I’m finishing up this label design for an upcoming special release beer for YVBC, and wanted to share some of the illustration work and give a sneak peek at the overall label. I had a lot of fun with the concept of this beer, and developing to character image of the BF (Bravo Foxtrot). A Bravo Foxtrot, aka Blue Falcon, is a person that somehow manages to ruin everything good for the rest of us. YVBC wanted to push this idea further by having the BF embody the uninformed, unaware, unintelligible, nose to the air, blind to the world, mass consumer of quantity over quality—specifically, the beer drinkers who are stuck on bland macro-brews masquerading as real “beer”. Make an effort to know more about who makes your beer, where it comes from, which ingredients it contains, and wherever you are, seek out and support local breweries—don’t be a Blue Falcon!
Look for this limited release, dark belgian stong ale, brewed with blackberries and honey, aged on french oak chips, cinnamon, vanilla, and sweet orange peel to go on sale soon.
In case all this rain is making you thirsty, YVBC will reopen this weekend, and by the end of the month, they will be featuring all 6 of their beers in their taproom, including Big Red Rye on tap. Equi-vets also partnered with YVBC to host their Hops For Heroes benefit tonight from 5-11, and the Big Red Rye will be flowing. Come out to support a good cause and drink some great beer. Cheers!
HOPS For HEROES is happening tomorrow!
YVBC Taproom doors will be OPEN once more!
It will be the release of our Big Red Rye IPA!
As the brewers of the these beers, our favorite can vary. It depends on our mood or the season, etc… Our favorite was Jet Noise Double IPA this last summer. Lately it’s been our Night Vision American Stout. But right now, the new “Brewer Favorite” is the Big Red Rye IPA.
We are really excited to share it with you!
