Ligero Brewing Company’s, “Woofus”

                    

We were going after a specific group  of people on this one. The party goers are mostly  fans of Tecate, Pacifico and …well you get the picture. So we wanted a nice smooth pale but of course couldn’t help to put some nose character into it.

Our web designer made an awesome label  and we wished our brother a very happy birthday.

Cheers!!
