Lock 15 Brewing Co. is a new, local venture offering year-round and seasonal beer and food options in Akron, Ohio. Evolve worked closely with the founders of Lock 15 Brewing Co. to tell their story with a user-friendly website. We also made sure the site was easy to maintain, as seasonal beers and restaurant offerings can change frequently.
Since the brewery itself was under construction during the website project, we worked closely with the founders to understand their branding and take inspiration from the websites of similar breweries. The result is a combination of clean, flat backgrounds, as well as rustic textures that create an inviting user experience.
Another important aspect of this website was the content – we know that when people are planning a visit to a new bar or restaurant, a few key pieces of information are most important: location, hours, and food and drink options. We’ve showcased that information front and center, along with the option to make a reservation. The beer section of the site highlights their custom-illustrated beer logos, along with descriptions, stats and the story behind the name of each beer, all inspired by local history. The restaurant page breaks out food options by category, while also listing key details, like which items are gluten-free or vegetarian, as well as prices.
This easy-to-read content along with a clean, yet rustic design creates an inviting user experience that encourages customers to plan their visit to Lock 15 Brewing Co.
