Craft Beer and Advertising

Being part of ACB’s correspondent team and representing them in a great craft beer city like San Diego can be overwhelming…I could spend almost every weekend covering another incredible brewery and never run out options. But as a fan of craft beer industry and also a student of marketing and advertising my interests sometimes converge. So I thought I’d step away from my last brewery visit (hope to get to all of them) and tackle something larger that’s been on my mind…

Something like Craft Beer and Advertising.



Newbies - New Releases That You Want to Look Out For

Rare Oak Pale Ale / Bock Bock / Hot Lips IPA and more!

So many beers- So little time... Fort George Brewery does an annual collaboration IPA and this year they’ve enlisted Georgetown Brewing and the Pfriem Family Brewers to help them. Word has it that things got pretty wild and that’s why we’re psyched about their latest 3-way. Plus we’ve some new releases from Shmaltz and Innis & Gunn that sound exceptionally awesome as well.

The State of American Craft Beer – Arkansas


The fourth state we’re getting the skinny on is The Natural State, Arkansas. Known for it’s dense timberlands as well as two mountain ranges (Ozark and Ouachita), it ranks 32nd in total population (2.97 million), is backed by the Arkansas Brewers Guild as well as the Arkansas Craft Distributors and at last count houses roughly 20 breweries.  The bulk of the state’s breweries are found in Little Rock and Fayetteville and as of 2013, the state ranked 41st in total breweries and 40st in breweries per capita, according to the Brewers Assocation.



Newbies - New Releases That You Want to Look Out For

Pinedrops IPA / Blueberry Mint Saison / White Light White Heat and more!

So many beers- So little time... Gigantic Brewing only makes one year-round, Gigantic IPA. Everything else is a seasonal that’s usually around for no longer than 3 months and then never repeated again – and that’s why we’re psyched about their latest offering. We’ve some new releases from Deschutes and Heavy Seas that sound exceptionally awesome as well.
