Citrus Gold

Designed by Craig Valentino Design | Country: United States

“During the 2014 holiday season, as per tradition, the home brew of Father & Son Brewing Company was created. This year, the name Citrus Gold was given to this orange golden ale, which of course was named after the sweet notes of Belgian orange peel used in the brewing process.  The idea was to create a label that was as bright, as bold, and as crisp as the the beer itself, allowing it to accurately represent the brew. 

The beer was then bottled using 2 different sizes of swing top bottles and hand-labeled with bright white thick-stock paper. It was then distributed as holiday promotional gifts.”

La Brasserie du Château

Designed by A3 Studio | Country: Switzerland

“The Brasserie Artisanale du Château based in Lausanne, Switzerland, commissioned the graphic design agency A3 Studio to create four new labels for their traditionally made beer, as well new packaging. 

The beers are brewed with a traditional process, for this reason A3 Studio has developed a graphic style which is both contemporary and traditional. The labels for la Brune, la Blonde, la Ginger and the India Pale Ale are inspired by the sea world and are decorated with ropes. The illustrations (a whale, a corset, a siren, and a ship) are drawn by hand to emphasize the hand made production of the beer, they are inspired by old engravings and sailor tattoos. 

Printed on craft paper, the labels stress the authenticity of the beer. The brown cardboard of the four-pack completes the look.”

Farnham Ale & Lager Brewery

Designed by lg2boutique | Country: Canada

“The Farnham Ale & Lager Brewery is a new company that has just made a splash in the world of Quebec Beers. The brewer, located in the village of the same name, called on lg2boutique to design a brand platform that reflected its product, develop a graphic identity, design packaging and the total identity of the platform.

The branding of Farnham Ale & Lager positions this new Quebec brewer as an innovative brand that stands out in its category because of its taste and because of its look.

All of the graphic elements were chosen to highlight the beer’s origin, which was this Eastern Townships railway town. The four flavours stand out with their strong colour codes, their degrees of bitterness are indicated by 12, 27, 33 and 64, highlighted numbers, and the diagonal cross symbolizes a railway crossing.

The platform contains packaging, promotional clothing, caps, glasses and coasters.”

Drinking cold, black Stout makes you bitter: scientists

Drinking cold, black Stout makes you bitter: scientists

So there: drinking all that black stuff apparently makes you a cold, unforgiving, bitter person. A study conducted by researchers from City University of New York and published in Psychological Science, linked taste perception to moral judgments. Which, as Daily Mail noted, suggested that drinks like stout ‘should be drunk carefully among friends’. Oh, to hell with it, we’ll just pour ourselves another pint.

Emulating Ecosystems: A Story About Beer

brewery-system_image_copyright-biomimicry-3-8-instituteBusinesses interested in meeting environmental sustainability goals can learn a lot from ecosystems. Functioning ecosystems are closed-loop systems, where one organism's waste is another organism's food or building material. An example of such industrial ecology is the ZERI beer brewing system that replaces the "make, take, and waste" linear resource stream with a circular system in which waste is treated as a resource rather than as garbage. This is biomimicry at the system scale.

Move to North Carolina, get a college degree in beer

Move to North Carolina, get a college degree in beer

Beer is big, and we don’t just mean that alliteratively. With craft beer seeing increasing demand in the United States, North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Community College has been planning to offer a degree in beer since last July. The course is not yet updated on the official website, but it is slated to equip students with understanding brewing as well as mechatronics and manufacturing.

Fyne Ales 48 Miles Later

Designed by Freytag Anderson | Country: United Kingdom

“48 Miles Later” is a collaboration brew between Fyne Ales and Brewdog, all in the spirit of Brewdog’s recent #Collabfest. The result is a unique Smoked Chilli Black Ale named ’48 Miles Later’, relating to the distance between the Brewdog bar and the Fyne Ales brewery.

We were engaged by Fyne Ales to develop a label for a limited edition 750ml release of the beer. In collaboration with designer Matt Burns, we developed a concept that would incorporate the two locations as well as the breathtaking drive required to reach the brewery from Glasgow to the shores of Loch Fyne. We interpreted the twists and turns of the epic route using ink and roller onto A1 textured board.

In addition to the beer label we created a short brand film. The film evokes the taste, textures and warmth of the beer whilst capturing the craftsmanship and bespoke nature of the craft beer brewing process.”



Designed by Font3studi | Country: Spain

“Gavarra beer is made in the traditional manner and seeks to convey the values, history and authenticity of the local cork production trade that dates back to the early 18th century. Peelers, hauliers and stopper makers who, with their effort and dedication, were pioneers in exploiting the finest cork material in the world, while at the same time ensuring the preservation of the landscape of the Gavarres hills.

The territory of the Gavarres, as has always happened and still happens today with any inhabited area, reflects the activities and ways of life of the various human communities that have populated it. The names of the places and their legends reveal a way of perceiving and interpreting his world.”

Designed by Neumeister | Country: Sweden

“Whoever said you can’t recreate the past, apparently never told Spendrups master brewer, Richard Bengtsson. Inspired by archives and a fascination with historical brewing techniques, Bengtsson did just that, re-launching a Swedish classic that hadn’t been around for over 50 years. Although Melleruds brewery is long gone, we wanted to respect the rebirth of its prized pilsner with a design language that presents the nostalgia and unvarnished aesthetic of the 1940s in a way that is current and inviting. Everything from the logotype to label design and packaging takes you back to a time when simplicity trumped sophistication, colour was a fad, and the words ‘ordinary’ and ‘traditional’ were considered high praise. Fast-forward to the present and you’ve got design that gets noticed, because it is honest. That stays fresh, because it is authentic. The perfect dressing for a beer Bengtsson considers “just as it should be.”

Sixpence Stout

Designed by Midday | Country: United Kingdom

“With a subtle flavour profile of a traditional christmas pudding, our brief was to name and design this festive stout. Our solution, ‘Sixpence Stout’ was inspired by the coin traditionally baked into a Christmas pudding in Victorian times for good luck. The design references the Christmas pudding with a festive holly placed above the “O” of the stout and the brandy butter inspired waxing on the neck of the bottle. The design also takes influence from vintage ale labels of the period.”

James Squire Rogue Tales stories: A journey through the former USSR

It might have been the arid 35-degree heat, the wooden ‘beds’ that we were facing another night of sleep on, or the fact that the day’s drinking had inadvertently began at 8am earlier in the day after crawling off the aforementioned bed to find some water.

Whatever it was, my comrade and I decided that Donetsk, Ukraine’s eastern-most city nestled in the south-east of the former USSR state near the Russian border, was not a place that we’d like to spend another evening.

We were there as part of a jaunt for the EURO2012 football championships that had begun in Gdansk, Poland and traipsed through Wroclaw, Poznan, Krakow, across the Poland/Ukraine border into Lviv, Kiev and finally ended up in Donetsk. And by Donetsk I mean a ‘campsite’ that had been erected 10km out of town for the purposes of the tournament.

A quarter-final between reigning champions Spain and the talented yet wayward France was on the menu at the impressive Donbass Arena later in the evening, and another quarter-final between Italy and England would take place 24 hours later in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev.

Ordinarily, making a 700km trip across a country would be arduous, but achievable in the time we had between matches. But this is Ukraine. The recently constructed high-speed trains ran just twice a day, and the second of those trains wouldn’t get in until 11.30pm, about the time that the Italy-England match would end.

Of course, we weren’t the only ones looking to make a quick getaway out of Donetsk, and the first train of the day was fully booked. 400-euro flights would have quickly sucked the fun out of such a journey, and neither of us were prepared to navigate Ukraine’s notoriously poor road system in a hire car in the state that we were in.

So that was that. Well, that was until two Canadian girls who had also been condemned to the campsite mentioned an old, USSR-style sleeper train – which to our knowledge had been taken out of circulation for the high-speed trains to operate – they were taking back to Kiev the following morning at 3am.

It seemed unlikely, and the vague details they could offer did nothing to alleviate our scepticism. But in a hazy, desperate situation it was our only option.

After watching Spain dispatch France 2-0, we arrived back at Camp Zero at around 1am. We found our Canadian friends, and the decision was made.

With padlocks we did our best at locking our tent – we’d return to see the semi-final between Spain and Portugal that was set to take place in Donetsk three days later – grabbed a change of clothes (well, I did – my comrade was in the midst of a bet I’d made with him that paid him six beers per day as long as he wore the same clothes – the full German team kit), our passports and tickets to the remaining matches, including our 480-euro tickets to the final (our padlock system wasn’t safe enough to house those) and then tried to barter a taxi to the train station.

With the the ‘Mushketovo’ train station scrawled in cyrillic on a piece of paper, we found a taxi driver that would take the four of us, and into the night we went.

30 minutes later we arrived at Mushketovo, located right in the middle of nowhere, expecting it to be deserted. Yet at 2am, the classically Soviet-designed station was a hive of activity. After negotiating through the line, tickets were purchased and an adequate supply of beer purchased, and we went to the platform to wait.

The Soviet-era train was straight out of James Bond, and after carriage upon carriage upon carriage rolled in, we made our way to what our tickets seemed to indicate was our carriage. Onto the train we climbed into pitch-black darkness, but not before what we thought was a ticket inspector had taken our tickets upon entering. And so began a search for our bed for the journey, with every carriage seemingly full.

In (very) basic Russian we enquired as to where we were located, and in response were asked where our tickets were. Eventually we found a carriage with two spare beds, so in we went. Thick Russian dialogue and the constant waft of cigarette smoke from the corridor filled the cabin, so we began to indulge in the supply of beer before trying to sleep the rest of the way. The sleep lasted no longer than an our before I was woken by a glaring, gruff-looking Ukrainian in military clothes, giving me the universally understood look that I was in his seat.

So up onto the third ‘bunk’ I went – a small bench less than half a metre from the roof. The sunburn I had acquired from falling asleep in the sun the previous day made sleeping on my back impossible, and so I was wedged sideways in the minuscule compartment, hoping that I wouldn’t tumble out and down two metres onto the floor once I drifted into sleep.

Air conditioning wasn’t something that the Soviets had deemed necessary, and after a few short hours of sleep the dry, stuffy heat had awoken us both. Save for two Georgian students, the carriage had since emptied, and so we sat down, tried to stomach the now-warm beer, and rode out the remaining six hours on the train.

All for a football match. We were idiots – would Donetsk have really been worse than this? But as the hours rolled on and the outskirts of Kiev became visible, we knew that it had been, and a call to our Swedish connection confirmed that tickets had been lined up.

As we stepped off the train into the fresh air – freedom. The Canadian girls were nowhere in sight, but in our state it was irrelevant by this point. It was time to head back to the hostel we’d stayed at earlier in the week, and leave our bags with the legendary D-Man, who took one look at us and burst out laughing.

Much to our joy, England would eventually go out in an agonising penalty shootout later. The rest of the night was spent drinking and laughing with a group of Swedish and Norweigan fans, and at 5am the following morning we found ourselves back at Kyiv-Pasazhyrskyi, the central train station.

Nearly 48 hours and a handful of hours of sleep had passed since waking up to find water, and it was time to go back to Donetsk. This time, however, we’d take the fast train.

The James Squire Rogue Tales stories
James Squire (1754 – 1822) is a hero in Australian folklore, and rightly so: this ex-convict is, after-all, the father of the Australian brewing industry, having been credited with establishing Australia’s first commercial brewery in 1798. His rugged, rougue-ish legend lives on today in the image of the James Squire man, mould-breakers who push boundaries to achieve great things. In this vein, we present the James Squire ‘Rogue Tales’ stories, a series of videos featuring risk takers and the tales behind their success, as seen in this initial video teaser above.
