We wrote about 2nd Shift in our recent story about St. Louis’ burgeoning craft beer scene, and in the process of researching that story, we fell in love with the artwork on the labels. Created by Kyle A. Scarborough, a tattoo artist with an all-custom tattooing and fine art studio. His labels are silly, cartoonish, sometimes simple, sometimes a little grotesque…and they always make 2nd Shift stick out on the beer shelf. And the names. Man, the names of some of these beers are as good as the artwork. Take a look at some of our favorites from 2nd Shift.
