Exclusive: First look at Sarasota's Big Top Brewing Co. can labels

/

Big Top Brewing Co., the Sarasota production brewery that hopes to open at the end of the month at 6111 Porter Way, has finalized the labels for its first three beers. Here's a first look at the can labels, designed by Jessee Hatch, a graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design. The brewery wants to showcase Sarasota's historic links to the circus, a goal that comes through clearly in these labels.

The labels are in the process of being approved by the federal government, according to Big Top CEO Mike Bisaha.
