Kirkland Wheeler is the head brewer for Pinthouse Brewing in Austin, Texas.

In "Discovering a Craft" and "Embracing Change" we explored Kirkland's journey as he developed his craft as a brewer with Pinthouse Brewing.

This 90 second and 30 second spot was commissioned by The Looma Project and was rolled out in-store at grocery locations in Austin as a part of an innovative story-driven marketing strategy.

Our approach was to examine the microscopic details of Kirkland's work: the smells of the brewery, the pivotal moments along the way that stand out to him now, as head brewer.
