  • Happy #InternationalBeerDay! 🍺

In honour of this fun global event, we’re very excited to share our most recent brew, Energi Rapsody!

What technically is a ‘Rhapsody’ you ask? It's a piece of music written without a formal structure, expressing powerful feelings and emotional excitement. In that note, our limited edition beersie is rich with highly contrasted tasting notes and colour!

This fresh brew is a Bohemian Pilsner with black pepper hops and spicy herbal undertones, that will take you on a journey.

Rhapsody comes along with a curated playlist of Rhapsodies to give you the full experience. 

Check out the playlist link in our bio!
  • July 2020 will be remembered as the month for social media going dark.

At Energi, we joined the global boycott initiative over the last 30 days in order to express our disappointment in key social media platforms allowing hate speech to fester unheeded. 

Read more about this, along with the other exciting things we and our clients have been up to during this period in our latest newsletter. Link in our bio. ✨

CovidPayment

All of a sudden, all payment surfaces are scary. Eftpos machines, ATM touchscreens, debit cards, POS terminals, and even our old friend – cold hard cash. For frequent shoppers, the use of these payment mechanisms has rapidly become the harbinger of fearmongering and suspicion as it has transitioned overnight from a harmless everyday function to a potential threat to our health. When going about our daily routine, many of …

For most of us, the supermarket is a natural part of everyday life. Sure, there is a minority who buy through modern alternatives like subscriptions services, or click and collect, or shop online with home delivery; but most of us still make regular trips to the supermarket for our shopping. Our relationship with our supermarket is like other long-term relationships in life. We like things to be steady and …

Fast forward the last couple of decades to today, there have been many innovations that have transformed our shopping experience.  Thanks to the wonderful powers of technology, the way we interact not only online but in-store has been forever changed.

GenZConsume

Gen Z is the first generation to have grown up with connected devices in their hands. But “always on” doesn’t mean for a second they are the easiest to connect to. Being Millennial got me the generic title of “digital savvy,” but I remember a time without internet connections and I didn’t receive my first smartphone until my 20’s.  However, Gen Zers have never known a world without smartphones, …

I could be the winner of $10 million.” “How likely am I to recommend us to a friend or colleague?” I’ve been given “All these exclusive Akl travel offers”, even …
