > Tim Burton movies.
  • This is probably extremely politically incorrect—royal Russian midgets to represent an imperial stout—but I can't help myself.
  • Stone is getting ready to release more of its Quingenti Millilitre series.
  • There's something sinister about DuClaw labels—I like that.
  • Cigar City's got me ready for spring—though in Florida, they probably feel this way a lot.
