Bellwoods is an acclaimed Craft Brewery in Toronto, Canada that is mostly known for their IPAs and Sour Beers. Our Client came to us with the ask to design a label for their 1st Non-Alcoholic IPA brand called Stay Classy. Since Bellwoods successfully created an NA IPA that pours and tastes like a beer, it was important the packaging reflected that. To achieve this, we leaned into the simplicity and playful type of 70s and 80s Stubby Bottles. This use of nostalgia makes Stay Classy feel like a comfortable regular, getting noticed for anything but its lack of alcohol.
