We’re proud to show-off the new can we designed for West Sixth’s latest beer release…

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!

Country Western

Country Boy Brewing and West Sixth Brewing, two Lexington-based breweries, have brewed the first ever collaboration beer brewed by two Lexington breweries.

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!
