Cedar Brewing Company

When Rob and Tari Copenhaver built the first brew pub in Cedar Rapids, they asked us to develop a logo and brand identity that looked as cool as the pubs they frequented in Chicago, Omaha, and other big cities. Our solution did just that.

We developed the logo, signage, stationery system, and other miscellaneous items, like beer glasses and coasters, to help Cedar Brewing establish a strong brand identity. We supported our new clients by stopping by often for important "meetings" at the pub. 

When we first developed the logo and brand identity for Cedar Brewing, we were itching to design the menu, too. Unfortunately, they didn’t have enough money in their budget during their startup phase, so we didn’t get to work on it for several years. When we finally got the green light to work on it, we worked with creative partner Doug Benton (a terrific photographer) to create a menu that was a delicious addition to the brand identity. 

And what better way to promote Cedar Rapids’ first micro-brewery than to post enormous photos of their delicious food and handcrafted beers on giant billboards near Rockwell Collins, one of the largest employers in town? Engineers need to have "important" meetings after work, too, you know!
