Woodstock Brewery is a craft brewery based in Cape Town. They approached me to help work on a label for their speciality craft beer called Sugarman. Woodstock makes hand crafted beers so I wanted to do the same with the label and create a all hand drawn handmade design. I wanted the label to reflect the style of beer and flavour so I was inspired by the era of bootleggers and the prohibition. The styles of whiskey labels and vintage maps and lettering with all hand illustrated type and artwork. Sugarman is a Belgian Quad, aged in red wine barrels. It's a strong, 10% ABV, dark beer that is quite sweet and fruity, with some added wine and oak flavour from the barrel ageing process.
