Foundation Label Designs

Located in Portland, Maine — Foundation Brewery is “proof that small batch doesn’t mean small impact, delivering a variety of beers from IPAs to porters, all centered around the idea of producing flavorful, yet balanced and approachable profiles. Foundation has built a reputation for excellence, with beers so in demand they often sell out within hours of being stocked on store shelves.” — David Puelle

The founders of Foundation are true science and beer geeks and the labels often include scientific and mathematical references.

Panoptic is a golden farmhouse ale aged in wine barrels with a mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria. Notes of lemon, berries, and funk from the culture meld with hints of vanilla from the barrels. Finishing tart and dry with a touch of hoppiness, we invite you to come see all that Panoptic has to offer.

Using a bright galaxy image as a base, the panoptic label sparkles with just enough of the silver paper base showing through to let the stars on the label really shine.

Pomology is a series of beers that explores the interplay of fruit and beer.  Different fruits are added to a base of golden, sour ale and then allowed to re-ferment in a secondary fermentation and in the bottles. Bright aromas and flavors from the fruit blend with the tartness and graininess of the beer, producing a delicious and harmonious reward.

Labels incorporate vintage scientific illustration drawings of each flavor on the bottle. Printed to allow just a hint of the metallic paper to show through, the label has a shimmering feel.

Tangent is a kettle-soured farmhouse ale aged in wine barrels with a mixed culture.  Fruity and earthy flavors from the wild yeasts and oak layer over a bright, lactic acidity.  Join us as we strike off down a new path.

Label incorporate tangent lines which are defined as “a straight line or plane that touches a curve or curved surface at a point, but if extended does not cross it at that point.” Silver tangent lines are the metallic/silvery paper used as a base.

Briar is a sour ale fermented with blackberries and raspberries, and aged in oak barrels with Brettanomyces. Pouring an intensely bright red, Briar has an aroma and taste that is reminiscent of raspberry jam with a deliciously tart finish.
