The Brief

Launch Samuel Adams during the Rio Olympics as the craft beer of choice in the UK.

The Challenge

The challenge is to kick start brand consideration, build fame and get the brand talked about.

We want to position Samuel Adams at the front of mind for the audience during the Rio Olympics.

A key problem to overcome is the fact that a recent study has shown more people to associate the wrong brands than the ones actually sponsoring big sporting events. i.e. more people associate Nike with Euro 2016 than official sponsors Carlsberg or McDonald's. Therefore more than ever brands need to find meaningful ways to reach the audience.

The value of sports tournament sponsorship is thrown into question by research showing the brands most associated with Euro games: http://www.campaignlive.co.uk/article/people-associate-nike-euro-2016-official-sponsors-carlsberg-mcdonalds/1395469?bulletin=campaign_brands_bulletin2016 are not necessarily its sponsors


Everyone has dreams and aspires to succeed.

For Millennials times are hard and they just want to live a successful life without compromising their dreams.

Proposition A beer for the modern British drinker: The dreamer, thinker, do-er, maker.The role of Samuel Adams in the consumers lives

Sams Great Dreamers

The Idea: Our aim is to get the nation thinking about their hope and dreams. Through Sam Adams we want to tap into this and help grant the nations dreams one small wish at a time.

Manifesto: Sam Adams wants you to brew your own dreams into a reality.


Dreams can be realityHarness the mood of the nation: The Olympics in general are a time in which people come together and celebrate each other's sporting achievements, collective desire to win and succeed. Feats of athleticism can be very aspirational. The desire to succeed and dream is universal.

AudienceWe know that craft beer is on the rise in the UK and that young urbanites are drinking more craft beer than ever before.

One of the main audiences we want to target are ABC1 18-34 men as we know this is the biggest group of consumers of craft beer in the UK.

This audience is also going to be the most interested in the Rio Olympics. They will be planning on watching and has a genuine interest in the games. This audience crossover will ensure for maximum reach with the channels picked to hit this market.

Quotes from research carried out by Mail Brands Online Survey (internal MOL Email Database & Mail Matters Community) Period: 24th 28th March 2016 with 889 Respondents showed the following results for the above non TGI statements.


2015 was a difficult year for Samuel Adams, with growth slowing significantly in the US as the rest of the craft beer industry has been quickly expanding. We aim to make the UK its next biggest market with this integrated plan. One of the problems is that Samuel Adams has got too big and familiar to be considered an authentic craft by some elitist beer connoisseurs, yet it isnt hefty enough to have the cost advantages of big brewers.*

By educating the market with what Samuel Adams is and offering it as an authentic alternative to other craft beer to be enjoyed during the Olympics and months that follow we can drive awareness and ultimately capture a new consumer for Samuel Adams in the UK.

*Wall Street Journal- Attitudes Towards Craft Alcoholic Drinks, UK February 2016Consumers are likely to become increasingly demanding of brands which claim to be craft ,and the onus is on the brands to ensure that they can provide clear evidence of their craft credentials.** **Mintel- Attitudes Towards Craft Alcoholic Drinks, UK February 2016





Jim Koch is the founder of Boston Beers Samuel Adams and a sixth generation brewer himself who followed his ambition to start a business and brew craft beer

Brewing your own dreams into a reality (Brand loyalty begins with shared values) There is no other beer in the market talking to consumers like thisPosition this beer as the drink for dreamers, thinkers, do-ers, makers. Just like ASOS has launched a talent competition for emerging designers, Sam Adams could champion the everyday dreamer, thinker or creative. Sam Adams could also give away free gallery tickets or design classes as prizes. Helping inspire the next generation of thinkers and dreamers.
