Rebirth of the largest beer brand in Ukraine

In 2016 to defend the brand’s leadership and grow a process of brand revitalization began. 

Chernihivske – is self-made brand that has stayed true to its roots over the years. It is similar to your regularUkrainian:  overcoming the odds to achieve something extraordinary. 

Chernihivske managed to become a Great Ukrainian brand from a small, unknown regional brewery in 30 years, due to belief in our beer and our ways of doing business. Indeed the brand continues to make strides today.   

The new campaign launched under the motto “I believe I can!”  inspires people to believe in their strength to achieve goals.  What’s more Chernihivske wanted to become more attractive to its loyal and potential consumers. Therefore, in 2017 we launched a radical brand redesign: The new packaging is bright in nature, with an emphasis on history, brewing traditions and our brand principles.
