Heineken Uses Facebook For Next Bottle Design

Heineken Bottle Contest

To help celebrate their 140th anniversary, Heineken wants to know what the bottle of the future will look like, and is asking their Facebook fans to create a design “that symbolizes how people around the world will connect in the next 140 years”.

Since each design will cover half the bottle, entrants must connect with another designer in the gallery to submit their entry as a pair.

The winning design will be printed on an exclusive 140th anniversary Limited Edition pack, on sale in December of 2012.

Head on over to Heineken’s Facebook Page for more details.

Natty Light Is The First Beer In Space

First Beer In Space

On November 18, 2011, Natty Light did what no beer had done before, and officially became The First Beer In Space. (Or at least the first beer to an area of Space that Natty Light later named the ‘Nattmosphere’.)

The project began when Danny and Rich, two of Natty Light’s Facebook Fans, contacted the company and said they wanted to take Natty into space.

Natty said “Go for it!” and pledged to support their efforts on the Facebook Page, including a contest to name the craft, which came to be known as the Aluminum Fullcan.

The Aluminum Fullcan was made of a styrofoam cooler that carried a full beer on board, a second, empty can on the outside, a GPS tracking device, and an HD camera, all lifted into space by a giant weather balloon.

The flight itself lasted for more than 2 hours, reaching a height of 90,000+ feet, and traveling more than 60 miles away from the original launch site. In fact, it traveled so far, and landed in an area that had such poor GPS reception, that it took Danny and Rich another 2 hours just to locate the craft and recover the camera.

By embracing an out of this world idea and turning it into a reality, Natty Light proved that it doesn’t take a huge budget to do something cool online that gets fans excited, and stands out from the crowd.
