Every year, Americans prepare for Super Bowl Sunday by contributing more than $2 billion in alcohol sales. Beer companies specifically will often be among the most prominent of the halftime ads. The beer industry as well as the alcohol and spirits industry are investing heavily in advertising in order to appeal to consumers.

Much of this advertising takes place on social media using paid campaigns, many of them dark – highly targeted, and not visible to the general public.

BrandTotal recently released its Paid Social Snapshot Reports for these industries, with key takeaways highlighted below. To download the full reports, see links at the bottom of this article.

Our objective with these reports was to analyze how major beer and alcohol brands use different social platforms and targeting strategies to achieve their goals.
