Help me pick a beer label

As many of you know I brewed my own beer. I think it is time to get my own labels.

Would do you think?

Top left is my #1. Simple and elegant, vaguely germanic.

Top right looks like a seed catalog add for posies.

Bottom left is unappetizing.

Bottom right is unremarkable.

I love homebrew, Y. I haven't brewed a batch in a year or so, my local distributor has a great line of imported and domestic beers and I can no longer compete. My beer was always better than major label beers but the stuff that they brew out in Zeitgeist's woods is freaking wonderful.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

My first year I brewed probably 7-10, 5 gal batches. I think I drank it all myself! Later I got heavy into German beers and got pretty good at alt and dobblebock, though my favorite was a scottish ale. I didn't share any of it with anybody but Mrs B.

I started with a kit and brewing whatever the kid label said. After I was satisfied with the procedures I started messing around. Also went to soda kegs rather than bottles -- what a great advance that was! I still have all the stuff and with imported beers getting outrageously expensive, I'm tempted.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

#1 as is, or possibly #4, were you to incorporate the minions in some manner.
