Of the proposed logos, I prefer the redesigned ones - particularly the yellow on brown version.
I hope it's just me, but some of the yellow on black silhouettes remind me of German WW2 military insignia. If that's a common reaction, you may need to rethink the logo.
The actual bird in flight photo is beautiful.

OK - Sat down yesterday and this morning and dialed it in a little more thanks to all of the great comments I got from people here and elsewhere. I do think that this one might be more approachable, especially for our theme. One of the best comments I got was that the FYV2 was too industrial. Here's a more organic version. Comments welcome and appreciated.




The second one really pops to me . . Something about the red font moves me to action . . .

 There is a science associating colors with mood. Yellow and red (and the mixture, orange) go with food and drink and supposedly spark some kind of sub-conscience thing. McDonalds = golden arches. Defiantly the red logo with the yellow bird outline.

Call me a luddite, but I liked the original "Flying Y2" better. Except for the yellow border on the lettering.

Of course, what I think looks cool and what pushes beer are 2 different things, but for better or worse I felt like there was an early-30s crowd appeal to the original, not unlike the new Yellowtail wine labels. Trendy and modern but not over the top, almost a thumbing of the nose to old-world snobbery. And a certain amount of cockiness that almost seems to reassure that what's inside the bottle can pull off a label like that.

Would I be out of line to suggest that it suits you? I mean it in the most offensive of all possible ways, of course.  ;D

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

That may actually be the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me before.  ;)

Hey I used a couple... kissy face and a winky.  What I really can't do is type a message without adding at least one set of dot-dot-dots.  I'm not sure what its called but it must be some sort of disease, maybe someone on here is a doctor and can write me a scrip for it?   :D
