I'm usually conservative about beer packaging -- love the vintage look of the old-time breweries' packaging, which never fails to make me think things were better way back when. But MacTarnahan's Brewing Company has done a pretty good job updating its labeling, just in time for the brewery's 21st birthday. The old stuff was cool, but the new stuff ain't bad, either. And that's coming from a guy who once dressed up as a bottle of Mac's Amber Ale for a Halloween gig in Portland.
Maybe the brewery will bring back Uncle Otto's Rocktoberfest, one of the coolest music-and-beer fests TDA has ever played. Happy birthday, Mac's!
