Freshly Wrapped: An Inside Look at Label Branding Strategies
Ryan Wheaton, Founder, Craft Brew Creative, Nick Longo, Owner, Longo Designs, Alex and Larissa Larabee, Owners, Big Stump Brewing Co, Sterling and Ilana Steffen, Trademark Brewing Co.

The explosion of canning has created a new canvas for many breweries to extend and build their brand. Many are starting to package beer for the first time, transitioning to other package formats, or finding it a good time to rebrand. In the months leading up to Summit, two professional beer branding and design experts have been working with two breweries to develop a label brand strategy. Follow along in these real-life case studies showing the process from start to finish. See how these labels come to life, the process of working with designers, and the final brand solutions.

Small Brewery Marketing: Making a Large Impact with a Tiny Staff
Derek Gallanosa, Head Brewer, Moksa Brewing Company

Are you so small that you cannot justify hiring a dedicated Marketing Manager? Do you ever worry about how to promote your next beer release while on the brew deck watching for a boil over?  This seminar is for small breweries with high ambitions for their business within this competitive market.

Working with Distributors: Maintaining Your Brands, Building Relationships and Achieving Goals
Marie Davenport, Owner, Lime Ventures, Jason Mussetter, General Manager, Mussetter Distributing, Chris Dunn, Owner, Delta Pacific Beverage Company

The real work starts after you partner with a distributor. In an industry where distributors don’t take as many chances on unproven brands, the desires of the customer changes daily and out-of-market retail is more competitive than ever, suppliers have a chance to discuss how to set and maintain distribution goals. Learn from three distributors how your brewery can work to grow “attention share,” stay fun, remain competitive and build the right internal infrastructure to be successful in today’s marketplace.
