I don’t know much about Newburgh Brewing Company. I know they’ve been brewing for several years in New York’s Hudson Valley and I know that it’s hard to get their beers outside of New York and New Jersey. Supposedly, their MegaBoss IPA is fantastic and I’ve heard they can do wonderful things with cream ales and brown ales, two styles that get relegated to “I guess I’ll have that” if there’s absolutely nothing else on the tap list at the moment for most of us. But that’s about the extent of my knowledge, but based on the style of their label art alone, I’d like to get to know this brewery better. Because I like robots and cartoon cows. Also, Kennedy. And you can find all of these things on Newburgh’s labels. Take a look at the gallery and see for yourself what this small, Upstate New York brewery has to offer the wild, wonderful world of beer label art.

Newburgh has brewed 50 different styles of beer, but they only can or bottle a select few.

Sometimes their flagship Cream Ale comes with a special message.

MegaBoss is the IPA that everyone raves about. Also, cool robot.

GigaBoss is the double IPA version of MegaBoss that, apparently, will force your cool robot to explode.

Is that JFK on the label of Checkpoint Charlie? Yes it is.

It's hard for me to get excited about a brown ale, but the toy soldiers help.

I respect breweries who use the space on the bottom of the can to pass along secret messages.

While their flagship beer labels are playful, it's strictly business for their limited release, big bottle beers.
