The Bear and Barley is a craft brewery startup from Edmonton, AB. Their logo represents the silhouette of a lone bear resting in a farmer’s field after a long trek in from the mountains. A vintage san-serif typeface is used to pair with the rustic nature of the black bear. Wordplay is used in the bear and barley tagline “Brewed with our BEAR hands” and also used as a fun way to market their product flavors.
