Take16 Brewery

the challenge

Take16 Brewery is a hometown, homegrown brewery proudly founded and established by the community of Luverne, MN. As the foundation of the brewery was laid, the foundation of the brand was also established. And as the brewery was constructed, so was the brand’s identity. Capsule moved through the entire brand development process with Take16 to establish a visual identity that didn’t stray far from Luverne’s main street.

the name and logo

Take16 Brewing Company is where small town memories are made and a small town heritage is shared. The name honors the heritage and old town feel that is essential to the brand. Certain elements in the identity were designed to specifically reflect this legacy; the tire tracks represent the journey taken and the shield shape resembles old highway signage.

the solution

It all starts with a name. Take16 Brewing Company is where small-town memories are made and small-town heritage is shared. The name pays homage to US Highway 16, a 1,600-mile thoroughfare that fostered many new towns along its borders, including Luverne. Certain elements in the identity were designed to specifically reflect this legacy; the tire tracks represent the journey taken and the shield shape resembles old highway signage.

packaging system

This humble, authentic design look is carried across the entire packaging system – from bottles to boxes, any container in which the beer is housed maintains a unique and consistent look. Together, the pieces create a system that is rustic, recognizable and reminiscent of the humble and honest folk they were designed for.
