    North Peak

    From Lovely Package:

    “Northern United Brewing Company, owners of the two most successful brew pubs in Michigan, North Peak and Grizzly Peak, is making its beer available in stores for the first time. North Peak in six packs of 12 oz stubby bottles. Grizzly Peak in 22 oz high gravity singles — macro micros. The brewpubs themselves have kind of an old timey log cabin vibe. So we tried to make something that wouldn’t look out of place among the classics – the beers from back in the day. Simple. Clean. Midwestern.”- designer, Luke Oeth.

    I love the Red Stripe style bottle of the top three, it feels very medicinal.

    …The ads are nice too. Created by graphic designer, Luke Oeth, and copywriter, Josh Leutz. The duo collaborates under the name Neatly Trimmed Beard.

    The New American Summer | Esquire

    I was working at Esquire at the time this video was made. It’s a summer style video that was actually shot in February. Hey, we did our best.

    Yes, you can still sort of tell that its cold outside but the video should get you geeked up for the summer. Barbecues, beaches and bikinis baby!

    Check out more Esquire videos here.


    New Crew (Cont.)

    …if you’re like me and you’d rather be stuck in traffic than start thinking about cold weather clothing, here are some spring/summer looks.

    J. Crew recently released their fall 2010 collection and things just keeps getting better and better over there. It’s time to drop the Ed Hardy and True Religion and hit up your local J.Crew shop for a little style 101. This is how a real man should dress.
