If you're like anything like me, you've spent a lot of time around beer. Beer packaging can set the tone for many gatherings. From the familiar downhome Budweiser logo design to the craft beer logos with modern art design elements seen on tons of beer cans lining the shelves and coolers today.
Beer brands get into our heads not only through the beer labels but through t-shirt swag, retro neon signs, and social media. The best beer logos use typography and graphic design to make us grab that six-pack off the shelf over and over again. And while great beer comes with many different great label designs, some stick in our subconscious better than others.
Craft breweries like 21st Amendment (named after the repeal of Prohibition) jump out with bright colors, clever labels depicting historic events, and overall a great packaging design.
Brand identity can take a while to build and classic brewing companies like Heineken, Budweiser, Guinness, Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Corona (the non-virus one) have all planted themselves in our heads and hearts.
