Rheingold Beer

Rheingold Beer

I’ll warn you now. I have a gaping soft spot for “old man beer.” But I don’t think my bias is affecting me here. Everything about this packaging – the design elements, color palette and “Good Beer” slogan – are simple and no-nonsense. Exactly what you’d expect from a 128 year old beer.

Vintage beer brands are certainly enjoying a spike in popularity, and this packaging positions Rheingold very well to be the one to reach for on the shelf.

Oh, and don’t go looking for the “Good Beer” type face. Neil reports it’s hand-drawn.
