Sunshine & Opportunity is one of Almanac’s most popular barrel aged sours, now making an appearance in a can for the first time. The name is inspired by the California gold rush, so we wanted the can to be extra sparkly but more importantly, to feel like the sun was shining directly on the can, complete with casting shadows. Incorporating a spectrum of color also helped give it a fun bright sunshiny look. Amazing photography provided by Almanac Beer Co.
The much anticipated followup to our original Nectarine Cobbler beer label, for Almanac’s Fruit Cobbler, a whole bunch of larger than life blueberries joined the fun, and we also added new metallic elements to the label giving it some extra shimmer. With much of our packaging work sticking to aluminum cans, it was fun to revisit one of our favorite bottle shapes for this barrel aged sour.
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.
