MittenBrew is backed by a team of seasoned writers and photographers who not only produce authentic content but live and breath the lifestyle. They work and play in breweries, distilleries, pubs, and independent restaurants. If there is an establishment and story worth sharing, they want to tell it.
In August 2015, Steph Harding became the new owner of MittenBrew taking over for Bryan Esler who started MittenBrew in 2011. With this transition came a new trajectory of both being a news source as well as a full service marketing firm offering everything from photography to website design for breweries, pubs and companies.
The separation of MittenBrew being a news source and a marketing firm needed to be set right at the beginning so there wouldn’t be confusion as to what they offer their clients free or charge and what is something a group would need to hire MittenBrew for. The site also needed to create spaces for lots of news items to be shared without needing lots of large imagery as many of the news items were press releases and events to occur in the future.
The new site breaths with plenty of white space and a clear and simple navigation. With a fun fixed sidebar and area for groups to load their upcoming event the site is set to serve both the news focused and the clients interested in hiring MittenBrew for their abilities.
