BrewDog loves Art

The BrewDog boys have been busy again, this time making a super special limited edition beer with their American friends at Stone Brewing.

Read all about their brewing escapades here.

The label for the first batch was created across the Atlantic and features a rather mean looking Stone Demon scaling the iconic BrewDog shield. Scary huh? 


James and Martin also created some very special limited editions of the beer aged in whisky casks along with blackberries, Tay berries and delicious black raspberries. Click here to see more.

This enchantingly dark and fruity beer now needed a label...

The paper artwork begins to take shape; a moonlit demon prowls over a tomb-like mound of misshapen skulls, entwined by thorny branches of berries and blossoms. Obviously every discerning illustrator knows black nail polish enhances the macabre nature of any dark piece.

Gothic flourishes and curios such as candlelit lanterns, an owl and a distant city skyline create a narrative within the artwork, reflecting the many layers of story and detail which combine to create this dark tipple.

The result? An inky nocturnal delirium, as deliciously dark and intricate as the beer it will contain.

Oh F... Man. I thought the Atlantic IPA label was stunning, but this one blows it away. This is just mindblowing

Absolutely LOVE the finished image at the bottom of the post. Would love to get my hands on a print of that. Is there any way that would be possible?

Looks great, love the layers of depth in it. Im sure it reflects the layers of depth in the beer too! :)

Are there posters of any of the BrewDog art available
