Rgreff got their new menu by running a design contest:
*Guaranteed Prize* Design a VINTAGE, SPEAKEASY Style Beverage Menu for Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub
Check out Rgreff's Menu contest…
We are a brewpub featuring house-brewed beer, craft cocktails, an eclectic menu of locally sourced food that we describe as having a "gourmet food truck" vibe. Our customers tend to be educated, adventurous, traveled, and have a good sense of humor. Age range is 30-60
What's your vision?
We are renovating our 20 year old restaurant and coming out with a new well-designed drinks menu that has personality, a coherent theme, and fits with our concept to help us re-launch. Our brewpub is in an historic building with brick walls, wood floors, and high tin ceilings. The renovation style will be "industrial chic" and the primary colors will be black and ivory. Contents of the drinks menu change frequently so it will be updated once or twice a week and the text needs to be easily edited in Photoshop Elements and printed in-house. The style I am envisioning has been described as "Speakeasy" and will feature some simple hand drawn elements. I have attached a description of the content for the drinks menu, the logo, and a couple of designs that I like. We definitely like the clean style of a grid layout, but if you feel something is better, by all means go for it! Design should be black and white with an emphasis on ease of changing out the beers.
Our brewery is an institution in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We were the first brewpub to open in our county and the 7th in the state (that now has over 200). We were awarded the Soul of Washtenaw County" award in 2014 and are a favorite haunt for locals. Our personality is un-fussy and a little irreverent. We are family friendly and vegetarian/vegan friendly and have been described as "the only place you'll see hipsters kayaking to the bar sitting next to business men in suits". We are also known for being Michigan's first solar-powered brewery, and the first brewery in Michigan to produce sour beers.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Menu starts at €179.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their menu.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Rgreff collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Marcy was fabulous and did a great job meeting the brief and translating the ideas I had into the planner. I had to get a team member to help me keep the project going and Marcy was patient when dealing with my team, as well as keen to ensure we got it right. Would love to work with Marcy on future projects. Thank you so much Marcy.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
