A personal narrative about beer marketing and in particular, the birth of the Matilda Bay Brewing Co (MBBCo) is presented. Marketing insights are offered: the new becomes old, the old becomes new; markets, brands and strategies are co-created by marketer, customer, competitors and others; strategy- and knowledge-development are emergent as much as they are planned; case studies are an important source of knowledge.
