GOLDEN, Colo., April 11, 2007Ã¢â‚¬â€œ As temperatures rise and summer approaches, Coors Brewing Company is announcing its latest product innovations designed to meet adult consumersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ desire for cold, refreshing beer. Super Cold Draft and the Cold Activated Bottle are just two in a long line of Coors Light product innovations, and are designed to deliver Coors Light in the coldest, most refreshing way across a variety of beer drinking occasions.
These innovations work for multiple types of retail environments as well as the way in which adult consumers choose to enjoy a Coors Light. Whether itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the Cold Activated Bottle for a summer barbecue or an ice cold beer served from a Coors Light Super Cold Draft system, Coors Light will keep adult consumers refreshed all summer long.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Coors Light is the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most refreshing beer and this round of innovations deliver on our Rocky Mountain heritage while addressing consumersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ desire for the coldest, most refreshing beer,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Andy England, chief marketing officer, Coors Brewing Company. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our latest innovations continue to raise the bar by delivering on our promise to provide the worldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s most refreshing beer no matter where our consumers decide to enjoy a cold Coors Light.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Cold is one of the most important considerations when consumers order a premium light beer. To provide the coldest, most refreshing draft beer, the Coors Light Super Cold Draft system will be available nationwide this year. The first pouring system of its kind in the United States, Super Cold Draft pours Coors Light at a temperature below freezing. Coors Light Super Cold Draft is dispensed from a unique bar top presence Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a mountain draft tower that forms an outer layer of real ice.
According to Coors Light research, consumers want to know when their beer is cold enough to drink. To meet that need, Coors Light is introducing the Cold Activated Bottle, which features mountains on the label in Thermochromatic ink that turns blue when Coors Light has been chilled to the perfect temperature for ice cold refreshment. The Cold Activated Bottle will be available on all 12-ounce Coors Light and Coors bottles at participating bars, restaurants, grocery, convenience stores and liquor stores this May.
In addition to these innovations, Coors Light is highlighting three of its most popular packaging enhancements Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the Coors Light Plastic Bottle Cooler Box, the industry’s first ice-ready bottle package, and the Frost Brew Liner with the Wide Mouth Can. The Wide Mouth Can ensures a smoother drinking experience from Coors Light and Coors cans. In addition, every Coors Light and Coors can features a Frost Brew Liner, tinted blue so consumers know itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s locking in that refreshing Frost Brewed taste.
Coors Light will support these innovations and packaging enhancements with a series of television ads that show adult consumers enjoying the benefits of these new products in a humorous way. They will also be supported with a full marketing campaign, including online, radio and out-of-home throughout the summer.
