The latest edition in a series of posts about packaging: While I’m probably one day late (happy belated St. Paddy’s day!!!) I bring you a great roundup of 20 great examples of beer packaging! (Don’t forget to check out Part 1 – Coffee, Part 2 – Energy Drinks, or Part 3 – Breakfast Cereal!)

Hitachino Nest Beer

Love the owls on these beer labels!

Trouble Brewing

Love the illustrations on these labels. Look out here comes trouble! Designed by Stranger & Stranger.

1836 Classic

I love the swashy type on this beer can!


Quite possibly one of my favorite beers! An interesting Destijl style redesign of the classic packaging. Designed by Christopher Ritter.

Heineken Beer Package

Love this packaging concept for a beer carrier for Heineken. Designed by Luis Luna.

Astor Beer

This is a student project by

Nelson Beer

Love the illustrative approach to this package design.

Carlsberg 900

Ultra premium beer that comes in handy….1 packs? I like the black label and how it contrasts with the color of the beer.

Brew Dog Beer

I like the grungy approach that the brew dog labels have.


A classic…what else can I say?

Cider Beer

I love the simple playful typography of this cider can!

Tokaido Beer

I’m definitely fascinated by public transit system maps, and love that this packaging has a subway map integrated into the design! Designed by Lisa Llanes.

Bard’s Beer

love this re-branding by Minneapolis based design form Hunt Adkins

Great Divide Beer

Love the emphasis on type and the little quirky silhouettes on the labels. If I saw Yeti beer at the store I would totally buy it!!!! Designed by Cultivator Advertising & Design.

Liten Ljus Lager

Simplistic Swedish beer packaging. Makes me want to go get drunk in an IKEA store! :)

Pipeline Organic Stout

I like the ripped paper feel on the labels

Bar Beer

Interesting name for Taiwanese beer


This is the crappy Italian beer I drank while studying in Italy. Its hilarious to me because the name essentially means blue ribbon. Which makes me think of PBR. :)

Nova Schin

There’s even beer (non alcoholic) for pregnant women…

What is your favorite beer packaging?
