Craft breweries are popping up around the country. In every community we work with they either recently celebrated the opening of a new brewery or desperately want to open their first brewery.
For a number of reasons, breweries are the perfect example of economic development:
On a recent city branding project in Waupaca, WI we had the opportunity to sit down with two brand new brewery owners, John Parent of 22 Lakes Brewing and Brandon Olttmann of H.H. Hinder Brewing, as well as the Brennan Kane their Director of Economic Development for the City of Waupaca and Terri Schulz the President of the Waupaca Chamber.
