We like to keep things neat on Untappd so we have a few guidelines regarding labels that anyone uploading labels to our system should check out. We have an extensive database of beers and breweries all over the world. For this reason we like to try to keep our labels/imagery consistent. For beer labels we will only accept official bottle labels or beer logos. We will not accept photos of a beer bottle, glass, or zoomed in photos of the labels, or labels that include a Surgeon General/Health Warning. Un-cropped beer labels are preferred because people can see your full label without pinching and zooming to see what it looks like. It gives you better brand attention. However, if you are using a wrapped can label - please crop the label to only show the front. If you're found to be uploading incorrect labels - they will be removed by a Moderator.
We recommend that you submit all images in the highest resolution that you can find (over 500x500). Only JPEG and PNG file types are allowed. This helps when we create different sizes and allows for the best full size label viewing for our users.
Acceptable Beer Label Types
Can be found pretty much anywhere by looking on the brewery's website or doing a Google Search. If it is distributed, bottled, or canned you will find them a majority of the time.
Usually found on the brewery's website or by doing a quick Google search. If you can't find a label then you may use a logo. It's preferable if it's on a transparent or solid colored background.

Things to Note:
- Once you upload a label – there is no way to remove it back the default image. If you upload an image that you need to reset back to the default, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include the beer page URL in your request.
- Breweries who have claimed their brewery page can upload their own labels.
- Anyone can also send in labels by creating a new ticket and selecting the category as "Beer Labels & Brewery Logos" - and a Moderator will approve and upload.
- You can also Propose an Edit to a beer and upload a label yourself - which will be approved by a Moderator if it follows these guidelines.
You can and SHOULD always check-out beers on the app to see additional examples of acceptable beer labels.
