You can have a different name for each bottle!

Reminds me of the white cans that say “BEER” in black letters.  Plain and simple. Everything else is overkill. Perfect.

And that stuff hit the stores around the same time as brand name water.  Hmm.

You can have a different name for each bottle!

I use the mailing labels from avery that come 30/sheet to label all my bottled beer plus different colored caps for each version.  I brew porters and stouts and often have up to four different versions per batch by adding extracts or adjuncts either directly to the bottle or sequentially to the bottling bucket as I go along.

And many times, I have different versions left in the garage fridge from a previous batch with multiple versions.

The labels help me keep it straight, especially at brew club meetings where I've sampled over-hopped IPAs and some one asks me what's in my bottle that they have just sampled.  With my taste-buds loaded with too much citra or similar hops the labels are a godsend.
It's easier to read brewing books and get information from the forum than to sacrifice virgins to appease the brewing gods when bad beer happens!
