Howe Sound Brewing
Welcome to Sea to Sky Country
About the Project
Howe Sound Brewing opened it’s doors in 1996 in Squamish, BC. Since then, HSB has set it’s place as one of BC’s favourite craft breweries, winning awards at the Canadian Brewing Awards, North American Brewer’s Awards & BC Beer Awards.
We have worked with the Howe Sound Brewery since 2018 and created over 30 different label designs. Here are some of their recent releases.
Double Barrel Series
The direction for these labels was to have clean, simple and classy imagery. We used abstract watercolours and metallic bopp printing to add a shimmering line drawing of a mountain in gold and silver.
MONOLITH is a constantly evolving series of flavours, folding in on itself and revealing delicate new complexities with each sip. Toffee, treacle, and candied apples all emerge, with raisins, plums, and myriad other flavours dancing on the edge of perception. It displays a moderate bitterness, subtle heat, and rich, alluring aroma. 12.4% abv
STORM WATCHING has a sweet aroma, with vanilla bean and dark chocolate emerging the strongest, but supported by additional complexities of honey, oak, espresso, hazelnut, almond milk, nutmeg, and blueberry. 10.4% abv
The Cat’s Pyjamas is a series of hard seltzers featuring dancing cat illustrations. The summer flavours are lemon, ginger and açai, pomegranate. For the winter release, a unique “black seltzer” was made with brown sugar, blackstrap molasses, and a debittered black malt extract, lending it a dark colour.
