Food & Drink
GRB is a small micro-brewery in SE Alaska. Our facility sells tours and provides a smoked meat buffet to cruise ship passengers. While at our facility these passengers purchase our local beers and homemade root beer. Because of the pure, fresh spring water used in our production of both root beer and beers, we have become well known for our quality product. GRB has sold both beer and root beer in kegs to local restaurants and bars. The demand has now increase so that we are now bottling both the root beer and beer. We have sold root beer in the bottle to the cruise ship. This market could become are largest purchaser. Presently our target audience comprises of local Skagway residents and passengers that come to Skagway on a cruise ship. Tourism is a huge part of our business. As a tourism destination gift shop sales make up a large percentage of our sales. Our # selling product is our "Gold Rush Root Beer" Followed closely by our "Fireweed Honey Blonde" and our Blue Collar Brew"
What's your vision?
We want a label designed that could be used on our product bottles as well as look good on T-Shirts and pint glasses. So a full color version as well as a version with 1-4 colors would be needed. This contest would be for our "Gold Rush Root Beer" label. If this contest yields positive results, we will most likely be contacting the winner to produce artwork for the rest of our products right away. We want our logo included in the label or some very identifiable mark tied to Gold Rush Brewery (for reference look at any Alaskan Brewery beer label.) By keeping the identifiable mark on every label we can change the art work and still the customer will recognize it as a Gold Rush Brewery product. The label needs to incorporate the Klondike Gold Rush theme that Skagway is known for. The root beer is our true flag ship product and it should be utterly and completely periodic to the gold rush because this is what our clientele associates us with and that is what sells the product. It is made in Alaska from Alaska products and the first thing that comes to mind when you like about Skagway, Alaska (besides the cold weather) is the famous gold rush. Humor We would like the design to be contemporary/trendy but still with a Klondike gold rush theme. There must be a Gold Rush minor on the label. Sled dogs and other gold rush characters may also be included if it adds to the artwork. – see examples attached. Humorous illustrations may also be used but not required.
In the past we did a low budget contest for our label and would like to step it up with this one. I have attached the winner from that contest. I have also attached our OLD Root beer label (pdf) that would need major improvements.
