The Best Beer Labels of the Week: June 8, 2013

Ogle. Open. Drink. Repeat.

  • Talk about aspirational branding.
  • Any beer label that invokes WWF wrestling is a suplex off the top rope.
  • Yes, it could also be a label for a candle company, or honey, or lip balm, but damn it's pretty.
  • When there's this much detail in the label, you have high hopes for the liquid in the bottle.
  • Yeah Short's—get weird with it!
  • The "So Bad, It's Good" award goes to this awesome  wolf band.
  • Unda da sea! Unda da sea! Drinkig IPAs...unda da sea!
  • Different from Founders' usual offerings in that it doesn't feature a white man, but that's part of the magic.
  • I'd follow a treasure map around the world to find some alcoholic ginger beer.
  • The marquee is a good look, though not entirely sure why a winter seasonal label is dropping now. Perhaps because it's L.A., where there are no seasons.

At his point, we’ve oficially begun our summertime craft-beer bucket list (or whatever you call a list where you don’t die at the end), with 25 expert-picked options to get through before Labor Day. But that doesn’t mean we can’t keep ogling some beer-design porn in the meantime. From a band of hopped-up wolves to a nude beach in Wisconsin, there’s plenty to get excited about on the latest crop of labels.
