Heineken Short Film Reveals Groundbreaking Discovery Behind Lager Recipe for New H41 Beer



Heineken has launched a short film to unveil its revolutionary discovery for lager brewing that has resulted in new ‘wild lager’ beer brand - H41. Shot in Patagonia by Emmy-award-winning production company, Evolve Studio, ‘A Wild Lager Story’, reveals how the discovery of a new yeast strain, has led to the creation of a lager recipe that would have previously been impossible.

The three-minute 44-second film, delves into the story behind the discovery, a happy accident by Microbiologist, Diego Libkind. When walking the stunning landscape of a Patagonia national park, Libkind encountered a form of fungi that he didn’t recognise. Analysing the element back in his lab, he realised that it was a little-known and previously undiscovered form of wild yeast – the ‘mother’ to all lager yeast. The film follows Heineken Global Master Brewer, Willen Van Waesberghe, and Diego Libkind as they come together in South America. They retrace the yeast’s discovery and use it to brew a completely new tasting lager like no other.

To craft the film, Heineken enlisted Emmy-award winning production and post production company Evolve Studios. The content company shot, edited and finished the brand film.

After partnering for the project, National Geographic and Heineken brought Evolve Studios on board. The content company worked collaboratively with the brands to devise the creative approach and produce the film.
Capturing the moments between those behind discovering and brewing the groundbreaking beverage presented some challenges, says Joel Edwards, Co-Founder at Evolve Studios: “At the time of shooting, the characters were on a press tour. This meant that during the three days of shooting we had a somewhat limited window of access to them. We had to strategically choose the moments to pull them away and film them whilst capturing the right scenes for the story. It was tricky, but we got what we needed!”

Dairy Famers of Canada Takes An Honest Approach in Latest Campaign by DDB Canada


To better inform millennials about Canadian dairy and help clear up misconceptions they may have, Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC), has launched a new campaign that takes an honest, candid approach to share truths about Canadian dairy products and the industry.

Developed by DDB Canada’s Toronto office the national campaign, “Honest. Canadian. Dairy.” reminds millennials of the positive aspects of Canadian dairy to help raise the day-to-day relevance of dairy products in millennials minds.

“There’s an opportunity to shift and change millennials perceptions about dairy products,” says Lucie Bérubé, acting director, marketing, DFC. “Canadian dairy products are considered a wholesome and natural source of nutrition by millennials; but this group shows some reluctance, versus older Canadians, to consume dairy products on a regular basis. The new campaign sets out to clarify misconceptions millennials may have.”

Accentuating both functional and emotional benefits associated with increasing usage of Canadian dairy, both English and French creative executions introduce dairy farmer characters, who share facts such as: there are no artificial growth hormones in milk that is produced in Canada, most Canadian dairy farms are family-run and span generations of dairy farmers; and most farmers keep under 100 cows.

“We wanted to be upfront with Canadians about what’s true and what’s not when it comes to Canadian dairy farming,” says Craig Ferguson, creative director, DDB Canada Toronto. “That carried over to the advertising. It felt natural to be upfront about the fact our ads were ads.”

Campaign creative includes television, social videos, out-of-home placements and Spotify audio advertising. The campaign launched at the end of January runs until March 2019 with Initiative responsible for the media strategy and buy.
