I brewed two beers -- an IPA and an American Amber -- as wedding favors for my brother's wedding, which is coming up this weekend. My brother's buddy designed some pretty cool labels for the beers. My brother's name is Mike and his fiancé's name is Maura, hence the "M" designs. I'm really happy with the beers, as are the bride and groom. I think the labels turned out really great too.
It's tough to read the beer descriptions on the labels, so here they are (in case there are inquiring minds):IPA
Wuh-bam! That's your nostrils being awakened by the enticingly complex aroma of this American-style IPA. With floral and citrus hop notes and a little tropical spice, generous additions of seven hop varieties are balanced by just the right amount of malty sweetness. Full-flavored, yet eminently drinkable, this IPA finishes slightly dry with a lingering hop bitterness. 6.4% ABV.American Amber
This light-garnet colored American-style ale is all about balance. Toasty grain and caramel malt flavors are met with an assertive bouquet of floral, citrus, and herbal hops. Medium bodied with a smooth finish, this is an accessible ale to be enjoyed among friends. 5.6% ABV.
In hindsight, I wish I had been a little more creative with the descriptions. I think it would have been cool to make them more personal to the bride and groom. But, all in all, I'm happy with the results.
