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 […]

Wild Ride

Get set for a Wild Ride! Week 49’s Beer-Type logo was once again inspired by a type of beer rather than the typeface itself. I knew I wanted to create Christmas style beer logo, but not one that was over-the-top with holly berries or Santa hats. I also knew I wanted to create a stout […]

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 […]

Feast of Flesh

Sometimes Scary Good, Other Times Just Plain Scary Fall brings leaves of color, trick-or-treaters and all kinds of new craft beers to try! Of course many of those seasonal brews are pumpkin beers. They seemed to arrive super-early this year, much like how Christmas comes earlier and earlier every year. Pumpkin beers get mixed reviews, […]

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, […]

Spoleto

Spoleto is a font that you have probably seen many times before. It’s one of my favorite script fonts, and I’m currently using it on the Hoppalachia and Knotty Gurl craft beer labels for Granite Falls Brewery. It’s a great font for a beer logo, but I’m not fond of it’s numbers. They don’t seem […]

Thirsty

Ok, so I couldn’t resist. What better name for a beer font logo than Thirsty? It’s not quite the dog-days of Summer just yet, but the warmer weather has me thinking about sippin’ brewskies by the side of the pool. A Summer Shandy is your craft beer of the week, you ask? Why yes, because […]
