Greene King, Leading Pub Retailer and Brewer, Helping the British to Relive the Greatest Sporting Moments of all Times
How? First, a quick visualisation, as described below.
A small, cosy pub. Sports events. Crowded and noisy, packed with people wearing their team’s colours.
A glass of fine beer fits perfectly into this scenery, doesn’t it?
The idea was relatively straightforward. The packaging for the Brewer’s flagship beer was to detail 10 of the most well-known and memorable British sporting events, including England winning the 1966 Football World Cup, and Team GB’s cyclists winning eight gold medals at the Rio Olympics. The Brewer will release 250,000 limited edition “Great Sporting Moments” bottles and over £50,000 worth of prizes to mark the occasion, giving fans the opportunity to relive these legendary sporting moments. Every bottle offers the chance to win a prize and the prizes themselves are allocated and linked to winning codes printed on the labels. How exactly is this realised and what is the technology behind it?
Berkshire’s digital sleeves contained variable data including a unique number
Why did they choose Berkshire’s Digital Sleeves to deliver this project for Green King’s IPA? The answer is simple, because of the digital printing solutions offered with the HP Indigo digital press. The high quality, customisation and personalisation with unique variable data printing, diverse versioning, and variable graphics enabled Berkshire labels to deliver great digital sleeves within the Great Sporting Moments Limited Edition. Paul Roscoe, Berkshire’s MD admitted that this was a very exciting project for everyone involved.

Summing up in figures, once again:
- 250,000 personalised labels
- 40 designs
- The project went to print within 5 days from receiving the artwork
- Reliving legendary British sporting moments across the last 60 years
In addition to labels stuck on tins, we also added personalised cards – each beneficiary received a personal card with the signatures of the entire Crew.
During our continued collaboration with Perun Brewery we had the pleasure of creating a limited edition of self-adhesive labels for Sol Invictus beer.
The concept was quite simple: to create shrink sleeve labels displaying images of people from various continents and unique graphical elements.
