ps you can. After all, there’s a lot to be said about how craft beers have carved out a huge niche in the beer drinking market. They didn’t do it by spending tons of money sponsoring race cars or sporting events. They didn’t do it by using Clydesdale’s or purchasing Super Bowl advertising. They did it by knowing their audience and creating products their target audience would love. They crafted more than beer. They crafted marketing strategies we all can learn from.
