We are passionate about beer, and everything related to it, from the process that brings this beauty to life to the joy it spreads to all those around it. We are proud to offer products that help brewers label their beer every step of the way, from the brewing stage to the final results.
National Homebrew Day takes place on May 7th. It’s our favorite day of the year – trust us, we are not big fans of Mondays but can’t wait for the next one to arrive! It’s the one day when we won’t need any excuses for having a swig of a new homebrew batch.
GrogTag is in the business of making your beer look good. Brulosophy.com is all about making your beer taste good – which is something new to us. We have been following the crew at Brulosophy for awhile, and have enjoyed seeing them tackle every aspect of the homebrewing process with one goal in mind: to see if all the work we do to make good beer actually matters in the end.
You’ve seen the labels, but do you know their stories? This year, we are hosting our very own Oscars inspired award for ‘Best Picture’. From disco lawn care to gangs in New York City, these characters have become the stars of their own labels.
We truly loved every moment of 2017! The year was full of fun and awesome beer labels. We have been blown away by the designs that have passed through our office and love seeing the great products that you are producing for your homebrew, making it look as good as it tastes!
Keeping our long-practiced tradition alive, our team went through the multiple creations submitted on our website and picked their favorite beer labels. Here they are…
Create stunning homemade gifts using our professional design templates.
You’ve brewed your seasonal beer and are ready to gift it for the holidays. Now what? Creating your perfect custom beer bottle label for the holidays should be easier than assembling a gingerbread house. Use our online design templates and we’ll help you create stunning homemade gifts with a professional touch. Start with labels and finish it with a custom bottle cap for a package that will look as good as it tastes!
Thanksgiving is a time of family, food, and gratitude. We are always grateful when our beer looks as good as it tastes. Whether you are decorating beer bottles with custom beer labels to share with friends and family, making a custom tap handle for your seasonal brew, or creating some fun personalized coasters for the table we’ve got you covered!
Creating a custom wooden tap handle is the best way to up your game! The last thing we want is for you to be disappointed in your branded beer tap handles. Here is a quick guide for what you can expect from our custom tap handles.
If you use GrogTag labels you can remove your labels in a snap with our repositionable labels. Thrifty homebrewers collect bottles lots of ways, they save them, reuse them and they get them from friends. Or perhaps you attempting to relabel a bottle of wine for an event, either way you will need to remove those beer labels before putting your own on.
Ready to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day? Got a big party you are heading too? Don’t let your beer get pinched! Dress your bottle in a custom green beer label and get lucky. Below is a list of our favorite leprechaun approved designs.
Our Valentine to you. A free graphic that you can download and upload into our sign template or square label. Because you should always love the beer you’re with. (And the best way to love it is to wrap it in a professional looking label or drink it in front of a good looking sign.)
To download the image, simply drag the image onto your desktop.
Valentine’s Day is approaching and nothing says love like a bottle of beer, wine, cider or mead. But that doesn’t mean that root beer, spirits, kombucha, or other beverages can’t benefit from a custom label, because everything looks better dressed to the nines. So dress your next bottle up before gifting it to your loved one. Because it can be hard to enjoy a home brew if you don’t know what is the mysterious bottle with scribbles on the cap.
Our Label of the Day is turning into the Hall of Fame, because we have more than just labels to celebrate! We’ve got bottle caps, coasters, signs, hangtags and t-shirts…and of course our awesome removable custom labels.
Every week we will post a new Hall of Fame entry on GrogTag’s Instagram. It is our way of celebrating the funny, the clever and the lovely from our amazing customers. We find our customer’s design so inspiring, we want to share.
The best host or hostess gift is the one that is homemade.
It is the season for parties! Be it Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, holiday office parties, or just gathering for football games, don’t go empty handed. Create fun, distinct gifts that can easily be modified for your host or hostess.
Kombucha or fermented tea is revered for its health benefits, mostly involving digestion. It is lightly carbonated, very slightly alcoholic (less than .5%) and runs the gamut in taste from sweeter to tangy but always with a slight vinegar bite. If you get excited by all the flavors of home made ciders, you should check out kombucha. Fruits, roots, and flowers all play off green or black teas to make some really tasty beverages.
No home bar is complete unless it has several tin tackers. Our CEO’s home bar (aka kitchen) is filled with tackers from his honeymoon, vacations, silly faux beers with slightly inappropriate names and, of course, those branding his own brew. So, why not immortalize your homebrew or brewery with a custom designed tin tacker? Slip it on the wall and make it official.
Using our keg/carboy label is a great way to track your brew in style. If the dry erase crayon/wet erase pen isn’t cutting it for you in your fermenting process, we recommend using a Sharpie. It will stand up to wet, you won’t worry about accidentally wiping it off.
When you are ready to remove it, simply use some rubbing alcohol and a rag. With a bit of wiping you’ll be all clear and ready for the next batch.
Not all beer is meant to be aged. However, most people do. So what better reason to drink up that hoppy IPA than in celebration of someone who is aged to perfection? To get your mental juices flowing we’ve set up a few demo labels. Remember, these are just ideas to show you how easy it is to customize your own birthday beer labels!
Not everyone drinks champagne. And your wedding should reflect your personality in all the small details. So why not ask your pals to stand by you on your big day in a way that stays true to your sophisticated self? Use some puns, free straws from the burger joint and a custom hang tag. Make a be my bridesmaid kit that will bring back the memories and remind them why they won’t want to miss out.
If you want the look of a darker label, but still want to have a write in style we recommend two different marking devices. We tested for readability, wet resistance and friction (we rubbed a dry finger across the letters to see if it would smear). Both will rub off if you held a bottle for an extended period of time with sweaty palms. For that use, you’ll want permanent, so use a Sharpie. But if you are marking bottles/growlers to take over to a friends and pour into a glass, this is what we found…
The event was for a double 40th birthday party for a set of cousins, Julia and Todd.
The party had a laid back, out-in-the-country vibe so they ordered two different sets of 12 basic sized labels….one design for each birthday person. Since both love biking (one into bicycling and one into motorcycles) they incorporated their personalities into the designs with a simple illustration at the top.
Create something that truly captures your passion, and will be useful later. Try a set of custom tap handles for a fun, unique cake topper. Use one of our templates or upload your own graphic. Then, later, whenever you put something good on tap whether it is beer, wine, cider or kombucha, your life-mate knows it belongs to you. Having your own tap handles are a bit like each of you having different color toothbrushes. . . it improves the quality of marriage but if you choose to share we won’t judge.
Have some extra bottles hanging about? Pull together a mixed set of bottles with some custom labels for a quick and easy table decoration. Personalize the label for your event and you’ve got an easy, lovely bouquet that reflects both your love of beer and unique, effortless beauty.
Tap handles are here! Our customized tap handles are a great way to personalize any home bar. Looking to upload your own art? Here is a quick guide to help make sure your new tap handle looks as awesome as your homebrew tastes!
Instagram has changed the way we share and view photos. In addition to its ease-of-use, the app has some really cool image filters that you can use to put a cool new spin on a very standard photo.
The other cool thing about Instagram, is that the photos you upload and convert with those filters are high quality enough to upload into the GrogTag label creation system. By using Instagram and GrogTag together, you can craft some unique labels!
