What is Future Brew?

Future Brew is a beer company that uses surplus bread to create delicious pale ales.


Toast Ale: Also creates beer from bread and has been operating since 2016.

Green King: Supplies beer to most university pubs across the country and is the biggest wholesale beer distributor in the country. Some of the beers included in their portfolio are Stella Artios and San Miguel.

Target Audience

Primarily university students and adults aged 28 and younger.

Unique Selling Point

Future Brew’s beer is environmentally sustainable since it’s made out of surplus bread that would otherwise go to waste. With every pint of beer, 160 grams of CO2 emissions are saved from being released into the atmosphere. Future Brew can supply bread beer kegs at a competitive price.

What does the old logo stand for?

At the moment we feel that our logo is a little too futuristic and scientific, to us, it doesn’t encompass what we feel the business is. The logo comes across as too space-like, it was intended originally to imply the idea that the beer is the beer of “the future” as it is able to reduce food wastage in the process of it being produced.

We are a company that is attempting to overcome the issue of food waste and inspiring change, we want to be regarded as bold, eye-catching and environmentally conscious and feel that although the current space/planet theme is an interesting log but also too vague.


Typography: Bold that portrays confidence, stability and trust such as BrewDog and Extinction Rebellion. Examples: Valencia CF rebranding – This design is bold and simple but has character. Brixton SVG – This has great texture.

Colours: Green, black and rustic colour palettes that contrast nicely with each other.

Loved Brands
