It’s no secret that developing a strong brand personality, no matter what industry you are in, is smart and effective. Competition is fierce right now in the craft beer world and getting noticed in the very crowded shelf-space is essential.

Tierney and I hit up the Hibrewnation Festival of Beer this past Saturday (Dec 13) at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg. It’s the first of three Hibrewnation fests in the series.

Don’t Tell Me How to Rate My Beer!

December 6, 2014 7

As of late, I’ve been hearing a lot of folks who use the Untappd app say they rarely rate or comment on the beers they check-in because they’re afraid of how the brewery might react if they don’t give a favorable review.

Craft Beer Gear: Upcycled Beer Signs

October 18, 2014 0

For the past 10 years, my husband Derek and I have been turning our passion for craft beer into art. Not only am I a designer and artist but I am also somewhat of a hoarder. Well not really -I just like to save things from going into the trash that could be repurposed and reused, especially things that are Read More
