Hot Off the Press: Beer Design

February 6, 2013

PsPrint is kicking off what is sure to be a hoptastic San Francisco Beer Week with our own “Hot Off the Press” showcasing all things beer. Brewers, pubs and other beer-centric businesses and individuals have been trusting PsPrint with their printing for years, from homebrew labels to business card handouts to growler and keg stickers to poster, postcard and flyer marketing. Craft brewers often come up with unique logos and label graphic design. One reason is that they compete with the big beer companies for store shelf space – therefore, the more eye-catching the package design, the more likely a consumer will choose that six-pack or bottle. This week’s “Hot Off the Press” is just a sample of the variety of beer designs we’ve printed recently, including ThirstyBear Brewing’s postcard calendar of SF Beer Week events. I myself am kicking off SF Beer Week by hopping on public transportation to imbibe in PsPrint customer Heretic Brewing’s tapping of its Bourbon Grave at Zeitgeist. If chocolate is more what tickles your taste buds than beer, then be sure to check out last week’s “Hot Off the Press,” which highlighted Valentine’s Day design. Otherwise, raise a toast to SF Beer Week and sudstastic printing inspiration!
