The challenge was to create a package that looked farm fresh for Captain Lawrence Brewing’s new line of fruit Sour Ales. We captured a rustic, hipster feel to appeal to Millennials. Each fruit is locally grown and sourced, so I created custom, vibrant watercolor illustrations for each fruit.

What’s Unique?
We decided to go with green, 750ml split bottles with cork and cage. We went with a luxurious, textured paper from Neenah, in order to capture a high-end, handcrafted look.
