Great, mind-blowing, innovative packaging is rare, and this gem is certainly in a class all its own. Canadian firm Hired Guns Creative was tasked with creating unique brands of several beers for a local craft brewery, Longwood Brewery. While the design of each beer is pretty exceptional, one really stands out. HGC not only named Stoutnik, a Russian Imperial Stout (“It seemed a fitting choice for a beer as dark as space itself”), they chose a striking black matte exterior (including the bottle itself!). We love the prismatic foil stamp and blind emboss Morse code (which tells a story about the beer… brilliant!). If and when we find this, we surely will never recycle the bottles… this packaging is art.
