Thanks in advance

As it has been some time since #2 and now that holidays are over & work under control for the present. I thought I would provide another pair of similar labels for you to compare.

NBC comparative

 Once again the labels both appear to be from a similar time period. However one bears the words “Trade Mark”, whilst the other does not. The label without the “Trade Mark” also has the addition of “Ltd” and very correct punctuation. You would imagine that the label bearing just “Co.” to be the earlier. However the the very correct punctuation on the other label, might indicate this is earlier. What do you think?

LOTY 2013 Judging – The Final Countdown

Sorry for the lack of updates over the last week or so, it becomes rather manic at this time of year. However the label display boards are now virtually complete, labels all sorted and the deadline for entries has now officially expired. So apart from anything else, the postie is happy. It’s all over for another year and he can revert to delivering junk mail & bills. On a happier note, we are delighted that over 160 breweries have chosen to take part in LOTY 2013 and as a result support this year’s charities. MacMillan Cancer Support & Keech Hospices. As you know LOTY judging is a members only event and once again this year, will take place upstairs at the Brunswick Inn, Derby, this coming Saturday. The Brunswick is within very easy walking distance from Derby train station, which is fortunate for anyone sampling one too many of the excellent beers OTB. See you on Saturday

Yet more LOTY entries

Had a chat with long suffering postie today, as he asked what Labology was all about and why he was lugging all these deliveries for LOTY around the countryside. I explained and he was of course duly impressed (I think, if not perhaps he should take up acting as an alternative career). Anyway he has delivered entries from

Sunny Republic Brewing Co. Cross Bay Brewery, Fool Hardy Ales @ The Hope Inn, Cotleigh Brewery – Thanks to all of you for your support

LOTY 2013 & still the entries arrive

Today the good old postie, who must be decidedly fed up with LOTY, delivered the following entries.

George Bateman & Son, Woodforde Norfolk Ales,  Mile Tree Brewery Ltd

Social Media – the ‘T’ word

For all you Tweeps out there, we have finally reached the 200 follower mark. Am sure if our members were to sign up & follow we would soon pass another milestone. It really is easy (it must be, I managed it) and you might just be surprised, who & what you can find both locally & nationally. Think about it.

More LOTY 2013 Entries

Delighted to receive entries from Mash Brewery & Elland Brewery. The new Champion beer of Britain, 1872 Porter is produced by Elland and they have been kind enough to enter this label.

More entries arrive for LOTY 2013

Delighted to receive entries from Mountain Man Brewing in Co. Cork & Fell Brewery in Cumbria.

Just a week to go to this year’s deadline. more entries promised. So thanks again to everyone who has or plans to support LOTY 2013

Latest Entries for LOTY 2013

The latest entrants to beat the rapidly approaching Wednesday 4th September are Shepherd Neame, Frederic Robinson, Hopping Mad Brewers, Bowness Bay Brewing, Gun Dog Ales. Some excellent quality designs amongst these.

A number of other companies have promised entries before the cut off, so watch this space ! ! !

Although I have received very few (one) comments in response to my first Spot the Difference, as I threatened here comes #2

Sometimes you notice very slight differences, that had previously escaped your attention. The label on the left arrived recently, an eBay purchase.

 

Brutton Mitchell Toms comparative

The inclusion of the comma after Mitchell and Toms, or the lack of them, both round the top and in the black box led me to wonder, if there were similar pairs of their other labels.

It seems the version with both commas is much more usual. Could it be that the brewery used the different styles to identify the printer responsible??

The labels would appear to be of the same period.
