Sours for Brick Brewery

I was commissioned to design some labels for two new beers from Brick Brewery‘s Heritage Sour series. The two beers are vermouth cocktail-inspired beers; Manhattan Sour and Martini Sour. The designs follow a style of Mid-Century Modern influence while also using the ingredients to dictate shape and colour for each beer, so that they have their own distinct feel but stylistically both fit in to the same family.

“Martini Sour: White grape, peach and lemon peel provide a delicate contrast to the dry base of this sour. Added chamomile, coriander seed and cardamom bring a level of complexity that defies expectation.  Classic, balanced, refined.  Olive not required.”

“Manhattan Sour: Styled on the classic cocktail, the Manhattan Sour blends sweet cherry with a dash of bitter orange.  Cinnamon and Ginger create a warmth alongside rich, sweet and fruity notes from ageing on cherry wood.  This dark sour harnesses the classic recipe made famous by New York’s speakeasies.”
