New AHA Logo
« on: August 15, 2011, 08:58:08 AM »
I'm pleased announce that the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) now has a new logo. The AHA's most recent logo was more than a decade old, and the time was right to freshen up the look and feel to reflect the fun and passion for homebrewing found in the AHA membership and the hobby as a whole.

The new logo incorporates several graphic elements that represent the hobby, including a hop cone, a barley stalk and a tall glass of beer, on a circular background that evokes the shape of a bottle cap. The AHA staff and our graphic design team worked hard on this redesign, and we're thrilled with this new visual representation of the AHA, our members and the broader homebrewing community.



Cheers!

I hadn't realized that the old logo was a decade old. Out with the old and in with the new. I like the new look. Nice symmetry and assemblage of ingredients.

What do you mean no yeast?  There's a cell between the barley and the glass, shown to scale. ;) ;D

I had to refresh myself as to what the old logo was...the AHA letters with the stylistic barley stalks.  The new logo is very nice.  Good work.

A really bad pop band from the '80s?

But a classic song video...even the Family Guy did a spinoff of it.  :D
