Coors is celebrating the launch of Coors Light by running a show called Brad & Dan's Beer Enlightenment - a combination of comedy, music and live experiments explaining what is in beer, how it is made and what makes it taste the way it does. The show premiered last week in Hoxton, London.
Grolsch has designed a new range of branded glassware for the off-trade, which it is promoting with an on-pack offer and an ad campaign in the trade press. The pint and half-pint glasses are embossed in the same way as the new 30cl Grolsch bottle.
