Portuguese communications designer João Andrade likes German san serif typeface first published in 1896—Akzidenz-Grotesk—so much so that he decided to create a beer in honor of it.
To celebrate the popular and very versatile font—which the designer hails as “one of the greatest and most influential typographies in history”—Andrade has created a total of five beer bottle designs, with each corresponding to a specific version of the typeface.
Matching the different weights and widths of the typeface to the amount of alcohol in each beer, the Akzidenz-Grotesk beer comes in light, medium, bold, extra and super.
We are hoping that the designer would work with a brewery and turn this attractive branding project into an actual beer.
