Only thing about the logo is that it looks like a coffee stain. But perhaps that's the point?

yerp your close, its a beer stain, that had the faint outline on NZ in it, so I tweaked it in Photoshop to sharpen it up.

If you want a serious answer, you should do some market exposure with quantitative evaluation. Please send me 2 XL's and I will send you a complete report on market response in two years.

graphics look good, just a piece of advice about t-shirt making, don't skimp on the quality of the shirt. go with something like american apparel instead of the default brand whereever you are getting it made, the difference of a few bucks per shirt is so minor when compared against the quality difference, you won't be disappointed.

If you don't already have a place to get these made or if they don't give you enough options, I can point to the place i've used in the past.

I think if you're going to be selling them, don't do it here.  If you just want opinions, no problem!

I think it looks like a coffee stain too.  I don't know how to make it more obviously beer without including a pint glass.

No I am not intending on selling them here, just after some market feedback

replace the ring with an empty pint glass with the foam sliding down the sides - better yet, remove the glass and just have the Belgian lace remaining.  I could do it for a shirt or two...  ;D

I agree. I think the stain is a rather unpleasant reminder that your beer is gone. And the color reminds me of coffee first, not beer. An empty pint or foam lacing would evoke more positive memories.

I kinda think it looks almost like the outline of a planet & a statement that it's time to leave & corrupt the next one.

cool feedback guys keep it up.

Its interesting that a lot of peoples first impression is a coffee stain, maybe the addition of the word "beer" somewhere might help.

Yes it was planned to have a planet symbolism, showing new zealand down the bottom, in it little corner of the world.

"Another1" is also a hinted that when you go to the bar because you have run out of beer, you can order "another one" to try and evoke the thought that you can have another one.
