New beer – Bazyliszek Mordor — February 12, 2015

New beer – Bazyliszek Mordor

Browar Bazyliszek from Warsaw is another pretty interesting craft brewery from Poland. Its latest brew is their second Russian Imperial Stout with pretty cool name: MORDOR.

I quite admire their portfolio so I´m adding batch of their labels to the post as well and I´m not sure. They are very clever and funny but I don´t know if I like them or not. The brewery logo is perfect but the mix of photography and hand graphic… See for yourself.

A beauty from Poland – Cziechan Poter — December 15, 2014

A beauty from Poland – Cziechan Poter

Ciechan brewery from Ciechanow is one of the more interesting bigger breweries in Poland. Their beers are not bad and they have quite a good PR department. And this is one of their best ideas. December Porter is thick, full beer that you can buy in ordinary bottles but now if you have an acces to some good polish beer store you may be able to purchase this beauty. Limited edition of it in awesome bottle. I´m not sure how many of them are available but it looks just perfect.

The city of Cvikov (Zwickau) has a brewery again! — December 5, 2014

The city of Cvikov (Zwickau) has a brewery again!

These lands in the outskirts of Czechia had and still have a very diffilcut times. Almost deserted after the WWII because of the expulsion of Germans from Czechoslovakia many tradicions vanished. Breweries are perfect example. There were lost of german-owned breweries in Sudetenland until 1948 and almost all of them were gone very quickly after this date. But some of them are coming back.

The newest one is Cvikov brewery in Northern Czechia. It was opened last week and I´m big fan of this project. I like the labels – they somehow reminds me something like 80´s design and I love the idea of bringing back old breweries to life. Hopefully their beer will beas good as this whole project.

Five more absolutely ridiculous Polish beer labels.

I admire and love Polish craft beer. I really do. But sometimes I just wonder who makes some of it. 🙂 Don´t get me wrong I am not complaining much – I am quite thrilled. Look at these labels from breweries Podgorz and Chmelarium. Funny? Amateur? Artsy? Ridiculous?

I know that it´s pretty hard to sell craft beer in Poland, country where beer culture is not as developed as we might want, so I suppose that these labels aim to catch some attention between non-beer geeks. But still… Maybe I´m old fashioned but please pay more attention to label design – bad fonts and clipart won´t do much.

So, what do you think?

P.S. Pssssst, okay, I admit – Sniezny kockodan is perfect… 😀

I love it!
