I try to keep up on the new label art that comes out of Delaware breweries (and sometimes local favorites outside Delaware) but I’ve never done a post like this before.
You see, not only are bottle/can labels available, but keg labels as well. Now, I don’t normally share these because there’s rarely anything to them, usually just a ring shaped label with some words and a box checked indicating what beer is inside.
But I thought for the fun off it, I’d share some of these recent keg labels along with some new label art that will soon be arriving at your favorite brewery/liquor store. In fact, you might have seen a few of these already as I’ve been hording some of these for quite some time.
First, let’s spread some love to the non-beer folks by starting with a beautiful array of label art for wines and meads from the folks over at Brimming Horn Meadery.
Next up is a couple of labels from Painted Stave Distilling, the corn whiskey with the mesquite and apple wood smoked malts sounds interesting.
Time for some beer, first up, Mispillion River with a keg label for Dank Lord IPA (I told you these keg labels usually weren’t all that exciting) followed by their new label art for Weiss City, a Berliner Weisse brewed with mangoes and oranges.
Next, let’s look at a couple of things from Dogfish Head, keg labels for Firefly Ale (which should be no stranger to DFH fans), Unencumbered Antelope (saison brewed with cantaloupe and cucumber), In Your Mace (which DFH describes as “a coffee milk stout brewed with cinnamon verum chips from the Zanzibar Islands, mace spice, milk sugars, coffee, chicory and most importantly … chili oils, the active ingredient in Mace Brand (yep, the pepper spray).”), and new label art for the tasting room exclusive Viniferous, another attempt to win over the wine/beer hybrid fans. The beer is hopped with Hallertau Blanc, Huell Melon, and El Dorado while containing fermented Riesling and Viognier grape must.
And finally, a few keg labels from 3rd Wave Brewing, Surf School, a New England Style IPA and Juice Box a Berliner Weisse.
