The Grifter Brewing Co., Marrickville

Dogs, beer, a game of spot the barman, and a human pyramid. Who said being a Google Street View photographer was boring? The Grifter Brewing Co. lives up to its hard-working, fun-loving reputation with a Google Street View tour that’s…a little different.

We’ve said it before. And we’re saying it again. Being a Google Trusted Street View Photographer in Sydney is a great job. And clients like The Grifter Brewing Co. make it even better.

Not only do they make a great range of beers (we haven’t tried all of them yet, but the pilsner is very drinkable), but they also run a tasting bar out of their brewery in Marrickville. And we love it. Long tables that can accommodate big parties, high warehouse ceilings, pool table, and (best of all) dogs are welcome.

Did we mention the beer? We really should mention the beer. Glenn, Trent & Matt have put a lot of work into their brews, and one visit isn’t enough to try them all, so it’s good that the venue is a place you’ll want to go bact to. Thanks to the easy-going and enthusiastic staff, there’s a really relaxed vibe here – you can be the guy on the laptop at the bar, or you can grab your mates and have a beer and a game of pool at the end of the day. No dress code. No judgment. Your call.

Perhaps its not surprising, then, that the customers here weren’t just willing to be in the photos – some of them were really enthusiastic. Even to the point of creating a human pyramid when they found out that this tour was going to be on Google Street View for everyone to see. If you look hard enough, you’ll also find bar staff appearing in somewhat unexpected places.

“YOU THERE MEDIA HAVE BEEN AN EXCELLENT COMPANY TO DEAL WITH FOR OUR VIRTUAL TOUR OF OUR BREWERY/TASTING BAR. THE PHOTOS ARE TOP QUALITY…COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR BETTER SERVICE!”

We’d also point out that we took care to ensure that everyone was comfortable with what was going on – Street View virtual tours of empty venues are much easier to create but they can be cold and unwelcoming – so we like to include customers where possible. And that sometimes means that we need to be respectful of people’s need for privacy, so we’ll blur out the faces of people who request it.

We’d just like to say thanks to the customers, crew, and management at The Grifter Brewing Co. They made us feel welcome, and were really accommodating while we shot the Google Street View tour. And Glenn had some kind words to say about us, too.

Yep. We really love what we do.

If you’re a small business looking to get a head start on immersive content marketing, our One-shot 360 deal is unbeatable value – you can get it right now for just $199+GST. No ongoing costs, just one and done.

Having a 360 internal view makes you stand out, and connects your business to your potential customers in a way that’s hard to ignore.

We’ll swing by, have a chat, take a few shots and let you pick your favourite. Then we’ll take it away and process it (stitch, de-noise, HDR, ghost removal, and blur if required), before attaching it to your Google Maps business listing. The shoot can take as little as half an hour, and we make every effort to avoid disruption to your business.

If your business is a multi-room location, or you want a mix of indoor and outdoor photography, then our SMB 360 or Custom 360 virtual tour plans might be a better fit.

And if you want to be really creative, we can talk about our Live 360, timelapse and video options. They’re pretty special.

Each platform has its merits, and we’ll be happy to discuss them with you so that you can make an informed choice about which suits your needs best. And if you have something specific in mind, and can’t see it in the pricing table, please get in touch. We’d love to hear what you’ve got lined up.
