Grolsch launches a new way of drinking lager in Romania with 'The Jar’.

Grolsch has recently launched a new creative way of drinking beer in Romania – ‘The Jar’.

The launch of ‘The Jar’ is well-timed, building on the popularity of mason-jar presentation in trendy bars and cafes. ‘The Jar’ elevates Grolsch’s beer to a premium, craft drinking experience for consumers.

Catherine O’Connor, senior analyst at Canadean predicts success for the new packaging: “We can see consumers in other markets clamoring to get their hands on this novel design.”

According to Canadean, consumers are more likely to retain and re-use innovative product packaging like ‘The Jar’, adopting the stylish, unique design into their glassware.


Such designs also drive repeat purchases and bulk-buys as consumers look to collect a set for their cupboards.

O’Connor says: “Grolsch’s ‘The Jar’ will boost brand loyalty long-term. Consumers feel more connected to brands that have a presence in their home, with novel branded glassware acting as a memory aid and thirst generator.”

Canadean’s data shows that lager drinkers are on the lookout for new experiences, with this desire prompting almost 14 per cent of consumption in the lager market.

Products that can offer something unique to consumers will experience success, whether this is by flavor innovation or novel packaging.

O’Connor adds:  “There is a real growth opportunity for brands which can offer consumers a drink that is also a conversation starter. With consumers spending US $40 billion a year on beer that offers new experiences, the market is ripe to target.”
