Lager Bottle Labels
Lager bottle labels can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, whether you would prefer them on a waterproof material or a paper material. They also need to fit the size bottle that your beer is supplied in.
With the alcohol industry expected to grow 16% per year from 2022-2025, it is important to keep up with an already very competitive market. It is important to stand out against your competitors and a cool looking attractive label is the best way to grab the customer’s attention. It is not just the Craft Beer companies that are creating funky designs for their products, larger labels are starting to follow the same trend. Create a professional bespoke label that you can proudly display on your lager bottles.

If you would like to test any of our quality materials, you can order a sample pack to get a feel of what material or adhesive works best for you:
Name and address of the brewer or importer: The label should include the name and address of the brewery or importer responsible for bringing the beer to market.
Brand name and logo: The label should clearly display the name and logo of the brewery or beer brand.
Alcohol content: The alcohol by volume (ABV) percentage should be displayed on the label.
Ingredients: Depending on the country or region, the label may be required to list the ingredients used to make the beer.
Net content: The label should indicate the amount of beer in the package, typically in volume (e.g. liters, milliliters, ounces, etc.).
Health warnings: In some countries, a health warning or cautionary statement may be required, particularly for pregnant women or individuals who should avoid alcohol.
Production information: The label may include information about the beer’s production, such as the date it was brewed or bottled, the batch number, or other product information.
Contact information: The label should include contact information for the brewery or company that produces the beer, such as an address, phone number, or website.

Where can you put a Craft Beer Label on a bottle?
Neck label – Not everyone chooses to have a neck label, it is not important to have but can give a nice finishing touch to the top of your beer bottle. This often just consists of a small logo or slogan. Although only 6% of visual attention goes onto the neck, companies still spend a minimum of £ 3 billion per year at an average of 1p per label (That’s a lot of labels!)
Back Label – Going by the law, this is your most important label, the most boring but most important. This would include the alcohol strength and units, producer, ingredients, and expiration date. Although only 4% spend time viewing this label, you can’t sell your product without it, so make sure it is perfect!
Front Label –Going from the stats of research from Anglia Ruskin University, the other 90% of the customers viewing is on the front label. The artistic, creative, good-looking side. The side where you show off your product and make those extra sales! We can help you get your artwork ready and print the perfect label.
Wrap-Around Label – The wrap-around label is a combination of the front and back labels into a singular label around the whole bottle. These are most popular for smaller bottles and can labels, providing all the information you need in one size and job run.
Labelling Materials for Lager Bottles
Waterproof labels are good for beer labels because they offer excellent resistance to moisture and humidity. When beer bottles are stored in refrigerators or ice buckets, they can be exposed to condensation or moisture, which can cause paper labels to peel or become damaged. This can make the label difficult to read and can detract from the overall appearance of the bottle.
For extra water resistance, we recommend a gloss laminate over the top to ensure that the print is as protected as the label.
Semi-gloss labels are a popular choice for labeling lager bottles for several reasons. Firstly, their moderate shine provides a professional and high-quality look, which is important for branding and marketing purposes. semi-gloss labels are easy to print on and can accommodate a variety of colours and designs, making them a versatile choice for labeling lager bottles. However, it’s important to note that if the bottles will be exposed to significant moisture or water, waterproof labels may be a better choice to ensure that the labels remain intact and legible.
A gloss varnish and gloss laminate are excellent options for lager labels due to their ability to provide an extra layer of protection and enhance the label’s visual appeal. The gloss varnish provides a high level of glossiness, creating a luxurious and shiny finish that adds to the product’s premium look. Similarly, a gloss laminate provides a high level of glossiness, but it is thicker and more durable than a gloss varnish, making it a suitable option for products that require more protection.
