3 Stars Brewing Company Zombie Date Night - I’ve played just enough Plants Vs. Zombies to appreciate this cartoony undead vignette. I like that the drive-in server also has a bit of roller derby in her get up, complete with 3 stars across her chest. And what’s she serving up? Brains, of course.

La Roja Du Kriek Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales Sour Amber Ale - The poster-style direction that Adam Forman has taken the labels of Jolly Pumpkin is so compelling. The more labels Jolly Pumpkin releases, the more I feel the influence of Théophile Steinlen and Eugène Grasset. There’s really nothing else like them on the shelves. They are easily the best beer labels out there, IMO.
21St Amendment Brewery Down To Earth - Welcome back Space Monkey. Your mission is complete – we have splashdown! What to do whilst waiting for retrieval in this remote paradise? A clever monkey will fashion a hammock from his parachute and kick back with a six pack. Cold beer is too much to hope for, but at least it didn’t burn up in reentry!
Thomas Creek Brewery Conduplico Immundus Monachus - There’s a couple of these labels from Thomas Creek and I feel like they are trying to tell a series of stories. In each one (I only found two) a character representing the beer raises a glass to toast the disembodied but furry hand of an unknown drinking companion.
River Rat Brewery Sour Cherry Sucker Punch
Beer labels on the shelves of your local beer store with redheaded pinups are a dime a dozen, but this illustration of a pirate lass from Shipyard stands out. She’s not busting out of her blouse, so that’s different. I love her Mucha-inspired tendrils of hair.
Kona Brewing Company Fire Rock Pale Ale - This Fire Rock Pale Ale label illustration is another fine example of posterization, adapting a colorful landscape into a stunning, limited tone graphic.
