and once again—this would be the third go ’round, i believe—my efforts at homebrew label illustration are lifted into new reaches of effectiveness with the benefit of friend flannery’s formidable photoshop and layout mojo.
just received, below: the final layout for the label to go on our latest batch, el chupacabra, and, yes, it is indeed a terrible visual pun. that’s how i roll.
anyhow, it’s a mexican chocolate stout (about 12 oz. of chocolate, with stick cinnamon and red pepper flakes infused in vodka were what we used to take a 5-gallon batch of stout and send it south of the border). we’ve had a pretty good run with our last few batches, and we are feeling optimistic about this one.
