Conveniently for the holiday gift season, these smart brewers also sell larger-scale versions that make perfect gifts for beer lovers. Here, five breweries that sell prints of their amazing labels.
Portland, Oregon’s Gigantic Brewery works with local artists and up-and-coming talents from across the globe to design labels for their limited-edited beers. Each newbie works with Rob Reger, a renowned comic artist who was one of the brewery’s first investors, as well as Portland’s Hellion Gallery. The labels range in style from the vibrant, ultra-bright graphic work of Tokyo artist Nigamushi to the eerily surreal style of Portland-based multimedia artist Joe Shea. Sixteen-by-twenty-inch posters of the labels are available for $60 on Giagntic’s website.

Every season, Dogfish Head chooses a new artist to create labels, posters and merchandise for their four seasonal offerings: Aprihop, Festina Peche, Punkin Ale and Piercing Pils. This year’s artist is Rich Kelly, an illustrator who has made posters for bands like Phish, Primus, The Black Keys and Dave Matthews Band. His theme for the labels: a traveling Dogfish Head circus. All four posters are available now on Dogfish Head’s website for $20 for the four-pack.
