Guinness: Believer

Event Videos

Introduction

Believer has always been about the purity and greatness of Arthur Guinness' famed Irish stout. This video served as the introduction to consumers at the event, guiding them on a journey across the world and into the great mind of the visionary brewer.

Ingredients


Continuing the theme of purity, this video was created to guide consumers through the beer's creation using the only four ingredients that Guinness stout has ever known: water, barley, hops and yeast.

________________________

Nitrogenation


A major reason why Guinness stands apart from other beers lies in it's bubbles. Guinness is not carbonated, it's nitrogenated. Nitrogen bubbles are 1/3 the size of carbon bubbles, giving the stout it's famous smoothness and velvety head.

Finale

Client Presentation

Challenge
The Guinness Believer consumer mentoring program hasn’t been updated in years. It’s past successes need to be brought into the 21st century to connect with more tech-savvy, modern consumers.

Solution
Create a fully-immersive, interactive event that takes consumers through the entire life cycle of Guinness. By utilizing the metaphor of a physical trip to Ireland, we can guide them through each step in the creation of the world’s greatest stout.

Concept
Virtual Trip To Ireland

Activation
Large scale HD screens featuring picturesque views of Ireland will give consumers a virtual sense of travel. The videos that tell the story of the creation of Guinness simultaneously bring the audience along on a ride across the Atlantic, firing up the crowd in the process. A custom musical score in multiple current styles brings the brand into modern times.

A young MC with a background in stand-up comedy gives youth to the brand while offering professional entertainment. And a large crew of bartenders and servers keep the crowd in the action with free pints and food.
