“One thing we know — the craft beer landscape is crowded. To differentiate, beer drinkers are looking for a good story in their bottle,” said Ted Marti, president, Schell’s, and a fifth generation member of the brewing family. “We’ve got that covered — 154 years of deep tradition, history, variety and innovation all rooted in our German heritage. Our campaign seeks to bring that story to life to reach a new generation of craft beer drinkers.”
Haberman, a full-service marketing agency with a clearly defined mission — to tell the stories of pioneers who are making a difference in the world, began working with Schell’s in summer 2013. The agency also handles marketing for the city of New Ulm, and is considering setting up its first office outside the Twin Cities in the southern Minnesota town, population 13,440.
