One thing that you HAVE to know about us is the fact that we LOVE design - all design but when it comes to beer - graphic design. Yes, you can drink good and in fact great beer in just a normal looking bottle or growler - but when a company goes through the trouble to hire a team of designers that take their logo and run with it - well, we just can't think of anything finer.

For some reason, craft beer coming out of a fine looking bottle just tastes better.

We aren't the only ones to notice either. Prime Social Marketing wrote Logo Design tips with 8 of the best-looking craft beer brands while Harvey Shepard started a website entitled Oh Beautiful Beer to showcase stellar craft beer graphics.

Along the way, Derek and I have found the breweries whose graphics we truly appreciate. Of course, the beer has to come first - it doesn't work as well to have a great looking label but bad beer now does it.

Here are some of our favourites:

I just have to say off the bat that as of yet (Dec. 2013) we have not been to the Twisted X nor have we sampled their beer. We aim to change that early next year. On the other hand, we just cannot deny that they have a really cool label. Can't wait to get the t-shirt!

Update: We have yet to visit Twisted X - it wasn't on our route this year - hopefully next winter. By the way we found out the genius designer behind the artwork - Joshua Rowan

The Wychwood Brewery graphics are great. Their website is a real show stopper!

Ska Brewing
Ska Brewing is another craft brewery with a great website.

Frog Level Brewing
Simple but effective. LOVE the frog print.

Santa Fe Brewing

Another great website - check out the clinking bottles!

Iron Horse Brewery

Apparently we are partial to skulls! And death, and Irish!

Half Acre Beer Company

You just have to love Half Acre's artwork!

    Its been a while since i have jumped into the field of Graphics Designing. I would say i was right to make this decision. I keep browsing through new Graphics Resources online. This is a nice master piece you have got about Graphics Designing. Actually i collect graphics resources and share other people's useful resources too on my blog which you can read here.
