New Belgium Brewing launched its 2014 Pairs Well with People summer campaign, which highlights the Fat Tire Experience. The campaign has a mix of TV spots, digital videos, hidden talent discovery, story sharing and weekly prizes. The campaign runs now through Labor Day.
The TV spots celebrate bicycling’s “underground” scenes from bike jousting to junkyard cyclocross racing and even Fat Tire-loving Chopaderos with surprises of their own. To see the spots, visit the New Belgium Brewing Fat Tire Experience website.
“This year’s Pairs Well with People really showcases summertime communal fun and the bike communities who have long championed Fat Tire,” said Melyssa Mead, creative director at New Belgium Brewing. “They may live right at the edges of mainstream bike culture, but they’re also really innovative risk takers you’ll remember. Through our site and social channels, we’re inviting everyone to experience unconventional bike tales, to meet up with us at summer events and to take advantage of the many opportunities to win.”
