Introduction

Back in 1988, New Belgium Brewing Company was invented by its two co-founders with a dream to bring delicious Belgium beer to their hometown. Throughout the years, they have become experts in brewing all different sorts of beers in both Colorado and North Carolina. Over time, they started offering their delicious brews online through their website, which eventually led to creating a loyalty program as well, which is what is now known as the Cellar Club. The Cellar Club is an exclusive membership of which lovers of New Belgium brews can have benefits such as ordering beer online, and access to new beers before they hit the public.

The Challenge

Inside of the online shopping experience, New Belgium customers are offered packs of beer which are pre-made on their website. Even though guests can order packs online, they still were not given the freedom to customize these packs by mixing different beers. This sparked something, what if, they thought, we allowed our customers to choose what goes in their packs.

The Platform

Using Optimizely as their platform already in use, we worked alongside the New Belgium team to ensure the entire website stayed cohesive and on brand.  

Approach  

Now when New Belgium customers log in to order their favorite beer, they will already be aware of any state regulations their residing state may have so there is zero confusion as to how much alcohol they can order.  

Then, after being logged in and heading to the new Build Your Own Pack area of the website, they are presented with a grid-like structure that allows guests to add and subtract whatever beer they would like while building their pack. The grid structure gives customers the option to easily interchange whatever beers they would like, without having to add anything to their cart before they are finished with their pack.  

The grid also allows for the pricing of the pack to stay consistent, instead of the price of each individual beer being added to the cart and then configured before checking out. It cuts out any confusion on pricing.

The Results

The Results

New Belgium’s customers are now given an aspect of personalization as if they are standing in a store picking out their favorite beers, all from the comfort of wherever they have access to internet.  

Cheers to that!
