The Best Beer Labels of the Week: June 22, 2013

Ogle. Open. Drink. Repeat.

  • Old-school weightlifting is always hilarious.
  • This design is just cool, and sort of reminds of a mix between a medieval flag and the Sega game Source
  • "Will Work for Beer."
  • San Diego's Mission Brewing is starting to make waves, and the pirate-themed labels certainly don't hurt.
  • Not sure what's going on here, other than that it's from Spain and I like it.
  • Lazy Magnolia is contract brewing this "kolsch-inspired blonde ale." I like the coat-of-arms–inspired label.
  • What's better: the Deschutes Green Monster, or the Fenway Green Monstah?
  • Sticky from hops one presumes—don't get any funny ideas.
  • Pipeworks nabs the "So Bad, It's Good" award with this preview of its winter barleywine.

Last night, I headed out to the East Village to meet my girlfriend for dinner when I got a call from her saying she’d be an hour and a half late. Silver lining: I was near Good Beer, a great bottle shop that offers on-premise drinking. Is there any better way to end the week than sipping a pint of Mission Extra Pale Ale while perusing the shelves of a beer shop and inspecting all the labels up close and personal? It was pure bliss, and by the time she arrived I was relaxed, a little drunk, and ready for ramen.

    Most of these suck. I’m feeling nice today, so I’ll give you one to add your list – Bells Amber Ale. Art.

      True story—Bell’s art is always on point.
