Beer & Branding: Ale Syndicate

Beer & Branding: Ale Syndicate

LOGAN SQUARE, CHICAGO

To follow up last week's "Best New Brewer in Indiana" (18th Street) as our feature, we hone in on the branding from the "Best New Brewer in Illinois." Ale Syndicate is Logan Square's brewing crown jewel, housed in part of the Green Exchange campus on Diversey. Although they began as the 'New Chicago Beer Co.' and plans for a home on the South Side, they've made huge strides not just with their facility, but with their beer portfolio -- and of course, they have an impressive brand to match. That visual identity was tackled by Chicago firm DesignScout.

Stranger & Stranger, a London/New York design shop, consistently churns out some of the top packaging design in the world. Often though, it's for liquor and wine packaging. So, although designed a couple years back now, I was excited to see work of theirs in the beer spectrum. Here, we'll take a quick peek at some 12oz 4-packs they designed for Ballistic Brewing.
