We love designing labels for all of the limited, special edition beers that Almanac creates, but we also love the beers that are most likely to find a home in a bottle shop near you. That’s why we’re happy to introduce Almanac’s new line of 16oz fresh beers that will be available year round, and with nationwide distribution. LOVE Hazy IPA, LOUD! Hazy DIPA, and VIBES Pilsner. Printed on metallized label stock, these super sparkly cans also contain a not-so-hidden word inside each geometric pattern. You can also try these new beers on draft at Almanac’s two bay area taprooms.

Almanac’s latest release, Side Hustle Hazy IPA, continues our experimentation with metallized printing stock, giving this label a wraparound 70s era golden shimmer. Side Hustle is also the first of Almanac’s rotating hops series, so we also had fun creating a new icon for the labels - a call to check the bottom of the can for the seasonal selection of hops in the current batch. Check out a few photos fresh from the canning line below.
We’re thrilled to have joined forces with Under Armour to help promote their You Vs. The Year challenge, taking place all 2018-long through their Map My Run platform. We crunched the data of more than 150,000 participants over the course of the first quarter of the year, and uncovered some mind boggling stats including the fact that the group covered over 23 million kilometers, enough to circle the earth 584 times!

The latest IPA release from Almanac is their Don’t Call It Frisco Double IPA. To commemorate the beer and the city of its origin, we created a label illustration depicting San Francisco residents spanning the history of the city. To go along with the beer, Almanac also released a t-shirt featuring the characters from the label. Both are available at Almanac’s two Bay Area locations.
"Don’t Call it Frisco 16oz Cans! Check out the full wrap label for this dry special hop bomb, wrapped in an illustrated history of San Francisco residents and epochs, each contributing to our favorite city’s unique character. Brought to life by the pixel-pushers at DKNG Studios, we can’t wait to share this incredible DIPA with you. Brewed with an irresponsible amount of hops, Don’t Call It Frisco! is our locals-only lupulin bomb. This impossibly fresh Double IPA is made to be enjoyed within days of packaging. A simple malt base provides the liquid canvas for a double dry-hop of Citra and Galaxy hops, producing aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit, stone fruit, and lemongrass. Call it fresh, call it hoppy, juicy or dank—just Don’t Call It Frisco!"
Almanac continues to roll out new beer from their brand new Alameda brewery, and next up is their Dynamo Donut Imperial Stout made with real donuts. We were inspired by the ingredients and featured them on a bright, multicolored label. Dynamo Donut Imperial Stout is now available at both Almanac locations in the Bay Area while they last.
"Wrapped in this gorgeous pop-art label from DKNG Studios, this decadent pastry stout comes by its pastry-ness authentically: with a baker’s dozen donuts in the mash. Fun fact: we had to do special paperwork with the Feds to get “Donuts” listed as an official beer ingredient. Taste this amazing stout in 16 oz cans on Friday when 16 oz cans release in San Francisco & Alameda. Dynamo Donut Imperial Stout is a beer inspired by a donut. An amazing, handmade, yeast-fermented donut, laden with real maple syrup and crispy bacon, to create the perfect balance of sweet and savory flavors. With a box of breakfast inspiration in hand, we combined cherrywood smoked malt, maple sugar, freshly roasted coffee, and vanilla beans to make something truly decadent. The result is an inky, rich beer, that pairs perfectly with breakfast or dessert."
We’re excited to announce our latest collaboration with the Bob Moog Foundation, in the form of a new edition of synthesizer inspired art prints. Each Moog-inspired art print is a reissue of the original editions previously released in conjunction with the Synth art shows at Moogfests 2010-2012. This second edition printing includes updated color palettes and glow-in-the-dark details for each edition of 150 prints.
Fifty percent of profits benefit the Bob Moog Foundation to support their educational and historic preservation efforts. The four-color screen-printed posters are printed on French Paper Co. Pop-Tone papers. Check out photos of the art prints below as well as their glow-in-the-dark details. The three Moog art prints will be available in the DKNG Store while supplies last.
