The Big Five Imperial IPA 5th Anniversary Ale label design


Label design for Migration Brewing Company's The Big Five Imperial IPA 5th Anniversary Ale, one of the Migrator Series of single batch one-off beers, released at Migration's fifth anniversary party/Zwickelmania celebration on February 14, 2015. A February 5, 2015 article by Samurai Artist in 'The New School' mentioned that Migration would be celebrating its milestone anniversary as well as its growth from 250 barrels a year to over 1,400 barrels a year in just five years and its expansion into neighboring space with a new bar and kitchen and additional restaurant space in the Annex, available for hosting special parties. The slogan at the bottom of the label, "Power of beer, people, and chasing dreams", seems especially fitting for this fifth anniversary release. Migration offered brewery tours and special samples on this day, as part of Oregon's Zwickelmania craft beer celebration. Also on offer was the new The Big Five Imperial IPA in 22 ounce bottles or draft and some specialty beers as well as the usual brews available. Curiously, a poster displayed in the article cited above incorrectly advertised the date of the anniversary celebration as FEB 14TH 2014. In February of 2014, Migration Brewing celebrated their fourth anniversary. The fifth anniversary was in 2015.
