Threadless Needs A Label For Their IPA

Threadless IPA

In August, Brew Review covered the release of the Threadless IPA, brewed by Finch’s Beer Co.

Well now they’re looking for help with the label, because they’ve decided to take it out of the keg and distribute it across Chicago in cans. (Finch’s preferred distribution method.)

Earlier this year, Finch’s Beer Company brewed us our very own piney, hoppy, 6% ABV India Pale Ale. Many happy hours after our first taste of Threadless IPA, we decided we can no longer keep this delicious beer to ourselves. It’s time to spread the consumption and enjoyation of Threadless IPA to more craft beer lovers. Finch’s is ready to send Threadless IPA through their canning lines and distribute it across Chicagoland. But they can’t because they don’t have art for the cans!

Threadless selects winners by popular vote, so even if you can’t tell the difference between Photoshop and MS Paint, you can still get involved in the action by voting for your favorites.

The winner gets $1000 cash, a fancy display case to show off your can design, and a buncha Finch’s swag, plus mad respect from anyone that buys the beer, so head on over to Threadless for full details on how to enter the contest.
