Alaskan Brewing has proven it can stand the test of time. However, their packaging couldn’t quite. Enter: Blindtiger design…
Founded in 1993, Unibroue is one of Canada's veteran and premiere craft breweries. Often overlooked by the everyday craft consumer–that may be in part to blame because of the brand's tired look and, frankly, somewhat gaudy packaging. Thankfully, some fellow Québécois stepped in to address the brand. Montreal's design firm, lg2boutique, began rolling out the new Unibroue effort in the fall of 2015. From a far simplified logo, to a strong typographic labeling system, to a much less ambiguous packaging lineup–Unibroue is now refreshed without losing it's authenticity.
