Rad Red Amber Christmas Ale

The label is humorous but the booze was real. I was commissioned to design a label for someone who’d gotten so into home brewing in San Francisco in the ’90s that they were sending all their friends and family this amber ale for Christmas. Gosh, I hope it was a good batch…

The model in the photo, who was absolutely 21 years of age at the time it was taken, is the gifter’s niece Amber, who had rad red hair. These are the clues I was given; otherwise I was let off the leash to come up with design and verbiage, and had myself a good goofy time.

If you think she’s cute, you should see her aunt…’s Breaking Bad booze brewing basement!
