If you have ever homebrewed your own beer, or know someone that has, you understand the very specific nightmare that is marking them. Writing on the bare bottles isn’t effective. Paper gets destroyed. Labels don’t stick right. You could try heavy-duty tape like we did, but even that gets gnarly after a while. When it does, you also have all the tape residue on your bottles.
Enter GarageMonk. Using premium, waterproof, pressure sensitive vinyl sticker material, designer/maker Drew Dougherty makes labels for bottle body and neck in a number of colors, shapes and sizes. They’re sweat proof, ice proof, hand washable and considering the alternatives, pretty darn inexpensive. All you have to do, outside of actually brewing and bottling, is just write on them with a Sharpie or dry erase marker.
