So I'm walking to work in downtown Seattle this morning from my usual bus stop on 3rd Ave., heading east up Pike Street. After crossing 4th I happen to look up, above Ben Bridge jewelers, to the second-floor windows of the 4th & Pike Building (a building where, coincidentally, I worked for about 10 years) and I see nothing but beer tap handles lining every window, on the inside of the glass. On the interior walls I can see a bunch of neon signs: Stone, Firestone Walker, etc. After I get to work I do a little investigating. Apparently this is the headquartes of Taphandles.com, which has been in business since 1999. Apparently they do marketing and branding for breweries. Seems like kind of a random place for such a company, but it got me wondering. Does this company do marketing/branding for lots of different breweries nationwide, or primarily NW/West Coast? How long have they been @ this location? (I've worked downtown, mostly on Pike Street, for the better part of the last 15 years. This is the first time I've ever noticed them.) Which breweries use them, or other similar companies for that matter? Are there many of these kinds of companies out there that specialize primarily in beer? Percentage-wise, how many breweries handle their own graphic design vs. those that hire a company like this? Just curious what anyone knows about this side of the brewing world. I know nothing about it. P.S. wasn't sure if I should post this in the general forum or NW, but since this appears to be a local company I figured I'd start it local.
