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’re going to have another week of posting recent logo designs.
Here’s a glimpse of West Sixth Brewing’s 4th canned beer (and Brian’s favorite…mine in still the IPA) the Cocoa Porter. They’ve started canning already and distribution is soon to follow.
And we’re proud of our continued designs for the brewery!
So…we designed this fancy 32oz cup for West Sixth Brewing!
It debuted during last weekend’s Woodland Art Fair, but will also be available during the Chevy Chase Street Fair tomorrow!
Get’em while you can.
Here at Cricket Press, we often worry about your beer. Is it staying cold enough? Is your hand comfortable? Are you going to drink that last sip?
We have a solution for the first two, and you can come get one of these this weekend at the Woodland Art Fair!
Here is the logo we designed for Apollo Pizza's newly brewed…
We’re celebrating two years back in business with the launch of our exclusive house beer Athena Ale.
Athena Ale is brewed just for Apollo Pizza by The Brew Kettle. The only place you can get this smooth amber is right here in Richmond starting August 14th.
As everyone knows we at Cricket Press love us some craft beer…and we can’t wait to try this!
We’re proud to show-off the new can we designed for West Sixth’s latest beer release…
Another BIG announcement: the newest addition to the canned beer lineup will be the Pay it Forward Cocoa Porter! A taproom favorite, it’s moving up to the big leagues! It is available now in the taproom and will be in cans and on draft around Kentucky in September.
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!
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!
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.

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
