Well Brewed Design

April 5, 2012  |  Baltimore

Baltimore is known for a lot of things; water, crabs, hons, and sporty birds. But more recently, you can add beer to that list. Thanks to Draft Magazine, Baltimore is the proud owner of 2 spots in their America’s 100 Best Beer Bars list (Brewer’s Art and Max’s Taphouse). With all these quality brews in B-more, I thought it’d be a good time to pay homage to some beautiful beer label and packaging designs.

In my search for beautiful beers, I appropriately stumbled upon Oh Beautiful Beer.
This clever website was designed by Harvey Shepard and launched in January 2011
to celebrate “remarkable graphic design in the world of beer.” And I think it does
just that.

Here's a few pics that caught my eye on the site. Be sure to check the site for more beautiful projects!

Metaphor IPA

All this talk about beer label design reminds me that OE took a stab at label design back in the day. You can check out the project here.

And on the more local side of things, Mr. Boh has gotten a quite a facelift in honor of Camden Yards’ 20th Anniversary.  Be sure to check these new cans out at your local watering hole, or better yet, snag one at Opening Day tomorrow!
