Though not a poster…here’s our label design for West Sixth Brewery’s first bottle release! Very proud!
We’re excited to announce a new project here at West Sixth - the West Sixth County Series! For the first time ever, we’re going to release a series of small-release bottle-conditioned beers celebrating the unique qualities and character of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. We plan to release around 3 different beers each year, in extremely limited quantities. The first beer of our series is American Wild Sour Ale we’re calling Washington County. Being the first in our series we’ve named this wild ale after Washington County, the first county created in Kentucky after our fair Commonwealth was founded. 
They sold-out in an hour! And notice the shape made from the negative space of this die-cut label ;)

We’ve been away for a little while. Took a beach break with family and then friends…full of sand, sun, laughter, and lots & lots of beer.

As nice as the chill time was…we are so happy to be back in action!

And this week we’ll start posting some of the projects we finished up before the summer break.

Yay! We’re back!

This week we thought we’d highlight some of the amazing events that happen here in our lovely hometown of Lexington!

We played a small role in the creation of the new West Sixth Brewery / Broke Spoke Beer Bike! It debuted last weekend at the Think Local, Drink Local event.

Along with a dollar from every pour from the bike benefiting the Broke Spoke Community bike shop…there were also these amazing, stainless-steel pint glasses available. Of course we grabbed a couple! 

We love all our Bread Box neighbors!

It’s Craft Beer Week! 
And here is our can design for the latest Country Boy and West Sixth Brewing Collaboration: Country Western - Volume 2.
This year, Country Western Volume 2 is a bit different — it’s a celebration of Kentucky!  The style is a brown ale made with Kentucky sorghum and then aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels to kick it up a notch!
Cans will be released at both breweries on May 15th at 5pm.

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!
