Solve Launches 20th Anniversary Campaign For Founders Brewing

“Zero Regrets Artist Series” Celebrates Pivotal Moments In Brewer’s History

Solve’s new campaign for Founders Brewing Company’s 20th Anniversary illustrates the brand’s “zero regrets” philosophy and celebrates top moments in the brewer’s history. Co-Founders Mike Stevens and Dave Engbers chased their dream of opening a brewery with passion, persistence and never looking back, creating what has become America’s 15th largest craft brewery.

The “Zero Regrets Artist Series,” which takes shape as print, point-of-sale and digital/social support, features illustrations from a stable of well-known US and international artists, who also happen to be beer enthusiasts. The campaign builds to a contest allowing consumers to share their own inspirational stories and win a trip to Founders’ 20th Anniversary party this October.
