Every Friday afternoon we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. And since we’re still deeply in love with Wes Anderson’s signature style, thanks to residual energy from Annie Atkins’ Here London talk about shaping the world of The Grand Budapest Hotel. For anyone else who can’t stop drooling over her picture-perfect designs, we’ve found the bottles that will feed your need for saturated colors, quirky yet elegant details, and retro appeal.
Zorra, by Análogo
Who says the outdoors are all about the grit and grime? This Mexican beer might be the chicest camping gear we’re packing this summer, with its subtly rustic yet contemporary color scheme. The clean and balanced design and slender bottle sets off the bubbly logo, keeping it safe from any Fantastic Mr. Fox references.

Midnight Moscow IPA, by Artem Strizhkov
Described as the perfect beer for “long summer walks through the city of Moscow,” we can’t help but marvel at the romance that’s been distilled into this brew—even if Moscow isn’t exactly the first place we think of when it comes to romance. The navy, cream, and deep coral are all pulled directly from the evening sky—which creates a complementary palette that we think even Wes Anderson would approve of. But of course our favorite part is the quirky typography, inspired by Soviet constructivist building, which brings a deep essence of historic architecture to a modern, graphic type.

Cale Brewery, by Suizopop
Snappy lines and primary colors are the bread and butter of retro-yet-modern design, and these beers show us how to do it right. The flash of color on the otherwise pared-down, brown bottles and carrying case creates a dynamic yet classic look that says “craft beer”—minus the much-abused craft aesthetic.

Hedgehog Whisky, by Lasuite Atelier
We’re suckers for heavy, beautiful paper stock, so we obviously adore this whimsical yet serious whisky. The informative label helps bolster the whisky’s artisanal reputation, while the adorable mascot and cohesive blend of type helps add visual interest, keeping the design from looking bland and bookish.
