"We recognized that the social lives and beer-drinking occasions of the Michelob ULTRA consumer extend beyond gathering at the bar or at home with friends," said Azania Andrews, vice president, Michelob ULTRA. "Communities forming around fitness activities represent a new type of socializing. 'Our Bar' emphasizes that beer is a part of this new world, grounded in celebrating accomplishments."
In addition to using everyday people in the ad, the brand also brought its commitment to active lifestyles to life this week by hosting the Live ULTRA Pull-Up Challenge in Atlanta and Boston. Men and women were invited on Thursday, February 2, to prove their physical fitness and complete as many pull-ups as they could in 95 seconds – the same number of low calories found in a Michelob ULTRA. The winners from each market are being provided with a VIP trip to Houston for Super Bowl LI.
