Labels for new beers, or new labels for existing beers, are approved every day. With craft beer in its current boom state, new label approvals can reach into the hundreds each week. I plan to make this a feature likely focusing on local breweries, beers we’re looking forward to, or those labels that are simply interesting in and of themselves.
Fresh on the heels of the label for the highly anticipated Zombie Dust, Three Floyds has also been busy with a number of other labels.
Three Floyds Jinx Proof – 5.10% ABV Dortmunder. While previously only available at the brewpub in 22oz bottles and with a different label, this approval was for 12oz bottles. At the time of writing this, it was unclear if it would now be distributed outside of the brewpub as well.
Brewdog & Three Floyds collaboration Bitch Please – 11.5% ABV Barleywine. As this has existed overseas for a while now, it appears this approval is finally for a stateside release in 350ml bottles (11.16oz).
Mikkeller & Three Floyds collaboration Boogoop – 10.4% ABV Buckwheat Wine. This 22oz bottled brew is the fourth in a line of collaborations between these two breweries, the others being Hvedegoop, Ruggoop and Oatgoop.
Sun King Oktoberfest – 5.8% Oktoberfest. While not a new beer in the Sun King repertoire, I believe this is a new 16oz can from them.
New Albanian Jaxon – 11% ABV Barleywine. Look for this offering in 22oz bombers from the New Albany, IN brewery. Alternately, just look for my dog on the label! (Note: Not actually my dog on the label.)
Clown Shoes Muffin Top – 10% ABV Belgian-style Tripel India Pale Ale. This is for the 22oz version. The 12oz was approved a couple of weeks ago if I understand correctly. Clown Shoes, based out of Ipswich, MA, generally supplies their own jokes and this is no exception.
Also, a special mention here to South Bend’s own Four Horsemen Brewing Company who just had a truckload of various sized keg labels approved, as did Evil Genius for whom FHBC is contract brewing.
