One of Basement Brewing’s flagship brews is the India Ink Imperial Stout. A beautifully rich brew that is released each December. I have had fun doing artwork, packaging and extra images for the Ink. I entered the 2010 India Ink into a couple of contests; the beer itself took first place in the Coho Spring Fling brew contest and the label design took gold in the BYO Magazine homebrew label contest. All of a sudden, the Ink took the world by storm and it went to my head, thus the photo of me with a couple of award winning bottles and medal. Good fun.
