May the Schwarz be with you…
Week 32’s Beer-Type logo was inspired by Schwarz Bier from American Honor Ale House—a second ale house and brewery location for Blowing Rock Brewing—located in Hollar Mill in Hickory, NC. I had a flight at the Ale House while enjoying the food and scenery, and this dark lager stuck in my mind like the sweet caramel and toffee notes of the beer itself. Schwarzbier (for which I’ve found spelled both with, and without a space between the words) is German for “black beer”. This beer style is very dark in color, but not heavy like a porter or stout. A great break from the normal lager. Another example of this beer style is Baba from Uinta Brewing—it’s certified organic and toasty good!
I purchased a font bundle from Mighty Deals a few weeks ago that was a grouping of fonts from Twicolabs. I’ve been itching ever since to utilize these for Beer-Type logos and Black Velvet is the first! I just love it when a name comes together.
