Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. This week we’re bummed to bid al fresco weather adieu, but that just means it’s nearly time to revisit our favorite fireside sippers. Here are the rustic, moody packaging designs that hit perfect autumnal notes and are making us feel all cozy chic inside.
Fjellheim Brewery, by Erik Berger Vaage
Who says gray skies mean gloomy spirits (or sad design)? The Nordic landscape depicted in this beer’s label, shrouded by wisps of rolling fog, elevates the potentially melancholy imagery to something far more romantic and mysterious. The warm coppery shine and the minimalist aesthetic create an elegant beer that’s the ultimate companion to a bout of pensive reflections.

The Aperitivo House, by GINGIN
If you’re looking for a low-key happy hour, look no further. These bitters may not scream “fall,” but the label conveys the tranquil and more reflective side of the season. Equal parts classic apothecary and contemporary minimalist, these tiny bottles will see you through the winter, too.

Cascabel IPA, by Toro Pinto
Although the bold brush strokes on this beer label evoke the hearty flavors of the IPA—specifically the range of Mexican chiles that comprise the flavor index—the dramatic rendering reminds us of autumn leaves as they turn from verdant greens to warm oranges, yellows, and reds. Even the hypnotic swirl adds to the cyclical turn of the seasons.

Vi Novell, by Atipus
Pine cones, falling leaves, and a color palette of red and brown are so quintessentially autumn that it needs no explanation, but we can’t help but mention how much be love a clean-cut, contemporary pattern. Of course our favorite thing about this fruity wine is the old tradition that characterizes Vi Novell, where bars will hang a pine branch outside to indicate they serve the spirit. Don’t mind us crunching through the fallen leaves in search of wayward pine branches.
