Great Divide Brewing

Great Divide Brewing

March 7, 2011 | Designed by Cultivator Advertising & Design

Great Divide brews big, strong beers, typically over 7% alcohol. So the huge typography and forcefully named beers are especially fitting. The amusing little silhouettes are a great touch, as is the quality matte paper they are printed on.

These labels, rolled out in 2008, were actually the third label change for the brewery in a four year span. (Click here for a look at the previous version.) The contents of these bottles have won a long list of awards, and the brewery has been ranked in the top ten in the world, so it’s nice to see the label design get caught up.

Be sure to check out the Great Divide flickr page for an excellent gallery of their bottles and labels.
