Hanlons Brewery (formerly O’Hanlons) was bought by new owners who approached Chalk & Ward to help them revive the brand. One part of the puzzle was to build a new website design to help communicate the brewery’s new direction and showcase the refreshed product line on offer. Our solution was to develop a custom site in the CMS ProcessWire. Although Hanlons wanted quite a simple solution to start with, they needed something that would be scalable to grow with the business. We felt ProcessWire offered the simplicity but with enough flexibility to adapt the CMS to more demanding customised needs later on.
The website also needed to work for a range of different users including both consumers and trade, so we designed the front-end to be fully responsive and therefore device agnostic. The site has proved fundamental to the growth of the business as it gives them a professional platform and enhances their credibility.
