I've also used beer for many of my labels.  I made the mistake of using pre-gummed shipping labels on my first couple of batches - don't, they won't come off with any amount of PBW or oxyclean.  Those bottles all ended up in the recycling bin.  On advice from wiser brewers, I now thin elmer's glue in water and use a brush to apply.  They drop right off in warm water during cleaning.
