The Best Beer Labels of the Week: June 1, 2013

Ogle. Open. Drink. Repeat.

  • 5 Rabbit is a cool brewpub out of Chicago that's focused on changing perceptions of Mexican beer—Muscat grape must and almond flour will do that.
  • Chilling on a tree branch drinking double rye IPAs seems pretty great. So does a stein made out of wood.
  • It's all about the message—stay old-school!
  • What's not amazing about a beer label that looks like a hockey jersey?
  • A cheeky name as always from Evil Twin, but a prettier label than usual.
  • Squeeze every last drop of resin out of that baby! For hops heads, this image definitely gets the salivary glands going.
  • Is that Canibus in there??
  • The "So Bad It's Good" award goes to this B-movie quality label depicting a whiskey barrel-fueled zombie apocalypse.
  • Crux has got a nice eye for design, tying together all its new releases with this recurring pattern. Don't miss the Source

This week, beer pro Greg Engert made a compelling case for honoring classic craft beers rather than fetishizing the new. He makes a great point, but even he readily admits that it’s all about balance—staying rooted in foundations of the movement while still seeking out what’s new. So let’s do this: Crack a Sierra Nevada Torpedo or Founders Porter to toast to the masters, then check out the latest beer-label art to see what’s to come in the future.
