Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold Helps Adventurers with Their Gear
Now boarding flight #85 (calories, that is) to a summer free from oversized luggage fees. As travelers and outdoor enthusiasts get back to their regularly scheduled adventures, the first nationally available USDA certified organic lager, Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold, wants them to worry less about the stress of getting their gear to their next destination and more about enjoying the thrilling outdoor adventures that await them.
This summer, Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold wants to “Board Your Gear” so adventurers from SUPers and surfers, to cyclists and golfers can focus on their next nature-filled experience without all the pricey oversized baggage fees that come with bringing their own gear.
“The anticipation of getting back to travel has been building and summer is ripe for outdoor adventure,” said Ricardo Marques, Vice President of Marketing, Michelob ULTRA. “The Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold ‘Board Your Gear’ campaign will help allow those who are traveling to their long-awaited adventures to focus on the experience that awaits them out in nature with friends and great beer and not worry about the cost of getting their gear there.”
To familiarize explorers with the process of how to “Board Your Gear,” travelers are encouraged to buckle their seatbelt and view this video courtesy of the Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold crew. The brand will cover baggage fees for pro athletes and amateurs alike looking for their next outdoor thrill, including:
- Mountain bikers who are ready for the next uphill challenge or daytime cyclists who want to cruise the coast
- Surfers who are hunting for their next beach break, even if they’re not heading to the 2021 Olympics
- Kayak and SUP-fanatics whose gear alone is a hefty airport experience in itself
- Golfers still seeking their first ace and don’t want to sweat the costs of their heavy golf clubs

Outdoor adventurers can simply post a photo on Twitter or Instagram using their outdoor gear with #BoardYourGear, #Sweepstakes and @MichelobULTRA for a chance to have Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold to cover their oversized baggage fees this summer.
“As someone who is constantly flying with at least one surfboard bag, I’m pretty excited about Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold’s new initiative,” said John John Florence, two-time world champion surfer. “It’s encouraging surfers, bikers, and golfers to get back out to enjoying the nature that makes the sports we love possible, without having to worry about additional costs to get your gear there.”
“Board Your Gear” is a 360 marketing campaign that will include PR, OOH, social and experiential popups in key airports, as well as one :30 film and three :15 films that focus on surfing, biking and hiking. All can be viewed on Michelob ULTRA’s YouTube.
