Not Your Typical Christmas Goose! Week 51’s Beer-Type logo design was created for the Christmas season and inspired by my friend Luke and my very own homebrewed Gose-style beer. We love gose beer (pronounced “goes-uh”)—in particular Westbrook Brewing’s Gose. So we wanted to try to brew something close. We call it “gose-style” because we didn’t […]

Off-farm Beers Are Good Too! Week 48. Just when I was going through my head and milling over the types of beer for which I could make a logo… a beer style I had never tried before! Enter Bloody Butcher Appalachian Grisette from Morganton, NC’s Fonta Flora Brewery, one of the more rare beer styles […]

Bold Flavors and Heaps of Hops to Warm the Soul The weather’s getting colder in North Carolina. What better way to warm up than with a nice barrel-aged barley wine! Barleywines are strong ales with high ABV (yeah, that’ll warm you up) which typically get better with age. You’d think from the name “Barley Wine” […]

A Rather Sly Beer Logo The Beer-Type logo for Week 46 came together at the 11th hour. Literally, around 11:00pm last night, I found myself redirecting what I thought was going to be a rugged, distressed Porter logo into a hand-drawn illustration built around an entirely different font. I love it when a design comes […]

The Good Kind of Funk! Week 42’s Beer-Type logo is inspired as much by a place as it is a beer. My wife and I recently took a quick trip up to Beech Mountain, NC to meet and stay with some friends, and I’ve been thinking ever since about how I could tie that into […]

An In-Your-Face Smash Session! Week 29’s Beer-Type logo is full of angst and rebellion—utilizing a modern script font with the look of passionate brushstrokes. The name Againts looks a heck of a lot like “against” which prompted my initial designs. This typeface conjures up the look of wanting to smash something! But wait a minute, […]

Who says you can’t drink beer for breakfast? This Beer-Type logo is inspired by Skillet Donut Stout by Burial Beer Company. I went back and forth between naming this an Oatmeal Stout or a Chocolate Milk Stout, but in the end decided “breakfast” was the way to go. Have you ever tried Skillet Donut Stout? […]
