Brewer Highlight: Solarc Brewing

SG-Solarc-Brewing

Solarc Brewing is on point with colorful beer label designs and they have some of the best beer names all being digitally printed as matte labels.

We found a new obsession in our custom label printing world that we live in at StickerGiant. It is Custom Beer Labels! The new and different designs we get to see running through the shop for breweries around the country blows us away. Solarc has printed several custom matte labels with us and every time we see them they pop off the presses going through the factory. With beer names like “Shower Beer” and “Donkey Piss” there has to be fun art to back it up and Solarc Brewing is doing just that.

Saul and Archie are the founders of Solarc Brewing. They first connected through the LA Arts Community and bonded over a glass of mead. Like a lot of great companies in California, Solarc Brewing was started out of a garage. Not just any garage, but a barn-like garage behind Saul’s house.  The two of them have worked hard at their craft experimenting with all sorts of magic potions and concoctions that brew up some tasty craft beers. Their love of art shows as they treat Solarc Brewing as a work of art, from the beer being brewed to the label designs and branding.

It’s easy to see what makes this craft brewer stand apart, and we are always excited to see what custom label design for their beer is next.

Brewer Highlight: Bold Missy Brewery

SG-Bold-Missy-Brewery-Blog

Bold women have shaped the history of the world. Bold Missy Brewery is celebrated these strong women as they get ready to launch this April and are opening fully stocked with custom logo stickers.

The brewery is based in Charlotte, North Carolina, and they are prepping to launch in April. Carol Waggener is very passionate about beer, having spent ten years with Anheuser-Busch and now setting out on her own beer path in opening up Bold Missy Brewery.

Bold Missy is honoring great women of history in the naming of their craft beers that will be tapped soon. Here is the first line up:

  • Solo Flight American Brown ale, named after Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic
  • Find a Way Wheat, named after Diana Nyad, the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage
  • Get Your Gun Golden, named after Annie Oakley, the American sharpshooter and performer known as “little sure-shot”
  • Rocket Ride IPA, named for Sally Ride, the first American female in space

Their logo features a white bottle cap with a lipstick kiss on it. In the name “Bold” it takes the place of “o” and makes for a very compelling design. They printed up three different custom kiss cut stickers with us. The first featuring just the bottle cap logo. The second features the main logo as a custom circle sticker with the name “Bold Missy Brewery” on a red background. The third one is a rectangular, bumper sticker sizes white background featuring the full name and logo.

With a fun brewery location and strong branding, Bold Missy Brewery stickers are going to be spreading fast in the coming months as some great beers get tapped.

Parade of Darks Metro Caring

SG-Parade-of-Darks

In the spirit of the Holiday season, dozens of breweries are coming together to support Metro Caring with the 5th Annual Parade of Darks, featuring craft beers from amber to black.

This Saturday, December 3rd from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. the holiday cheer will start spreading with tastings of over sixty plus beers available featuring seasonal and year-round. The dark-beer, holiday fest and fundraiser is taking place at the Turnhalle Room in the Tivoli Student Union which is located on the Auraria Campus in Denver, Colorado. The best part is 100% of the forty-five dollar ticket price goes directly to Metro Caring which helps provide a week of food to six hungry Coloradans.

So what is Metro Caring?

“As Denver’s leading hunger-prevention organization on the front lines, Metro Caring meets people’s immediate need for food while also sustainably addressing the root causes of hunger and poverty. Using a multifaceted approach, Metro Caring is an innovative leader in addressing problems related to hunger, with programming offered in Healthy Foods Access, Nutrition/Gardening Education, and Self-Sufficiency.”

To help promote this great cause, we printed up some amazing custom logo stickers for Metro Caring to get the word out. Their sticker design features three foaming over pints of beer with the year in the middle above the “Parade of Darks” copy with the Metro Caring logo placed at the bottom. The sticker itself is a custom shape around the logo design to make it stand out for those who slap it on when leaving the event.

Cheers to the Holidays and letting stickers spread great causes that help people out.

Brewer Highlight: Rally King Brewing

SG-Rally-King-Brewing

It’s time to rally! Rally King Brewing is pouring a huge selection of great craft beers in Fort Collins, Colorado while spreading their brand with custom die cut stickers.

So what is a rally king? The definition of Rally is to “come together again in order to continue fighting after a defeat or dispersion to bring into order again.” The rally cry in this case is how life can just be crazy and Rally King Brewing decided to pursue their passion despite it all and rally together people with great craft beer.

Rally King has a line up beers from hoppy to wheat and a little bit of everything in-between for all beer connoisseurs. Similar to their line up of different color and flavor beers pouring out everyday, they printed up four different Die Cut Stickers to let people represent their craft brewery in a variety of ways. These custom circle stickers are about the size of a coaster and make for a fun walkaway promotion for Rally King Brewing.

Through great brews at a fun location Powder Keg Brewing Co. is spreading out with custom beer labels.

Gather around, it is time for craft beer to bring community together at the Powder Keg. Their location is in Niwot, Colorado and the goal is to make ales and lager that spark community. In doing so, Powder Keg has set up an awesome tap room with not only beer but food, wine, cider and live music on occasion. Now, they set their eyes on spreading their delicious beers into homes in the area.

This Fall they just released and distributed two beers called the Lettre Rouge and Quartet that are small batches bottled up to hit the road.

Brewer Spotlight: Avery Brewing Co.

Avery Brewing is all about brewing beer for eccentric pallets as they roll out different styles of ale and lager that can’t be categorized. One of their recent year round additions is El Gose and they are getting the word out through custom stickers that match the beer can art.

Avery Brewing has been around since 1993 and over the years has won several awards for their craft beers. Just last year they moved into a large new facility in Gunbarrel, Colorado that has an amazing tap room for beer drinking. They also offer guided tours of their facility every day.

Since their beginning, Avery has used stickers as a big part of getting their brand out through fans. It would actually be hard to spend anytime in the Boulder County area and not see an Avery sticker on the back of a car. In their recent release of El Gose, they designed a sticker with the skull art from the beer brand and listed their name at the bottom. The tag line for El Gose is “¡Salud and Prost!” which is “Cheers” in Spanish and German which is feature on the top of the sticker. This design plays into the mixture of styles used to make El Gose. The digitally printed custom sticker looks great with the colorful art really popping out of the design.

El Gose is a German-style sour ale with lime and sea salt added. As Avery states on their website, “A timeless, traditional tart gose (goes-uh) with its zesty and salty disposition is brightened by a tangy citrus twist. A bier for every día!”

Matching their unique style in beer with their sticker branding, we can’t wait to taste and see the next great craft beer from Avery Brewing. Check out this quick video showing the Avery Brewing facility:
