Adam Madison is the man behind many labels. He’s got it all figured out: He brews the beer, comes up with a label concept and then gets someone else to handle the art. (Slick trick, Adam!) This year, he takes third for Mardi Graz Märzen, with illustration by his cousin Andrew Guschl, a designer in Delaware. Adam’s amateur entry, drawn by his stepdad Dave Douglas, is the “Wee Wee Heavy” on page 39. Madison and Douglas also received honorable mention for their labels in 1998 and 1998. So do you share the prizes, or what? (Kidding, Adam. Keep ’em coming!)
Prize: $75 gift certificate from BrewSource.com; a year’s supply of yeast (12 vials) and a T-shirt from White Labs.
