Spring is here and Summer is just around the corner, which means one thing. It’s time to start planning those lazy, carefree days of cookouts, games, and cracking open ice cold beers.
That’s where our newest Featured Client, O’Connor Brewing Company, comes in! Based in the Ghent district of Norfolk, Virginia, O’Connor Brewing Co. combines a love of the local with the expertise and commitment to excellence of the international beer market.
In true beer-aficionado fashion, the company’s founder developed his love for beer in college. But soon, simply loving beer wasn’t enough…and just like that, a passion for brewing his own craft beer was born!
Kevin became such an expert in the history and culture of beer that he even wrote his senior thesis on how to start a brewery.
In addition to his love of beer, college is also where Kevin met the other great love of his life, his future wife, Penny. As their love flourished and they explored breweries and began crafting their own beer together, Penny continued to encourage Kevin to follow his dream. She could tell that beer was more than just a passion for Kevin – it was clear that it was also a potential career.
With Penny’s support, Kevin began working at the St. George Brewery, and then moved to Specialty Beverage to learn everything he could about the distributor side of things. It wasn’t long before Kevin knew he wanted to start a brewery of his own.
Fast forward almost a decade, and now, O’Connor Brewing Co. offers brewery tours, tastings, and of course, a wide array of beers! They also offer truly epic private and public events, and they’ve become a staple throughout Virginia. They’re committed to giving back, regularly doing promotions to raise money for Earth Day and supporting local charities and causes like Dining Out for Life. They even donate a portion of the proceeds from their Endless Saison series to the Virginia Beach Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. To say the least, we’re proud to call O’Connor Brewing a client!
We were both thrilled and honored when O’Connor Brewing Co. approached us about designing a custom retail display for their El Guapo Agave IPA.
Since they’re a fun, interactive brand that thrives on their relationship with their fans and customers, we knew we had to create a display that would stand out – just like their beers do. We also wanted it to fit with the festive theme of the brew itself.
And of course, as fellow marketers, we understood the importance of promoting and showing off their brand with something that was social media-worthy, both to spread the word about this awesome company, and so fans of their brews could find each other!
So, we focused on creating a display that would check all the boxes:
- on brand
- able to handle the high customer demand
We’re thrilled to hear that the team at O’Connor Brewing Co. is happy with our work, saying that working with us “was a great experience” and that we were “immediate and polite” in our response.
We always try to hit the nail on the head for our customers, and hearing from O’Connor Brewing Co. that we “turned their vision into reality” and that we were able to handle their “big asks” and “executed their needs without hesitation” means we accomplished just that!
We look forward to developing a continuing relationship with O’Connor Brewing Co., and know our display will help keep their bottles flying off the shelves!
