We have been working with Visit Milwaukee to do something that we think is extraordinary. Back in the 80’s, Milwaukee’s tourist tagline was, “Milwaukee: Great Place on a Great Lake.” Splashed above the tagline was a hand-painted “M” in the image of a wave of water. We always loved the logo, yet it was retired around 1993 to make room for newer and more integrated marketing efforts.
However, Brew City is working with the progressive minds at Visit Milwaukee to re-release the vintage logo. “We have created a small line of products that pay homage to the design, while using our most advanced cut-and-sew apparel, softest inks, and art techniques,” says owner George Keppler, who worked directly with Visit Milwaukee to develop the line.
“We love to create products that spark strong memories. When people see the logo, I think they’ll remember it right away. Products with this logomark haven’t been available to the public for almost 20 years.” said Frank Keppler, “I really want people to sense the history, when they touch and feel the products.”
The Great Place on a Great Lake line will be released in early March, with additional products scheduled throughout the year. A percentage of all sales will go back to Visit Milwaukee.
You can pre-order the vintage shirt shown above on our website, at brewcityonline.com, or by going to Brew City at Grand Avenue Mall. More retailers will begin to carry the line, as well.
