3 things to consider when naming a brewery

1. Start with considering your offering and your customers:

  • What type of brewery is it? Craft brewery, microbrewery, farm brewery, etc.
  • What is the atmosphere of your business? Traditional, alternative, hipster, on the corner, etc.
  • Which neighborhood or district is your cafe located in? Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York City, etc.
  • What type of customers do you have? Singles, couples, office workers, creators, etc.

2. What are your values and background:

Consider your brewery’s values first. What story do you tell your customers with your name?

Effective marketing is based on articulating and extending a harmonious concept from the inside out. Communicating what defines your business is how to engage potential customers because it puts your story in context.

3. The best brewery names often have a good story behind their name

See if you can find some interesting story or fact about the history of your building or the neighborhood and incorporate that into the name of your brewery.
