CHEERS: Bar staff from The Chekkers Inn in Larne, The Quays Bar in Portrush, The Rusty Saddle in Belfast, The Ashburn Hotel in Lurgan, and The Derg Arms in Castlederg have been announced as winners of a massive £10,000 competition organised by Coors Light to win a dream holiday for themselves in 2019.

NORTHERN Ireland’s best-selling bottled beer* Coors Light has swept away the January blues for five lucky NI bar staff, who have been announced as the winners of a massive £10,000 ‘experiential’ competition organised by the Rocky Mountains beer company.

The winners, who are, Simon Crawley from The Quays Bar in Portrush, Paul McConaghy from The Ashburn Hotel in Lurgan, Paul Donnelly from Chekkers Inn in Larne, Michael Mckeown from The Rusty Saddle in Belfast, and Olga Walls from The Derg Arms in Castlederg have each won a dream holiday for themselves to enjoy in 2019.

The competition was part of a huge £300,000 campaign to celebrate a record year for Coors Light in Northern Ireland and was supported by an extensive out of home advertising campaign, online and social media engagement, bespoke PR support, and lots of ‘on the ground’ activity.

Last year figures showed that more than one in every three* bottles of beer sold in Northern Ireland on-trade was a Coors Light, with the brand winning over 38% value share of the market, and available in a staggering 97% of bars across the province.

Each lucky winner was chosen by their ability to engage with their customers and reinforce the idea that nothing is more refreshing than a Coors Light, highlighting the unique thermochromic technology which ensures a perfect serve every time by turning the Rockies blue when the beer hits optimum temperature.

Speaking about the win, Simon Crawley from The Quays Bar, Portrush, said:

“I’m over the moon to have won it. Usually when you enter something like this, you never really expect to win, but it has been such a great surprise and I’d like to say a big thank you to Coors Light for making it all happen.”

Olga Walls, from The Derg Arms in Castlederg said: “It such a shock to have won! We always put a real focus on training our team to proactively promote our products to customers, and go that extra mile, so it’s brilliant to see that being recognised. I’m so glad to have been chosen as a winner and it’s great to be doing it for Tyrone!”

Paul McConaghy, from The Ashburn Hotel in Lurgan, added: “I’d just like to take the opportunity to thank Coors Light for such a brilliant surprise. Their team has always given us excellent support when it comes to running promotions or training staff in their product line. I’m delighted to have won!”
