Waukesha, WI — The Boelter Beverage Group, a leading supplier of branded glass and barware in the brewing industry, and Granite City Food & Brewery, a polished casual American restaurant and microbrewer with 30 locations in 13 states, announce a partnership to refresh the restaurant’s corporate brand identity and each of its microbrews.
The move coincides with Granite City’s restaurant makeovers currently underway and the new look for its future restaurants. “We had been searching for the right design group, who not only understood our business, but captured the essence of our brand,” said RJ Nab, Director of Field Brewing Operations at Granite City. “Boelter presented ideas and a vision for our craft beer brands that made it seem like they read our mind.”
Boelter’s creative services group first assignment was to update Granite City’s logo, followed by logo and label designs for their current microbrews. Rebranding their seasonal beers is next on the list. In addition to the new identity and packaging work, Boelter will design new glass and barware, including tap handles as well as merchandise and apparel.
“We’ve been in the business of branding glassware for four decades, but this new partnership underscores the branding expertise and design talents of our creative services team,” said Rick Boelter, President of Boelter Beverage Group. “Whether it’s glassware or apparel, we’ll make your beer look as good as it tastes.”
