Basecamp Imperial Pilsner is Almanac’s latest fresh beer release, and is the first Almanac can to be included in the Lazy Dog Beer Club. Each quarter Lazy Dog Restaurants release a themed pack of limited edition beers. We were tapped to create a label design for their Bushcraft themed set, taking the subject of the outdoors and camping as the inspiration for the design.
Almanac Beer Co.’s new Nectarine Cobbler is packed with fruit flavor, so we found it only fitting that a larger than life nectarine should take center stage in our latest label design for the brewery. Almanac prides itself on using fresh produce from local farmers so we were inspired to create an Almanac-centric farm where agriculture and brewing come together. Nectarine Cobbler is a sour blonde ale aged in oak barrels with nectarines, peaches, and spices.
“Nectarine Cobbler is our version of dessert in a glass. We started with yellow nectarines from Blossom Bluff Orchards, grown in high-summer along the banks of King’s River in California’s Central Valley. Four pounds of juicy stone fruit was added to each gallon of sour blonde ale and aged in oak barrels. We spiced the blend with cinnamon, ginger, coriander, and vanilla bean to recall the aroma of a freshly baked nectarine cobbler resting on the windowsill. Pair this autumn delight with mom’s baked desserts, Indian curries, and holiday gatherings.”
Initial Concept Sketches
It's that moment you've all been waiting for. A couple months back we created a gig poster for Explosions in the Sky, and we mentioned that we would be coming out with an art print version of the poster shortly after. Well, as promised, above is the art print entitled Telescope.
The 24"x18" two color screen print has an edition of 200 and is now available in our online store.
Below are some close up shots of the the physical print.
