A beautiful beer label
This is the prettiest beer label I know. It is designed by Tara McPherson.
The beer, Dogfish Head Fort, isn't too bad either I believe. In fact it is the world's strongest fruit beer at 18% alcohol by volume, and made from a "ridiculous" amount of raspberries.
I'm fortunate to have one of these bottles in stock as I found it at a Whole Foods store in New York City. The cashier was shocked by the fact that I was willing to pay $19.95 for a bottle. I told her - why not, as that's what people would gladly cash out for a not too special bottle of wine. We'll see what I think of what is inside the bottle. I'll probably open it within the next few weeks.
