Through the mists of time emerges a lost national treasure, an iconic brew that once filled the proverbial belly of the nation.
“After a few decades absent from the shelves the legendary Kiwi Lager, complete with the original retro logo and the famous green and gold cans, is now back and ready for a return to greatness.
“Through the mists of time emerges a lost national treasure, an iconic brew that once filled the proverbial belly of the nation.”
“The launch campaign was the disparity between the beer’s greatness, and the budget: We’re really excited about bringing this iconic Kiwi beer back, but when you’re bringing a budget beer to market, you unfortunately don’t have a lot of money left over for billboards.”
“But, we thought, who needs billboards when you have garden sheds, hay bales, and pie tops to tell the nation of your return?
“With this campaign we’re asking the fair people of New Zealand to offer up anything they own, for us to brand, to spread the news of Kiwi Lagers return,” says Forrest.
