The Art of Craft Beer Labels is What’s Tappening
Yes, I misspelled the word "Labels" in the below video and didn't notice it until I was uploading it.
And no, I don't care enough to change it, reexport, and reupload. Gonna have to chalk it up to the poor schooling system in America.
In the meantime, Charlie Cole takes us to school as we talk about Wake's Hazy IPA called Locust Star which got us down the path of "branding" a beer and a brewery. I think Wake does an amazing job because when you look at a beer label, you know it's from Wake.
Charlie talks about the process of making the beer labels.

Crawford Brew Works in Bettendorf is tapping a beer for charity. The Boot Camp Lager is back! Originally brewed to honor a former CBW assistant brewer that took his work boots from the taproom to the ground for the US military. So in continuing to honor Corey and our current military, CBW is donating $1 from each pour this Saturday Sept. 4th to a local military-based organization to be announced. There will be food and live music throughout the afternoon. BONUS: the weather is looking great for some patio beers.
