Week 30, April 3, 2023. A sweet pun that may have nothing to do with the song but made us want to stand up and shout anyway. Hooray for fun puns!

Week 29, March 27, 2023. Cue the song and let the fun begin. Cheers to Lone Pine Brewing Company for this charming pun. We’ll be singing the song all week.

We wouldn’t have to walk to the store
If I had a million dollars
Now, we’d take a limousine ’cause it costs more
If I had a million dollars
We wouldn’t have to eat Kraft Dinner
But we would eat Kraft Dinner
Of course we would, we’d just eat more
And buy really expensive ketchups with it
That’s right, all the fanciest-, Dijon ketchup, mm, mm

Week 27, March 13, 2023. Props to Proper Brewing for this nod to SLC Punk, the classic counter-culture film from 1998. And thank you to Jack and Jeannette for suggesting this one. We have some super chill people at Amherst Label—and they patiently explain things to the rest of us.

Week 26, March 6, 2023. Whether your humor tends toward the off-color, or you like to speak with contrived accents, we hope this will make you smile… here’s the label most suggested for Monday Pun Day. With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, we know some Irish eyes will already be smiling.

Week 25, February 27, 2023. A riddle wrapped in a mystery inspired by hard candies, Transcend asks us to “Skiddle me this….” A pun Batman, the Riddler and Skittles fans would enjoy. “Taste the rainbow,” skittle-lovers!

Week 24, February 20, 2023. It’s hard to find a shadow on top of Hogback Mountain, which offers the most beautiful panoramic view of VT, NH and MA. So when they name a beer, “Beyond a shadow of a doubt—er stout—” they know what they’re talking about. This would have been a great label to share for Groundhog’s Day….

Week 23, February 13, 2023. After a weekend of “winter warmer” weather when many of us got out on the snow in a good way, this wonderful pun from Amherst Brewing is spot-on. Here’s hoping we all get another chance soon to be “up to snow good.”

Week 21, January 30, 2023. Adrienne in Accounting and Shane in Sales brought our attention to this great pun—a spin off from MC Hammer’s “Stop Hammer Time” from U Can’t Touch This. Watching the video takes us back to 1990… in a good way. Cheers to Hammer Time, Hammock Time, @AmbitionAles and Blueberry Cream Ale. Stop!

Week 20, January 23, 2023. A particularly pleasing parody of the well-known Banksy street art (fascinating back story), this Barreled Souls blueberry jam stout features a plucky pun. Thank you to Nikki in our Finishing Department for flagging this. And thank you Barreled Souls for this great story.

Week 19, January 16, 2023. Mount Monadnock, the one that “stands alone” in southern NH, is a favorite to climb, photograph and use in business names. But for this bock (strong, dark lager), using the name in a pun is really a thing of beauty.

Week 18, January 9, 2023. For everyone who watched the show, had the action figures and/or dressed up as a Power Ranger for Halloween, this one’s for you. Power up Proper Brewing!

Week 17, January 2, 2023. What better New Year’s message than, “Carpe Diem/Seize the Day?” Stony Creek Brewery starts our year with a wonderfully creative pun to describe their “American Hefe… infused with Bigelow’s Earl Grey tea,” presumably giving a nice caffeine kick along with the distinctive Earl Grey bergamot citrus flavor… “making your day that much brighter.”

Week 16, December 26. The label says “The Shnow must go on!” Here, here and cheers! The story gets better: This collaboration beer supports Dion’s Dreamers, the “official foundation of NFL Buffalo Bill’s star Dion Dawkins, Dion’s Dreamers was founded with the goal of providing mentorship and support to young men and women in underserved communities, as well as those in a place of mental, financial or physical hardship. Dion’s Dreamers also aims to advocate for vulnerable populations by increasing awareness of the environmental issues that directly affect their communities.” Snow great! Amherst Label has some diehard Bills fans as well as diehard beer fans so we are delighted to feature this label in our Monday Pun Day series. Go Bills.

Week 13, December 5. Sailing the 7 Cs…. Could the first C stand for Christmas? Nope, if you look closely you can see Calypso, Columbus, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook, Citra and Crystal on the hops. Seven varieties of hops! The 8th and 9th C could be clever and creative! And number 10: Congratulations to Brewster River for this great pun to start the month of December.

Week 12, November 28, the start of the holiday season. We’ve been waiting a while now to share a pun from this special customer whose name is already a great pun. So, this week, ahem, we have a double pun—“A stitch in pine” which ties back to the name Sew Hop’d. Love, love, love. Happy Holidays!

Week 11, November 21, Thanksgiving week! In celebration of Thanksgiving, we present a tribute to the traditional Thanksgiving garnish fruit, the cranberry. But if you read the label (every label tells a story!), this design and excellent pun are celebrating a person:

“Cranberry Bob, the farmer behind the first commercial cranberry-growing operation in Vermont… and the inspiration for Americran. Our parnership with the Vermont Cranberry Company has lasted for nearly a decade and has created the perfect union of apples and cranberries. They are, after all, two of the finest fruits in the Northeast.”

Seriously, how cool is that? Happy Thanksgiving everyone! And cheers to Cranberry Bob of Vermont!

Week 8. October 31. We saved this one for H-AL-loween! It’s a little challenging to read this without wanting to add another phrase…. But it’s worth the effort. Congratulations to Rockingham Brewing and Tuckaway Tavern for this spooktacular creation.

Week 5. October 10. Who doesn’t love a “pun”kin-themed pun? This fun one labels a “blonde ale crafted with Blueberry Bay Farm pumpkin and a hint of ginger, nutmeg and vanilla.” Yum!

Week 4. October 3. The label tells the story behind this pun: “The goal with Cone Flakes was to make a beer so blisteringly hoppy that its flavors are akin to eating a bowl of hops with a spoon…. We suggest drinking it instead.” How fun is that? Hats off to our friends at Firefly Hollow.

Week 3, September 26. Moat Mountain’s Gnomaste IPA is this week’s Monday Pun to meditate on. Notice the gnome is not hopping—he’s sitting.

For weeks, if not months, we have been talking about starting a Monday Pun Day page and sharing the
Week 2, September 19, 2022: We can just picture the faces of our friends at Liquid Therapy as “IPA” and “eye” converged in their thoughts and bam, “Poke me in the IPA” happened. Dramatic art and a clever pun! Happy Monday Pun Day.
