Face Behind the Bottle: Designer Josh Emrich

Great beer starts with great design. First the brewer creates a recipe. Then the beer needs a name and artwork for the bottle or can. When it comes to the label art we’ve been fortunate to work with independent designer Josh Emrich. 

We thought it was time for you to meet Josh and learn about his creative process, how he developed the Speakeasy style, his favorite label, and the future of package design in the beer industry. Watch our video interview.  

Below are early sketches for Metropolis Lager, Vendetta IPA, and Black Hand Chocolate Milk Stout. Josh develops these images in Photoshop with a digital pen and tablet.
