From Kicky Beverage Cans to Bluetooth Beer Boxes

 - Oct 17, 2014
Unexpected partnerships often yield the best results, and this is definitely true when it comes to boozy brand collaborations.

These collaborations can happen across many different fields, from fashion to technology. Take, for instance, the Heineken x Lowdi x Ed Banger speaker box. The box, which features a built-in speaker, contains a specially-designed bottle of Heineken by Ed Banger for the brand's 140 anniversary. This collaboration is an inventive way to sell not only beer, but an entire entertainment system -- because isn't that what drinking beer is really all about?

Another example is Stella Artois: the brand opened up a pop-up shop in collaboration with men's retailer Gostyle, just in time for father's day! Guests could peruse merchandise while enjoying a beer tasting and snacks.
