Tiniest Pub

EditorNews Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Tuesday: Emerson’s and DDB New Zealand are today launching the country’s first major activation campaign since March – Tiny Pub. 

DDB ECD Gary Steele said: “With a timely focus on Emerson’s founding ethos – allowing quality time to connect over a cold brew – the pint-sized pub will give Kiwis nationwide the opportunity to enjoy an uninterrupted one-on-one with an old mate.

“Equipped to host a party of two and complete with a tiny dartboard, tiny piano, one bartender and a one item menu, Tiny Pub is one of the smallest pubs in New Zealand’s history.”

Lion craft GM Dave Pearce said: “After the lockdown, Kiwis have realised just how much they’ve missed the simple pleasure of catching up with a friend for a beer.

“We have been craving the joy of uninterrupted face-to-face conversation, it’s uncomplicated and it builds an unhurried environment to properly enjoy a pint of Emerson’s – we wanted to capture that familiar feeling for Kiwis, through Tiny Pub.

“The Tiny Pub has everything you need to enjoy the perfect beer – and nothing more.

“The Tiny Pub has everything you need to enjoy the perfect beer – and nothing more.”

Tiny Pub will be hitting the road today, travelling to nine sites nationwide between Auckland and Dunedin offering bookable 27-minute slots – “the perfect amount of time to fully appreciate an Emerson’s pint”.

Gary Steele said: “Kiwis are reconnecting with a deeper appreciation for social activities that may have been taken for granted in a pre-lockdown world.

“Emerson’s is not for drinking on your own, it’s there as a rewarding excuse to catch up with mates – the Tiny Pub campaign invites New Zealanders to simply take some time out to practice the art of genuine human connection.”

The nationwide tour will be supported by a 2:30 film showcasing two long-lost mates reconnecting with an overdue pint at the pub; there will also be 30”, 15” 6” cutdowns, OOH, social media and PR.
