Reached to the 4th campaign through OBR (Romanian Beer Organization and also Romanian acronym for A Beer – O BeRe – n.r), this autumn we want to bring a smile on faces of those that understand football is a passion that consumes us all, no matter the age or place we are at. And, as Bergenier is “Romanian football beer”, it will always be close to football fans, no matter the score on the game board. To make smiles even bigger, the app developed on Facebook especially for Romanian League 1 will bring to them, every week, real supporter awards. All they need to do is to drink a Bergenbier

With the tone already characteristic to men’s beer, the TV add shows some of them living the passion for football as they know the best. The colorful language was replaced with funny euphemisms, so the ad won’t be censored but keep the taste for the Romanian man, that sees himself in funny scenes
