Kent’s Desert Island Beer Labels #9

We travel back to the West Country for my ninth label, Oak Ale from the Oakhill Brewery. I don’t really know why I like this label. In all probability the beer was named to reflect the company name and their trademark – a hill covered with oaks – although other companies also produced “Oak” ales – presumably a darkish beer. I think what attracts me is the pleasing traditional design conveying the impression of a rural country brewery. I also like the fact that the county is named properly as Somersetshire, not shortened as happens so often.

  • I know why I like this label. Design, colour combination, use of image and text. And I hadn’t seen it before. Beautiful.
