Creative agency Special Group has unveiled its first campaign for Carlton Dry after being appointed agency of record for the beer brand by Carlton & United Breweries (CUB).

After a competitive pitch in December 2017, Special Group have joined the CUB roster as Carlton Dry’s agency of record.

The new brand campaign, ‘Be Like The Beer’, is the first CUB work from Special Group and launches this week via multiple channels including TV, cinema, social and digital.

The campaign strategically positions Carlton Dry as a unisex beer option, and also introduces the notion of ‘uncomplicated’ as a descriptor of easy-drinking, smooth lagers.

Julian Schreiber, executive creative director and partner at Special Group, said: “Carlton Dry has always strived to be an uncomplicated beer for a complicated world.

“So, it made sense to let the beer itself be the voice of reason and point out what’s happening all around us. If you think about it, beers have probably seen it all.”

Tom Martin, ECD and partner at Special Group, added: “‘Be like the Beer’ came from the simple insight that being uncomplicated like the taste of Carlton Dry is something to actually aspire to.

“It immediately positioned Dry as the kind of beer we’d want more of as we find ourselves overwhelmed by things that used to be no-brainers”

Special Group managing director and partner Cade Heyde said: “We are incredibly proud to have earned a place on CUB’s roster and to work with such an iconic family of brands.

“This is a business that’s been responsible for some of Australia’s best advertising, and we only hope to add to that already impressive legacy.”

Hayden Turner, senior marketing manager at Carlton Dry, said: “When we talk to our consumers, they tell us that Carlton Dry is the most easy-drinking beer on the market, super-refreshing with an uncomplicated taste profile, and that’s why they love it.

“The Special Group have uncovered the magic that sits behind this truth and we are very excited to see it hit the market”.
