Home-brewing. I'm totally into it. Seriously - I'm a little wacked about spending hours leaning over a hot kettle o' wort.

And what I love almost as much? Putting the labels on those finished bottles of sweet, sweet beer - it's just like putting a frame around a beautiful painting.

So how about treating your hand-crafted brew to the customized label it deserves?

::: Here's the deal :::

This oval label is a classic style, featuring a swooping beer-esque banner across the center and cluster of fat, sticky hops (my original illustration) in the background.

I will typeset a custom electronic PDF version just for you.

You'll print the file out on your own printer, cut out the labels, and stick them to your bottles*.

Whether you have a fancy color printer or a black and white laser, you're covered - I'll send you TWO versions of the labels, one for each kind of printer.

::: The ordering stuff :::

There are four customizable areas. This is what you'll need to tell me at checkout:

1. BREWERY - or your name, or your dog's name (no more than 21 letters, including spaces)

2. BEER NAME (no more than 15 letters, including spaces)

3. DATE (I can also leave this as a blank line for you to fill in yourself)

4. ABV - alcohol by volume (this line can also be left blank, or left off altogether - just let me know)

Once I've got the COMPLETE and FINAL information, I’ll create your PDF file and email it to you within two days.

Print 'em, cut 'em out, and stick 'em on -- your beer now looks as good as it tastes.

::: A couple of notes :::

*How to attach your labels:

1. Milk! Yup -- plain ol' milk is far and away the best way to attach a beer label. Just sponge a tiny amount of milk on the back of the label, slap it on the bottle, and let it dry. I use another sponge to wipe up any excess. You won't believe how good it looks or how well it holds - you'd think that's why cows made the stuff. For your next batch, the labels come off easily with a little warm water. Also? It totally doesn't smell.

2. Gluesticks (water soluble) like Elmer's works well too, and is a bit less messy than milk. Also soaks off with water.

3. You can print these on Avery label sticker stock, too - they'll stick like nobody's business, but getting the labels back off again is pretty tricky. Go with the milk.

What kind of paper to use:

I use plain ol' laser printer paper. It really doesn't matter too much, as long as the paper is thin enough to easily wrap around the bottle. If it's too thick, it wants to flatten out and unstick itself.

Label colors:

Colors look different on every screen and every printer, and I can’t guarantee that what comes out of your printer is going to look like what's on your screen.
