The soccer World Cup is expected to stimulate consumption of alcoholic drinks, but on the other hand health concerns can be a barrier. In order to find a balance, brands could take advantage of Brazilians’ interest in innovations, investing in new releases and promoting new experiences. It’s important, however, to understand consumers’ perceptions and how to seize the best consumption opportunities associated to each alcoholic beverage, taking into consideration what different consumers expect in terms of taste, convenience, health benefits and cost.
