If you’re looking to open a business of any kind in today’s market, one of the most important marketing factors to consider that may be overlooked is your brewery website design. 

If you’re starting a brewery or already own one and simply rebranding your website, you already know how competitive the industry you’re in is. One way to stay ahead of the curve is to show your consumers a unique, exciting, and enticing website that draws them to trying your beers over other breweries in your area.

Creating the perfect website for your brewery will depend entirely on your brand; however, there are some features and content that have proven to be successful on brewery websites in the past. 

For instance, you decided to create your brewery somehow – tell that story, people want to hear it! Additionally, share your inspirations for your artwork and the taste of your beer. This is the content consumers are visiting your website to read.

On top of great content, using artwork to match your brand and even videos and animations can add great interest in your brand. Most likely, if someone is on your brewery website, they are looking for somewhere to enjoy themselves – show them the fun experience they will have at your brewery before they even step through the door.
