Beverage Roundtable: Craft beermania!

What's the best package design to use in a craft beer category overflowing with creativity? Pull up a virtual bar stool, watch and learn — then throw-down a tip in the comments thread.

 

For this episode, our Guest Critics picked three craft beers to illustrate varying approaches to successful package design. Leffe Belgian Ales uses a classic shouldered bottle, gold labeling and old-world graphics to reflect their historic Abbey roots. Viru beer disrupts category cues with a highly sculpted and hyper-minimal neck label, while Sixpoint Craft Ales joins a a new breed of high-end brews using aluminum cans, and dives deeply into hipsterish graphics with extreme attention to detail.
