With restrictions in place for much of the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people had a lot more time on their hands for activities like homebrewing, watching television, and designing homebrew labels. And if the medal-winning labels from this year’s Homebrew Label Contest proved anything, it may be that many of our readers did all three! The top labels include pop culture references to music (Tyler, the Creator), animated sitcoms (The Simpsons), mockumentary sitcoms (The Office), and video games (Punch Out). They also showed off some serious artistic ability and creativity, which is what this contest — now in its 26th consecutive year running — is all about. In addition to our medal-winners, check out the Reader’s Choice label and all of the Honorable Mention labels on the following pages.
As always, a huge thanks goes out to our incredible sponsors for donating prizes, and our readers who submitted hundreds of labels!
Some brewers aren’t done when their beer is in the bottle — their fun is just beginning as it’s time for designing a beer label. Drawn from hundreds of entries, we present the winners of this year’s label contest.
