30 Unique Microbrew Beer Label Designs You’ve Never Seen

Microbreweries are finally beginning to receive the respect and attention they deserve, especially from flavor-starved Americans who have tired of the same ol’ domestic mainstays.  Many supermarkets now carry dozens of microbrew offerings, and some even offer mix ‘n match packs so you can take home a variety of brews to try.  One of the coolest things about microbrews is their creative labels; unbound by national brand restrictions and free to experiment with different flavors, names and themes, microbreweries routinely release some of the most unique designs in all the packaging world.  Just check out the following 30 unique microbrew beer label designs you’ve (probably) never seen.

    I want to drink all of these.

    Ha ha, most definitely!

    Never seen? Most of these are pretty easy to find.

    Hey Jonny, thanks for your comment. It must depend where you live; in my neck of the woods, I’ve only ever seen a couple of these brands, let alone specific beer labels. Thanks for posting!

    I’m a beer person, and I live in San Francisco. There are quite a few on the list that are new to me.

    I’ve heard of most of those breweries but have only actually seen 10 of those particular beers. I went to a bar yesterday where most of the people were drinking Shock Top, so I think it’s important to point out these craft beers as much as possible. Hellhound on My Ale is my favorite — label- and beer-wise!

  7. Brian Morris February 21, 2013 at 1:22 pm #

    Hellhound on My Ale has an awesome label, I’ll try it if I ever find it. I love the White Rascal label, too. Coincidentally, Yeti showed up at my local supermarket the other day, so I took a four-pack home. All I can say is WOW – robust doesn’t even begin to describe it.

    I’m a big fan of stouts and porters, so if I see Yeti at the store I will definitely pick it up.
