BeerPulse - Tue, 02/13/2018 - 14:05

(Chicago, IL) – The Chicago-based Siebel Institute of Technology announces the appointment of Christian von der Heide to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer.

With a heritage of providing training and education services to the brewing industry dating back to 1872, the Siebel Institute is the oldest brewing school in North America. The Siebel Institute has been instrumental in the technical training and education of some of the most recognized names in brewing, contributing to the success of many notable brewing companies.

In addition to a wide range of class-based programs delivered at its Chicago and satellite campuses, the Siebel Institute has, in conjunction with its Munich-based partner Doemens Institute, developed the concept of the World Brewing Academy (WBA), a unique dual-continent education and training program incorporating both classroom and web-based education combined with extensive ‘hands on’ practical experience, from malting through to final pack. The WBA’s Master Brewer program is widely recognized as the one of the most sought-after credentials for professional brewers.

As the global brewing industry continues to change at a rapid pace, the Siebel Institute recognises the need to identify and develop the resources and programs required to meet the training and education needs of an ever-evolving global brewing industry, and is pleased to announce the appointment of Christian von der Heide to lead the Siebel Institute through its next phase of development.

Christian is a graduate of Weihenstephan and is a master brewer and maltster by profession, and has completed executive studies at INSEAD and The Wharton School. Christian’s brewing brand pedigree ranges from Augustiner Beer in Munich to Guinness in Dublin and Tusker in East Africa, where he was also instrumental in supporting water conservation efforts and in aiding the development of local raw materials for use in beer production. Christian is a Past President of the European Brewery Convention and has held senior positions in brewing, technology development, R&D, innovation and supply chain management at a number of entrepreneurial enterprises and global beverage companies. Christian is engaged in a variety of advisory and board roles, coaching fast-growing craft brands to strive for excellence.

‘We are delighted to have Christian join the Siebel Institute team at this very exciting time in the history of the Institute,’ said Brent Jordan, President of Lallemand Brewing. ‘With his passion for brewing, his constant striving for excellence and his tremendous breadth of experience in the industry Christian will be instrumental in furthering the aims of The Siebel Institute to become recognized as the leading global player in brewing education and training.’

Christian von der Heide, incoming President and CEO of Siebel Institute, commented that he is ‘thrilled and honored to lead the Siebel Institute legacy to its next evolution with a strong team, outstanding faculty and vision.’

Nauti Rosé is a refreshing and delightful interpretation of a sparking rosé wine.

It has transcended the wine category and has become a cultural icon of fun” said Christian McMahan, President of Craft Cocktail Company. “We wanted to offer a new, convenient alternative for rosé drinkers to extend those occasions where they can enjoy the flavor of rosé.”

“In our research we noticed that the rosé wine and hard seltzer drinker were very alike, so we figured, why make them choose.” McMahan concluded. “Our innovation team has been working on the project for several months now to create the perfect rosé flavor and we could not be more pleased with the final result”

Now you can drink “rosé all-day” Nauti style.

Nauti Rosé will be released in 6-packs of 12oz. cans mid-March and will be added to Nauti Seltzer Party Pack shortly after. Nauti Seltzer Rosé is 5% ABV premium malt beverage that contains natural flavors.

Bud Light marketing team lays out “Brewed Deep in the Heart” campaign aimed at Texas drinkers

BeerPulse - Tue, 02/13/2018 - 13:16

Celebrate Texan Roots in New Regional Campaign USA

Texas’ Favorite Light Lager Partners with Josh Abbott Band and Siggno to Honor 30 Plus Years of Brewing in the Lonestar State

(Houston, TX) – Today, Bud Light announced a new campaign aimed at going big in Texas in 2018 with multi-faceted programming across the Lonestar state. After launching a successful regional program in 2017, the brand will take its “Brewed Deep in the Heart” campaign to the next level with an ongoing music partnership with Texas-native musicians Siggno and Josh Abbott Band.

The creative campaign, which encompasses out-of-home, TV, digital, and radio commercials in both English and Spanish, along with special edition Texas packaging featuring the Texas Lonestar and a cutout of the state on the tab. A new Texas-specific commercial featuring Houston Brewery employee Hannah Kight, “Stamping Iron” will debut regionally on February 12 and additional TV creative will be launched later in 2018. Additionally, the Texan-pride tabs will feature a cutout of the state on all Texas-edition packaging.

“We have been brewing Bud Light in Texas for over 30 years, so today I’m proud to announce the new partners and creative we have lined up for 2018,” said Andy Goeler, Vice President, Marketing Bud Light. “Texas has always been an important market to our business, and Josh Abbott Band and Siggno are true Texas musicians and are the perfect addition to our programming in the state. We are excited to activate with them in 2018.”

In celebration of its Texan roots, the brand enlisted the help of Josh Abbott Band to re-record the iconic Texan song, “Deep in the Heart of Texas”. The track will be performed on the multi-city Josh Abbott Band tour statewide, and will be featured in one of Bud Light’s new Texas-focused commercials. Larger music programming in the region will fuel fan engagement, as Bud Light will be the sponsor for Josh Abbott Band ‘Brewed Deep in the Heart’ regional tour, and Siggno’s 100-show “Monster Tour” tour into spring 2018.

“We want our fans to have the best experience at all of our shows, whether singing along, having a few cold beers, or just enjoying our music with friends,” said Josh Abbott. “When we got the news that Bud Light was going big in Texas in 2018 we were excited to join forces and knew we had to be a part of it. ‘Deep in the Heart of Texas’ is such an iconic song that everyone knows in the state and as proud Texans, we are thrilled to be able to record our version of it and that it will be used as part of Bud Light’s campaign.”

Siggno’s 100-city tour will kick-off in February, and is sponsored by Bud Light. “Texas is our home and our Texan fans have inspired our music for nearly 20 years. We are so honored to be a part of Bud Light’s ‘Brewed Deep in the Heart’ campaign and look forward to seeing our fans on the road.”

Bud Light’s largest brewery sits in Houston and has for over 35 years, with over 600 Texans brewing the beer every day. To learn more about Bud Light go to www.budlight.com or follow Bud Light on Facebook at Facebook.com/BudLight, on Twitter at @BudLight and on Instagram at @BudLight.
