Spotlight On NW Creative: Full Sail Brewing Co.

Creative goes way beyond advertising. For instance, when you go the extra mile to providing tangible value, you are being creative. There are as many ways to do this as there are creative people working for forward thinking companies. With this in mind, I’d like to draw your attention for a moment to the work of Hood River’s Full Sail Brewing Company.
According to The Oregonian, Full Sail was honored by the State of Oregon for their outstanding commitment to sustainable business practices.

“Our brewery’s amazing location nestled between the Columbia River and
the snow-capped peak of Mt. Hood, in Hood River, Oregon makes us all feel a deep connection for our surroundings. Employees are the owners at Full Sail – and because Oregon is our home – we feel empowered to run the brewery in the most responsible manner every day. As much as we are committed to brew great beers, we are also committed to our community. It would be impossible to live and work in the Columbia River Gorge and not be inspired by the sheer beauty of the place. It is the blue skies, green forests, snow-capped mountains and pristine rivers surrounding us that insure our dedication,” added Jamie Emmerson, Full Sail’s Executive Brewmaster.

It enough to make a man thirsty for Oregon kind beer.

About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
