Here’s a reason to raise a toast: three area beer makers rank high on Thirsty Bastards’ list of the Top 10 Beer Labels of 2020.

More than 1,800 people voted online, choosing from a curated list of 169 boozy masterpieces from across the country.

North Country Brewing Company’s label for Melinda and the Night Sky Helles Bock Style Lager placed third in the Chicago-based beer culture blog’s roundup. To create the bottle branding, North Country teamed up with local artist Nina Zivkovic and the blues-infused rock band Melinda and the Night Sky.
