CHANNELING THE ISLANDS

Island Brewing Co. has been operating a brewery and tasting room with a view of the Channel Islands, off the coast of California, since 2001.

The Brandit came on board to evolve the brand to better embody Island’s spirit, recapture craft industry momentum and expand into cans.
