"A limited edition, individually numbered, painted beer wrap packaging gig, for a very special Elderflower and Honey Tripel."
Flying Whities had been pestering the Garage Project brain trust to do a special paper wrapped beer for months when the stars started aligning. GP had come up with a very special Tripel style brew, infused with New Zealand Elderflowers and honey - it was going to be time consuming to produce, and available in only a very limited quantity. Which was exactly what we wanted to do with the packaging.
A white ink transparent label would stand proud against the glowing amber bottle, which would then be wrapped with a fully painted, two-sided wrap – the inner detailing the mystery of the Elder Tree, and the outer a soft fairy tale scene focusing on the spirit of the Elder Tree, Hylde Moer. This would be held tightly to the bottle with a vertical golden sticker along the bottles spine."
