Oh crap. This was not a good way to wrap up the year. I recall a few false starts with this design, and then a rush to get something, anything together right before December. So there’s this. Originally I was told that the beer was going to be called “Red Rye” and I had a rather nice black, gray, and red color scheme worked out… and then the revised name came down and I had to add this damned yellow. Screw it. It’s got Santa, so it’s festive. He’s deigned to deliver just a single “ho.” I like that.
This brings us to the end of 2012, which all in all was not a bad year for beer designs. It was a bad year for pretty much everything else, but we shan’t get into that here.
