SABMiller's UK unit is giving a new look to Kozel as part of a wider push for the Czech lager brand in the on-trade. 

A new logo featuring Kozel's “iconic” goat will appear on founts, pumpclips and glassware in UK pubs and bars starting this month, Miller Brands said today (12 November). The move is part of a larger on-trade drive for the 4% abv beer, with various sampling initiatives and a Kozel ‘pint finder’ app also planned, the company said. 

Sam Rhodes, Miller Brands' customer marketing director, said: “Our research shows that glassware is the third most important factor in deciding which drink to choose, after taste and size.

“The new design will boost Kozel’s visibility in a growing category and give licensees a real opportunity to drive trial.” 

Rhodes pointed to UK on-trade figures showing that the "world beer" category has seen a 7.6% rise in volumes in the 12 months to 10 August. 

SABMiller last month reported a 4% lift in first-half net sales
