Insight Brewing

Insight Brewing


Industry: Craft beer

Founded: 2015

Client: Since 2015

Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota

Twin Cities Metropolitan Area is a Top 10 craft beer market by volume

A new craft brewery opens every 1.5 days in the U.S.


Insight Brewing had enough brewery space to rank among the top five craft brewers by volume in Minnesota. They just needed a thirsty following to match their hunger for growth.


The brand positioning was inspired by truth. One of the founders had traveled the world to learn craft brewing. Every brew at Insight is inspired by a specific style or ingredient discovered during the founder’s world travels. While most new breweries double down on being “local”, we encouraged Insight to leverage the global inspiration that helped create each unique beer.

Beer names were named and narratives written, weaving the founder’s stories into tales of travel, legends made, and victories won. Among a sea of rivals, a dark and intriguing package design told a story all its own. For every journey, a story. For every story, a beer. For every beer, a toast to the next adventure.

The Results

  • Acquisitions, mergers and shifts in leadership can challenge agency-client relationships. Helping Delta Air Lines navigate sky-high transitions over the last 20 years has revealed a world of commitment.

  • Alerus was being outspent by competitors in a time of critical growth. requiring a bold, laser-focused response.

  • What motivates action—incentive or inspiration? The balance between promotional and brand efforts can be delicate, but we managed to find the right blend of both with our accomplices at Gap.
