Blue Moon’s new campaign, dubbed “Once In a Blue Moon” from DDB Chicago. The #1 craft beer brand is bringing extraordinary experiences to the everyday consumer with its new campaign, which features two spots that will go live later this month. The ads showcase Blue Moon’s new narrative around chasing the everyday thrill.

Myra Nussbaum, senior vice-president, group creative director at DDB Chicago said: “Blue Moon’s advertising has traditionally focused on the craft beer’s brewing process and unique product attributes.

"We looked back to the origins of Blue Moon and found a great quote from a Blue Moon employee when they first tasted the Belgian White Ale, ‘A beer this good only comes around once in a blue moon.’ This phrase was our inspiration because it speaks to the specialness of the product but also got us thinking about what if ‘once in a blue moon’ could happen more often than once in a blue moon? The idea of exploring a world where once in a blue moon experiences can happen all the time gave us a great big creative sandbox to play in."
