West Sixth Brewing Company made the announcement…so can we!
"We’ve got some big news today that we can’t wait to share with you: we’re embarking on a major brewery expansion, and launching a new beer…the Lemongrass American Wheat in a can!”
We’re proud to show-off the new can we designed for West Sixth. Here’s a flattened version of the can design we created for them.
The West Sixth Brewing Company has released their first seasonal…a Christmas Ale on sale now in a limited edition. We’ve tried it…and though we’re not huge christmas beer fans this is pretty great. The ale is rich and spicy with a touch of sweet and provides a good punch with it’s 9% ABV ;)
We designed the can (along with the matching glasses and koozies)! So, get them while you can!
We created an art-print (of sorts) for KFTC’s
Kentucky Kicks Ass Brewfest! They are now available on our site.

The poster we designed for the 2013 Fest of Ales…the design to match the aesthetic of the poster we designed for the this year’s Vintage KY Wine & Beer Fest.
The beer, which will be called “Country Western” in a celebration of the collaboration, will be a hoppy pale ale, and will be released during Lexington’s first ever Craft Beer Week on May 13th-19th.
And it was a privilege to design their label!
Here at Cricket Press we love two things…posters and beer. That’s it. 2 things. Here’s the poster we designed for Lexington’s Craft Beer Week…enough said.
We’ve been working hard on a bunch of various event posters. This week we’ll be posting a new one each day. We feel very lucky that our hometown of Lexington is so good to us and we’re excited that every one of these posters is for a local KY event.
Today’s poster is for the upcoming Vintage Kentucky Wine & Beer Festival…this being the first year they’ve included beer…which makes it all the better!

Sterling Beer is coming back. Watch for Sterling Premium Pilsner Beer’s return to Louisville, Southern Indiana, Lexington and beyond.
We were hired by Sterling to design and print this screenprinted poster based on one of their vintage ads. We’re excited to see this local brewer revitalize and where they go from here!

Here is another detail of the can art spread out.
After the success of their IPA…West Sixth is starting to can their Amber. And here is the final, approved design before it goes to print. We’re so excited to continue our relationship with West Sixth as they grow and make amazing beer. It really is a dream job for us as designers…and beer lovers.
Come celebrate our community’s Independents — unchained businesses, nonprofits, artists, musicians, farmers, community members, etc. — that keep Lexington unique and vibrant on July 3rd at West Sixth Brewing Co.
Not only did Brian design the logo for the event but he will be one of the many Guest Bartenders!
Summer + Beer + Locals = Celebration!
Our NEW Bike Month 50¢ Art Print for tonight’s
Bike Nite at the Bread Box
Bikes, Beer, Art…enough said
Saturday, May 19th, 5-8pm
We were pretty excited to discover this bit of cool press… Paste Magazine selected their favorite beer labels in honor of American Craft Beer Week, and the can design we did for West Sixth Brewing made the cut! And we’re in very good company.
They must have liked the photo we took of the cans too…because that’s what they used- Our first 6-pack sitting on our backyard patio table. Then we drank them.
Join Cricket Press, Broke Spoke Community Bike Shop and West Sixth Brewing as we celebrate a trifecta of local awesomeness this Saturday night in conjunction with National Bike Month and American Craft Beer Week (two great things that go great together)!
We’ll be opening the Cricket Press studio/gallery space to the public from 5pm - 8pm where we’ll have an exhibit of posters we’ve created for Lexington bike events throughout the years. This exhibit chronicles our involvement with Lexington’s bike scene going back to 2005, and you’ll see many posters that we’ve created for alleycat races, Bike Lexington, Bike Prom, Tweed Ride and much more. We’ll have bike-themed posters and prints for sale, as well as several bike themed t-shirts and of course our 50¢ Art Print Machine will be dispensing a new bike print!
There’s so much more stuff going on at The Bread Box as well that night:
In keeping with the bike theme, Broke Spoke Community Bike Shop will be celebrating their Grand Re-Opening in their new space, just around the corner from West Sixth Brewing (in the Bread Box building). There will be tours of the new space, and you can find out more about the shop and how you can support them, or get involved with their work.
If that’s not enough, West Sixth Brewing will be celebrating American Craft Beer Week with their “Think Local Drink Local” event. They will be featuring their own brews as well as those of other Kentucky breweries.
