I haven't seen a commercial beer label like this, but... Some
self-adhesive labels designed for office use have a glue that disolves in
oil. I used to use WD-40, but while it's slower, plain old vegetable oil
works just as well. Saturate the label and let it sit for five minutes or
so. The label should lift off easily, without tearing. Unless the label is
coated and won't let the oil penetrate. It goes slower then. You still
have to use detergent to clean off the oily residue, though.
