Microbrew font by Jay Hilgert (Albatross type foundry) is a vintage letterpress display typeface family, designed in 14 distinctive versatile styles supplemented by a couple of decorative glyph sets – Banners and Ornaments, adding the final touch to an intriguing retro style infusion. Microbrew font family is a charming mixture between detailed rich in texture styles working well at large sizes, and cleaner legible ones – for smaller point sizes.
Microbrew font is an all caps display typeface with the lowercase acting as alternates. For super easy alternates you can just mix uppercase and lowercase letters. It includes double-letter ligatures adding more realism to the wood type letterpress retro outlook. You have a great number of available combinations – inline, 3D, hatched letters, shadows, plus a huge stock of ornaments, catchwords, old style numbers, and lots of retro symbols to create genuine and completed vintage-style designs. Microbrew typeface family is very versatile and works perfectly for weddings, birthdays, restaurants, coffee shops, music, etc., to name a few of the possible areas of application.
OpenType features include automatic fractions, subscript numbers, superscript numbers, and double-letter ligatures.
