August 2021 New Beer Labels from Illinois Breweries

In Beer Labels by Karl

Here are the TTB-approved August 2021 Beer Labels from Illinois breweries:

Guys Drinking Beer Labels

Each month we pore over a database of labels approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, or TTB, to bring you new beers from brewers across Illinois before they hit store shelves.

You can do this too, if you want! All of these are searchable and available to the public 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. Aren’t you lucky!

Note: Just because a beer label has cleared the TTB does not mean it will be released soon, if at all. 

Some breweries have sent labels to the TTB simply to have them available if they decide to release a beer. Treat these labels as an idea of what your favorite Illinois breweries might be doing. Nothing is certain until the breweries release the actual beer.

Don’t get too excited, is all we’re saying. All of our previous label posts can be found here.

Looking for the approved August 2021 keg rings [which are also sent through the TTB]? We stopped posting those about forever ago. Why? Well, they can occasionally give insight into a new beer name but generally a bunch of round things with printing on it isn’t the best visual experience. We opted to focus on new package labels in these posts. That means cans and bombers in all different shapes and sizes. 

If anything comes through the TTB that we consider super interesting or newsworthy, we may post an exception that proves the rule. We would likely also Tweet them out separate from this post. Follow us here if you haven’t already. And follow us on Instagram as well, where other things occasionally appear.
