Beer Labels

Beer Labels-Mob Barley's American AleOne of my beer labels, Mob Barley's American Ale

Beer labels are a unique and personal way of showing off your hard work and keeping track of your beer, mead and wine bottles. Are you proud of your homebrewed beer, mead or wine? Do you have so many bottles of beer that it is hard to keep track of them all?

I've always made my own homebrew and wine labels. I've even entered them in WineMaker magazine's annual competition. I was lucky enough to win an honorable mention in 2006 contest for my Elderberry Wine label, and an editor's choice selection in 2008 for my mead label I Scream-Chili Mead (it's not on the website but did appear in the magazine).

There are many other homebrewers, meadmakers, and winemakers that would love to make their own custom labels but for various reasons don't. With this page, I'd like to give them some inspiration so they can see how easy it is and how cool they can look. Label design is somewhat of an art and they can run the gamut from simple and primitive to completely awesome and commercial ready.  It doesn't really matter as long as you are happy with them.  You can get them made online if you will be serving the beer at a swanky function, like a wedding.  You should be able to find quite a few beer label templates if you do a search on Google (search for "free beer label templates", then click on images below the search bar.  Pick the one you like most that is editable and printable). 

I've included a few of my homebrewing and wine labels here to get an idea of how easy it is. Just about any graphics software will work. In the past I used Print Shop for years and it seemed to work fine.  These days, I use Canva.  The free version is somewhat limited compared to Corel Draw and Photoshop, but does what I need with less of a learning curve.   When I finally learn to use Photoshop, I'll be able to really make some cool labels, I may even be able to find some great photoshop beer label templates.  

If you are looking for beer label size for printable labels, a common size for the main label is 3.75 x 4.25 inches and for the neck beer label, 3.75 x 1.5 inches.

A good place to design your own label is Grogtag.com.  Here is a video of how to design a label on their website.  You will have to pay for the labels of course, but when you need a good quality label for a special occasion, you should check them out at Grogtag.com.



If you have some labels you are proud of and would like to share with other homebrewers, enter your label information and upload the picture. It will show up in its own webpage, how cool is that?

Share your Beer Labels!

Do You Have Beer, Mead, or Wine Labels You Are Proud Of?

Do you make your own beer labels? How about sharing them with other homebrewers to give them some ideas for their own labels. I'll start it off with some of my labels for beer, mead and wine.
