homebrew.label: Biere de Retrouvailles


A few are good, some are OK,most are BAD and all are my homebrew labels! Let me know what you think, or better yet let me know what you think of the beer, even if you haven’t had it.

This is an actual picture of a farmhouse my family stayed at in Belgium (just 6K from Siason Dupont).  In fact, we stayed in a room that was in that arch.  This is a beer (a Belgian amber) I first brewed to commemorate a family reunion.

This one is an excellent example of why you should never, ever, make a label using Microsoft clip art! I almost didn’t post this because it is soooooooooooo horrible.

Version #1:

Chocolate Thunda

Version #2:  About ten years later and using Photoshop.

This one is all bad!  I especially love the black boxes around the mug and the “espresso” and I think I may have assembled this one in Microsoft Publisher with borrowed clipart from the web. It is sooo bad (the design) but it did taste good.  I brewed a whole “pot” (from my Krups) of espresso and dumped it into a five gallon keg.

H3 got its name from hopping it in three separate places (mash hopped, boil kettle and dry hopped) and is one of my house beers.  It started out at a 7% imperial IPA and through several years of refinement it has become a 10% monster.  Mashed at low temps for a light body and fermented cool to prevent a hot or even warming alcohol presense, this beer is a sneaker.  It will sneak up on you and bite you in the ass!

Version #1: Getting a little crazy with the Photoshop elements.

Version #2: With each brewing I am getting closer to a final version of this label.

This was one of my first graphic arts endeavours.  For some reason I thought the Belgium flag colors and the B as the initial for Belgium – would be read “be” and Wi – short for wit (a beer style) would be read “wi”- and T would be read “tee” as in “Be witty” meaning “Belgian Wit” I spent an entire evening explaining this obscure reference.  Turns out it wasn’t that witty.

Raspberry wheat

I made this beer for a sorority reunion.  I think I used 5 or 6 pounds of raspberries in a five gallon batch.  Yep, that is a lot of berries. It turned out to be standard fruit beer. I know I “borrowed” the print from somewhere but I used Photoshop (one of my first Photoshop attempts) to spell out “Razbeery wheat” and grunge it up a bit.
