Review to see the types of posts your audience Likes
Posts include some type of image our brand.”
The Frothy Beard Brewery brand:
A character named Finnegan was created. And they wanted this character to go on a journey. He is seen throughout the brewery and on different merchandise going through adventures. The brand is geeky and fun!
The Frothy Beard Brewery logo was created by Tami Boyce, a local Charleston artist.
Notable quote from the interview:
“Everybody has a media company in their pocket. Unlike a decade ago you now have a video camera, you have a photography camera, you have the ability to capture content and literally blast it out it to the entire world for basically free.”
Examples mentioned by Wesley
Frothy Beard’s new location is a former church. To celebrate they brewed a saison and named it Holy Water.
