The bad this week is from a brewery I like, New Zealand's Epic Brewing. And it's not so much terrible as it is a cautionary tale:
Okay, now the good, and it comes from St. Augustine's Mile Marker Brewing:
Christian Riese Lassen or, even more, Wyland, in style, with smooth colors and a fantasy-esque color scheme. Yes, the font is a distorted Papyrus, but it's not as bad as some. The art is done by Mile Marker VP of Marketing and wildlife painter Mark Mueller. According to the Springfield Brew Crew Blog, wildlife is heavily tied into the brand and operations of Mile Marker:
With a name like Mile Marker and a sea turtle on their logo you might think that this brewery is eco-friendly. And that would be a good assumption since Mike and Vance plan to support many animal-centric charities. Spent grains will be donated to Diamonds in the Rough, an animal rescue charity that specializes in saving work animals — particularly horses — and nursing them back to health. They also plan to align themselves with sea turtle rescue agencies in keeping with the spirit of their logo.Especially in a socially-conscious industry like craft beer, actions and sustainability are all part of a brewery's brand, and this sounds like a well thought-out branding effort, from beginning to end. I'll look forward to seeing more of what Mile Marker has to offer.
