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!”

From Kenya to Canada: The Story of Kenya’s Only Ice Hockey Team



In Kenya, there is only one ice hockey team, and they have nobody to play against. Every Wednesday and Sunday, the Kenya Ice Lions take to the first-ever ice rink in East and Central Africa: a 1,400-square-metre rink at the Panari Sky Center Hotel in Nairobi, Kenya. Located next to Nairobi National Park, is where the Ice Lions take to the rink and play the game they love.

In Canada, it is sometimes taken for granted that Canadians can always find someone to grab a stick, find some ice and play a game. Tim Hortons heard the story about the Kenya Ice Lions and decided to share our love of the game by bringing them to the birthplace of hockey.

“In Canada - and as a company - Hockey is part of our DNA,” says Jorge Zaidan, Head of Marketing, Tim Hortons Canada. “We are so inspired by the story of the Lions. Despite having no other teams to play against, the players on the Kenya Ice Lions’ passion for the game is unwavering. Their shared passion and love of the game knows no borders.”

Moved by their love for Canada’s favourite sport, Tim Hortons flew 12 members of the senior Ice Lions team to Canada to have the opportunity to finally play their first game ever against another team. After dressing in brand new CCM hockey equipment and personalized jerseys, they discovered they were in for an even bigger surprise: hockey superstars Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon were joining them on the ice as teammates.

“I was honoured to be able to join the Ice Lions as they played their first game against another team,” said Sidney Crosby, captain of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins. “One of the things I love about hockey is how it’s able to reach so many people from so many countries around the world and bring them together.”

“While we played alongside the Ice Lions for their first game, we know it won’t be their last,” said Colorado Avalanche star, Nathan MacKinnon. “The team’s genuine passion and excitement for hockey is contagious – they were amazing teammates and it was great to play with them.”

“It is a dream to not only have the chance to play in Canada, but to play – for the first time – in full gear alongside two of the greatest players of the game,” says Benard Azegere, captain of the Kenya Ice Lions.“ When we first started playing in Kenya, we didn’t even have full equipment, but now not only do we have that, we can say we’ve played a real game with some All-Star teammates.”

Tim Hortons made a donation to Kenya’s Youth Hockey League to help ensure that the Ice Lions’ passion for the sport lives on for the next generation. To see the full video of the Kenya Ice Lions hockey game with Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon, please visit https://youtu.be/CqYfhY5gVl8.
