IL March 2013 Beer Labels (30)

In Beer Labels by Ryan

Your new Illinois March 2013 Beer labels hail from 5 Rabbit, Argus, Atlas Brewing, Big Muddy, Big Shoulders, Church Street, Haymarket, Excel, Lake Effect, Metropolitan, Nomad Brewery, Revolution, Ridgebrook Brewery and Ten Ninety.

(Editors note: There seems to be very little a little bit more information on Nomad Brewery. The name is trademarked by Lush Wine & Spirits (h/t to a commenter on the Beer Mapping forum for catching that). It’s barrel aged beer (below) is produced and bottled at Lincoln Park Brewery Inc, located at 1800 N Clybourn Ave, which is the Goose Island Clybourn brewpub. For those of you who fear that AB InBev is parading out “craft beer” under an assumed name, we would like to point out that the Clybourn brewpub is NOT owned by AB InBev but operates separate from Goose Island Beer Co.)

Each week (or thereabouts) we pore over a database of beer labels approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, or TTB, to bring you new, reworked or re-branded beers from brewers across Illinois (and sometimes Northwest Indiana) before they hit store shelves.

You can do this too, if you want! All of these are publicly available through the TTB’s website. But you don’t have to, because you have us and we’re the dorks that find this kinda stuff interesting.

Note: Just because a beer label has cleared the TTB does not mean it will be released soon, if at all. Many breweries send labels to the TTB to have them available should they decide to release a beer, or with plans to release a beer but may not be released for any number of reasons. Treat these labels as an idea of what your favorite Illinois breweries might be doing, but nothing is certain until the breweries release the actual beer.
