Thirst for learning

Editor News Make a Comment

Barnes Catmur & Friends have devised a new print/online/outdoor campaign for Boundary Road Brewery. The campaign was based on years of study in pubs all over New Zealand, which up till now had been rather aimless.

So the agency set out to legitimise all this graft by providing a degree, while at the same time communicating to the public what a diverse range of beers emerge from the Boundary Road Brewery.

The brewer believes that university is generally a waste of the student’s time and the public’s money, not to mention the wanton destruction of sofas.

So to get a degree without having to pretend to be interested in subjects greyer than an accountant’s underpants Boundary Road Brewery have introduced “Brewniversity” – NZ’s first online seat of learning dedicated entirely to the study of beer.

This is a campaign where outdoor, online and print executions direct beer enthusiasts to where they can test their knowledge of all things beer in an effort to gain suitable academic qualifications.

“Why waste three years of university when you can waste five minutes on our website,” says Boundary Road marketing general manager Michael Edmonds.

“This is a message that many will have heard too late. Enrol now, before it’s too late.”
