    Lino Lager is a special limited bottling of Royale Brewing’s Pilsner that was created as a collaboration with Stumptown Printers on the occasion of TypeCon 2018 to celebrate Ottmar Mergenthaler and his Linotype machine.

    Appropriately, the label was typeset entirely on a Linotype machine and letterpress printed.

    The design features Olympian, a highly under-appreciated typeface by Matthew Carter and one of the last typefaces designed for hot metal typesetting. Also present are DeVinne Condensed Outline, Spartan Heavy, a handful of miscellaneous dingbats, plus decorative elements made with Linotype border matrix slides 6 point 1317 (for the orange diamonds) and 4 point 1617 (for the small double-dot rows).
