I'm better now.
Still, it's the season and there are a ton of creepy labels, so let's take a look at a few.
First up, the famed Surly Darkness can art:
In 2008, tattoo artist, Nik Skrade, designed the label... In 2009, local artist, Dave Witt was commissioned for the Darkness artwork, and the City of Brooklyn Center joined the party. This year, Aesthetic Apparatus has designed the label and is beginning the new tradition of a yearlong series of original artwork for our beer. So, that’s how this humble little/big beer became the unexpected juggernaut you now hold in your hands. Let’s raise a glass to all the artists and beer geeks that have made it possible!”Looks like we'll be seeing more from Aesthic Apparatus (not a bad name for a design studio), so I'll look forward to it.
Next up, Flossmoor Station's Beelzebeer Ale.
The most interesting creepy labels we'll be looking at are from Freetail Brewing in San Antonio:
The last Halloween labels are from back in July, but fit thematically.
