We all believe in brewing a bit differently, but Relic Brewing has turned it into a business. This Connecticut nanobrewery specializes in small batch craft beer, like a hoppy spring rye lager or an American IPA with flavors of lemon, grapefruit, and late-added brown sugar. To prove that their beer is art, they put as much care into their design work, too.
Designer Kieran McCabe explained his scheme: "The logo is meant to be an illustration of both the artistic and
creative nature of craft brewing as well as a nod to traditional beer
iconography. Relic's vision for all of it's artwork is to let the beer
be the inspiration and it all has to be as unique and interesting as the
beer." The logo has great old-school flair, and the labels are wonderfully complex. If the package looks this good, the beer must be fantastic!
