    Thanks for letting me know about Oh beautiful Beer, Chris — what a great site!

    I wrote an article for Hot Rum Cow a couple of years ago about my favourite beers that also have beautiful labels. It’s now been republished online: [http://www.hotrumcow.co.uk/beautiful-beer-by-design/](hotrumcow.co.uk/beautiful-beer-by-design)

    In general my taste leans towards very heavily-hopped IPAs and challenging sours. I also got into craft beer through a love of Belgian beers, so I’m always partial to a strong Belgian tripel.

    Design-wise, I’m up for anything. From elaborate, illustrative stuff like those on Odell’s beers to über-minimal, let-the-hops-speak-for-themselves labels like those from The Kernel.

      Thanks Elliot - will check out the article.

      Yeah Oh Beautiful Beer has become pretty popular - even launched a book http://amzn.to/1TV0pjV - which is great to see.

      I've been pretty impressed with some of the classic design work done in beer as well and have been collecting some pretty great labels from Belgium from the 80s, 70s, even 60s.

      It is really great to see good design in this space now.
