At our initial Beer & Branding event on July 7th, local designers were paired with home brewers to ideate, brew, and design a branding package for a beer based on a secret ingredient. Beer was judged on August 9th at NoDa Brewing Company, which also hosted our recent Beer & Branding Showcase. Thai Me Up Honey, brewed by Stephen Williams, was chosen as the winning beer, and was also honored as one of that week’s NoDable Series features.
The Showcase event also featured the work by Queen City designers, who worked behind the scenes with brewers to create branding packages specific to the beers the brewers concocted. We’d like to take this moment to thank all of the designers and brewers who participated and made both events such a success. More importantly, today this space serves as place for you to see all of the designer entries; above we’ve compiled a slide show for your enjoyment.
