Over Labor Day, the hard seltzer brand White Claw had its single biggest growth week of the year, according to brand tracking data from Morning Consult.
Morning Consult Brand Intelligence, which tracks consumer perceptions of over 3,000 brands on a daily basis, found that by the end of the weekend, nearly one in five adults consumers said they were considering purchasing from White Claw, a seven-point jump from the beginning of the week.
Highlights of the report
Brand ID Doubles In 2019: Morning Consult brand tracking data finds the share of consumers who are familiar with White Claw has doubled this year, with the bulk of the growth coming in just the last few months.
So Has Purchasing Considerations: This growth in brand ID has been accompanied with a proportional rise in purchasing consideration. Among 21-29 year-olds, that growth has been particularly pronounced, jumping from 12 percent to 24 percent in less than a year.
For context, White Claw’s purchasing consideration levels are now equal to Sierra Nevada, the third largest craft beer maker in the country.
Along with performing well with younger adults, White Claw also fares slightly better with urban and suburban Americans than rural ones. There is no difference in purchasing consideration between men and women – both sit at 14 percent.
Truly, which is also tracked in Brand Intelligence, has experienced relatively similar growth, although purchasing consideration lags slightly behind White Claw.
