    Alec Doherty: Partizan Brewing

Illustration: Beautiful booze bottles from Alec Doherty and Partizan Brewing

Posted by James Cartwright,

Drinking beer is nice; fact. But most of the time the labels on your favourite booze bottle look woefully tedious and give no clue as to the character of your beverage. Not so with Partizan Brewing, a craft brewery that’s popped up in London’s Bermondsey. They’ve enlisted the help of illustrator Alec Doherty to give character to every one of their ales, from space-themed IPAs to Porters with chaotic punters running amok across their bottles. Alec’s bold, graphic style is suggestive of woodblock printing, echoing the traditional ethos of Partizan’s beers, but making use of colour palettes that pull the images right into the present.
