Cheers to the Underdogs

As a small regional brewer in Saskatchewan, Great Western Brewing Company’s brands Original 16 and Great Western sit on the same shelves as big beer companies. They had the roots, the product, and the story—but lacked a true connection with their core market. We helped build strong local brands that beer drinkers would be loyal to.

What we did:

  • Branding
  • Content Production
  • Creative Development
  • Packaging
  • Digital Plan


of Saskatchewan respondents strongly agree that Original 16 is “the brand for me” in 2018
