Half Pints Brewing Company
Create a visual identity for an independent, family-run craft brewery
Half Pints Brewing Company is a Winnipeg-based, locally-owned independent craft brewer. Started in 2006, the family-owned and operated brewer was early to the local craft beer scene and is a well-known brand in the market. From a small home brewery to a significant player in the local and national craft beer market, Half Pints came to Guppy looking for a visual identity for their starter operation.
From concept to delivery, we worked to ensure the brewery's visual identity represented the hand-made craft of brewing beer and the story of Half Pints. After designing the logo, we continued to evolve the hand made look to labels and packaging for their flagship, one of a kind and small-batch brews. Guppy has also created a series of merchandise, including clothing and related products.
