    We all Name our beers, for those who bottle, do you make labels? I just you would only have to make 1 label for kegs.
    Here are a bunch of the ones I have done, show some of yours.

    I've not made labels but I made caps for a batch. I brewed the same day we cut down a bunch of trees in the yard and my wife got this picture of our kids and the neighbor's kids sitting on the tree.

    I bottle and would like to learn more about labeling
    Q: Is there a spray on water soluble adhesive you guys are using
    Q: Do you buy a label kit or just cut them out

    I have a bit of a hobby in graphic arts so I make all my own labels on Adobe. I send all mine down to staples to get them printed on an 8 x 11 or 8 x 14. I cut all my labels by hand, but I bottle in 1 L or half litre bottles, so I usually don't have more than 20-24 labels. To attach them put some milk in a saucer Dip the label in and place it on the bottle,a quick wipe with a paper towel and they stay on.

    How the hell are you guys creative enough to make these? I have enough trouble coming up with a name to put on the masking tape.

    Holy shit. That's impressive. I need to show that to my wife, she's pretty good with photoshop and that might give her inspiration for me to leach off of. ;)

    Heya guys..I'm not talented enough to come up with a fancy label so I have been using different color caps and a fine point Sharpie to keep track of batches. I really dig the cap art Haycicle came up with....how'd ya do that guy? I have been thinking about a rubber stamp and some permanant ink or a stencil to get a little fancier but was curious about other ideas....what do you do?
