Beer & Branding: Marz Community Brewing

Beer & Branding: Marz Community Brewing

BRIDGEPORT, CHICAGO

UPDATED: Marz Community Brewing is named such, well because they're a small community of makers founded by Ed and Mike Marszewksi. You might be familiar with their other projects already (Maria's Community Bar is one). So it's no surprise, really, that a brewery was added to the list. And with this venture, they are definitely exhibiting plenty of brewing creativity.

Beer & Branding: Revolution Brewing

Beer & Branding: Revolution Brewing

AVONDALE, CHICAGO

Chicago's Revolution Brewing is no stranger to growth. And with all of that growth, new recipes, special releases and tap space comes the need for some well considered design. Their brand's image is one of lightheartedness, yet rebellion. Their brewery name and ethos alone hints strongly toward the 'stick-it-to-the-man' mentality. So when it came to building a brand around that ethos, Ian Law of Mighty Few design, had plenty of options to pull from, for the task at hand. We asked Ian what the approach was to tackling such a monumental design task.

Beer & Branding: Spiteful Brewing

Beer & Branding: Spiteful Brewing

NORTHCENTER, CHICAGO

Spiteful Brewing is a Chicago entity you've most certainly seen all around town by this point, despite maybe not knowing where in town they actor are located. Tucked in the basement of a nondescript Northcenter-meets-Ravenswood building, they are producing arguably some of the city's best beer. But just as impressive as their stellar brews, are their efficiency and tongue-in-cheek branding. That is in no small part to one fifth of their crew, in-house creative team...Luke Snobeck. We asked Luke to give us his perspective on the Spiteful brand and what the design approach means exactly.
