Constantia Flexibles – Beer labels for Goose Island’s Cooper Series
USA • Building on the success of their Bourbon County Stout, Goose Island is releasing a 3-part series of beers throughout 2017 that have been partially aged in bourbon barrels, albeit with less bourbon flavour. Constantia Flexibles, creator of the Bourbon County Stout label, was chosen to create a similar label for the Cooper series. Beer that includes the neck label from Goose Island Beer Company signifies that the beer comes from the Goose Island Barrel Warehouse.
This label features an eye-catching flag but with a more aggressively tapered neck. The Cooper series is a three label application (neck, front and back) whereas the Bourbon County Stout required only a neck and back application. The neck label substrate is a proprietary combination of clear film and metallized paper that is constructed on the press during the printing process as is the patent pending flag element. According to the company the result is a premium label that highlights the details of the brew.
