Marble Brewery Seasonal special Labels Featured in International Packaging Showcase

Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal winners, Marble Brewery, are accustomed to picking up awards for their great tasting beer and, in keeping with those high standards, their series of Seasonal Special Beer labels recently caught the attention of two prestigious packaging design showcases.


Big thanks to Lürzers Archive 200 Best Packaging Worldwide Annual (who liked the label designs so much they used a two-page spread), and worldwide packaging design blog, Packaging of the World.


Designed by downtown Albuquerque branding firm, Ripe Inc., the “Marble Brewery Special Beer” labels were used as gallery space for sections of downtown Albuquerque street murals. The concept of pairing public art on these labels is one of synchronicity and natural connection. Like Marble Brewery's approach to craft brewing, the murals demonstrate the bold, creative spirit, very much alive in Albuquerque. Mural details are picked to subtly communicate the flavor profile of each beer. All mural artists gave full permission and are credited on the labels. Bold, adventurously flavored beers matched with bold, adventurously creative label designs. Cheers!
