Usher in the beginning of the Year of the Rat with an abundance of promotions and festive giveaways as Tiger Beer doubles the celebration on its auspicious 88th anniversary.
KUALA LUMPUR, 20th December 2019 – Chinese New Year is a time full of hopes for prosperity, happiness, and reasons to celebrate. For Tiger Beer, Malaysia’s No. 1 beer1, there’s another cause for celebration in the Year of the Rat – 2020 marks its auspicious 88th anniversary. In honour of this double celebration, Tiger Beer is sharing the prosperity with consumers with its campaign ‘Double the Huat’.
As befits such an important milestone, Tiger Beer is going all out this festive season with a series of promotions, contests and activations on a grander scale than ever before. In addition to this packed schedule, Tiger Beer is collaborating with legendary Malaysian singer-songwriter, Namewee, to create a brand-new music video just in time for the Year of the Rat. In the spirit of ‘Double the Huat’, this isn’t the only collaboration fans of Tiger Beer and Namewee can expect in the coming weeks – with further details set to be unveiled soon.
Chances to get exclusive merchandise are also doubled this year, with festive giveaways such as Tiger Beer Mahjong sets, Heineken® Poker sets, cash prizes and even gold coins up for grabs through various means.
From now until mid-February, consumers who purchase any big bottle of Tiger Beer, Tiger Crystal, Heineken® or Guinness Foreign Extra Stout at participating food courts or coffee shops can check underneath their bottle caps for three different Huat characters – “A”, “B’ and “C” – representing different prizes to be won! One “A” bottle cap wins consumers a Huat Huat Ang Pow of RM888, a “B” bottle cap allows a redemption of a Huat Huat Ang Pow worth RM388, while collecting 12 bottle caps marked “C”, or six Tiger Crystal bottle caps, allows customers to redeem one can of Tiger Crystal.
