When I first saw our stainless Torrid water heater in the laz, in China, I thought "wow, that looks like a big keg!" Which hatched an idea of doing a beer label on it.
I had lots of time to think about it. I looked at some beer labels on line. But what drew me in were old travel posters, think Lake Tahoe. I came up with the wording (blue is our them color for the boat), and specifically that the bottom of the MAHALO letters had to have this curvature.
I went back to pictures I took at the Old Lahaina Luau in 2003, and selected this one of a dancer. Then Chris of Reid Signs (www.reidsigns.com) worked his magic and aloha to our new beer label!
Unfortunately the huge media filter on top of the heater kinda took away from the effect. I had some thoughts of having a tap, like in a pub, made to go on top.
But anyway, if I ever decide to start brewing beer again I have the label!
