The Die Line - Tropicalia, Athena, Reclaimed Rye


We at Young Athenians were proud to expand our portfolio into beer can and bottle label design for such a wonderful enterprise as Creature Comforts Brewing Company. As community-oriented locavores, working with Creature Comforts was a way of supporting our neighbors just down the street. The designs of both Tropicalia and Athena are specific to the flavors of each beer, and holistic with the overall mission and aesthetic of Creature Comforts. Each design was born from a collaborative process between the brewers and our illustrators. The new Reclaimed Rye can illustrates the depth of this process and our desire to visually help express what the brewery is all about. The wood images on the can were all hand-drawn to capture the feel of the reclaimed wood inside the brewery tasting room, the ‘kitchen’ where such an original and delicious beer was first cooked up. Stay posted for the Bibo Pilsner, the final can design for CC’s four flagship beer styles, and maybe the best is yet to come…
