The Beverage Alcohol Media Report: Q1 2016
The Super Bowl, is one of the biggest events of the first-quarter of every year. It’s an especially big event for parties and beverage alcohol (Bev Al) companies. And perceptions and participation around the game continue to evolve and influence how consumers and sponsors treat this event.
With the Super Bowl not too far in our rearview mirror and the start of a new football season about to kick off, this report examines consumer and sponsor engagement with the big game. We offer thoughts around:
- Is the Super Bowl more than just beer?
- The women fan base – Are they driving change?
- Super Bowl commercials – Just how important are they?
Beyond the big game, we also highlight the top Bev Al television ads from first-quarter 2016 and provide an updated look on how LDA consumers are engaging with media content that has a specific focus on generation and ethnicity.
