Cool Illinois Beer Labels Approved This Month
Behold, the April 2017 Beer Labels from Illinois we’ve discovered.
By Just Beer Community Collection on May. 01, 2017
Each week (or thereabouts) we pore over a database of beer labels approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, or TTB, to bring you new, reworked or re-branded beers from brewers across Illinois (and sometimes Northwest Indiana) before they hit store shelves. This month: The April 2017 Beer Labels for IL.
You can do this too, if you want! All of these are publicly available through the TTB’s website. But you don’t have to, because you have us and we’re the dorks that find this kinda stuff interesting.
Note: Just because a beer label has cleared the TTB does not mean it will be released soon, if at all. Many breweries send labels to the TTB to have them available should they decide to release a beer, or with plans to release a beer but may not be released for any number of reasons. Treat these labels as an idea of what your favorite Illinois breweries might be doing, but nothing is certain until the breweries release the actual beer.
This month’s available labels include new looks from: Pipeworks, Moody Tongue, Around the Bend, Prairie Krafts, Lo-Rez, Solemn Oath, Goose Island, Evil Horse, Band of Bohemia, Triptych, Rabid Brewing, Alter Brewing, Kinslayer, Forbidden Room and Kings & Convicts.
