In order to maintain a strong and consistent brand, having a good brand system and brand guidelines is an essential tool. It not only provides your internal team with a brand compass, but it is also a very valuable resource for media, vendors, and service providers. In any way possible, you want to be able to take control of your brand and not have it run away from you.
In terms of brewing, you can consider a brand guideline like a brewing recipe. If you want to have consistent, good beer, you will want to rely on a solid process and a recipe to follow. A good system and guideline will provide you with this recipe for a successful brand.

We dive into how you can take a brand audit by analyzing what your brewery is putting out to the world. There are definitely some great ways you can start analyzing and putting together some brand rules to live by.
