Dawson Brewing

John Smilie beer label

Beer Labels

For years I’ve wanted to illustrate and design my own beer
labels with Rotty illustrations and hand lettering. I jumped
into the idea by creating a “graphic art brewery” along with
this gallery to showcase what I came up with. I’m calling it
“Dawson Brewing” to tip my hat to the small town near
where I grew up. All the beer names are associated with the
history, location or personal memory of the area in and
around this small town in southwestern Pennsylvania.
