Summit beer will have a new look this year, its packaging art freshened with visuals depicting Minnesota landmarks and the craft brew’s ingredients.
St. Paul-based Summit, Minnesota’s largest and oldest dedicated craft brewer, said Wednesday that the new packaging art will be phased in gradually over 2014.
Summit partnered with Minneapolis-based Duffy & Partners, a corporate design shop, to develop “visual stories” to grace bottles of beer. For instance, Summit Red IPA’s label includes a canoe on a serene lake with a hop bud as the sun.
“The new packaging art commemorates a busy time for us,” Mark Stutrud, Summit’s president and founder, said in a news release. “Just within the last year, we’ve released several new beers, doubled our capacity with a cellar expansion, and bought a new space for warehousing, offices and, eventually, a canning line.”
