Austin Beerworks creates 99-pack for Peacemaker Anytime Ale cans (video)

BeerPulse - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 20:45

News Wire: 

Austin, TX – Austin Beerworks partnered with Helms Workshop to christen their award-winning Peacemaker with a new name: Anytime Ale. To add to the celebration, Peacemaker Anytime Ale will be available in the world’s first-ever 99-Pack for only $99.99.

“We wanted to launch the newly-named Peacemaker with our first official advertising campaign. While brainstorming with Helms Workshop – who do our stellar branding – we came up with the strategy that Anytime is a good time for a Peacemaker,” says Michael Graham, cofounder of Austin Beerworks.

When listing Peacemaker-appropriate occasions, the Helms team quickly came up with a ton. That sparked an idea – as a beer that is enjoyed anytime, it’s best to have more than a few on-hand. Continues Graham, “This inspired us to create the world’s first and only 99-Pack. What started out as a joke became very real when we realized how much people love the idea of 99 beers for $99.99!”

Helms Workshop set to work with Beef & Pie Productions and Source Pixel Foundry on developing a ridiculous launch video and anytimeale.com, a site for fans to share and tag their Anytime moments. The finished product landed on the front page of Reddit – even before the official launch.

To get the word out about Peacemaker Anytime Ale’s 99-Pack, Helms Workshop and Austin Beerworks are bolstering a full outdoor and print campaign with social media and word-of-mouth. Tagging online posts with #AnytimeAle and following Austin Beerworks’ Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages is the only way to find out where these elusive packages are sold.

The Anytime Ale 99-Packs will be available in stores later this week. For complete details, please visit http://anytimeale.com.

Knuckle Sandwich DIPA is our rendition of the West-Coast Style Double IPA, bursting with a double dose of American hops, backed by a rich layer of malt to give it that body and smooth mouthfeel.

Brewed originally in 2010, we hit our loyal customers right between the eyes with one of the most delicious beers brewed in all of Orange County. We brew this big bold beer as often as we can, but the minute we are out, the biggest question asked of us is when it will be back. Owner and Head Brewer Aaron Barkenhagen went back in his brewer’s notebook and made some subtle t to bring the beer closer to it’s small batch days on Richman Ave. After sampling this from the brite tank, we are quite amazed at how spot on this batch of Knuckle has turned out.
