Mac's pushes the craft connection, Speight's looks to the past

There's been plenty of chat about craft beer recently, with the 'craft beer you can actually drink' campaign for Lion's new Crafty Beggars range—and what some see as its duplicitous brand wank—ruffling a few feathers. Lion-owned Mac's also sits in the 'popular craft' category and it's also aiming to firm up its association with the term through its Craft Collective promotion.

Mac’s goes seasonal as it gets set to blow out the 30th birthday candles

Just as we celebrate birthday milestones by perusing through old and embarrassing photos of ourselves, Mac’s Brewery is likewise harking back to the past as it gets set to celebrate its 30th birthday in November with a touch of 80s.

Help Wellington in its time of need, quench thirst with Mac's Hop Rocker

As we've discussed before on StopPress, town branding, despite the best of civic intentions and dreams of immense cut-through with cheesy, pun-laden slogans, generally has an element of desperation and truth-stretching to it. And the proposed Wellywood sign can most definitely be placed in that category. Of course, there have been numerous alternative suggestions and a few websites (here and here) set up where alternative suggestions can be made (there's now even a campaign by Moa beer that is, fairly irresponsibly, promoting willful damage when the sign goes up in exchange for a bounty). But everyone knows the hoi polloi simply don't have the creative cajones required to help Wellington in its time of need. So, post your idea for a more appropriate/inappropriate sign on the hill and the two best efforts will get a 12 pack of the pilsener member of the Mac's family, Hop Rocker, which is sporting some flash new packaging and has recently graduated to the dozen.

The Year in Review: Alex Erasmus

He's one of the main brains behind Social Media Junction, he co-founded Media Mingle, Social Media Club Auckland and the marketing-related Twitter discussion #markchat, and he's one of those rare creatures, a man working in PR.
