To make the most of this new service we need your help to create an accurate database of contact information from every beer media professional around. We also need your help to figure out how often to send releases and how to judge the relevancy of news. We know relevancy is a moving target and some news will be more regionally focused or more focused on certain audience such as extreme beer lovers. Please send us suggestions on how we can improve the service for you and help us spread the word!
If you have news from your brewery then send it to us! News can be anything from a big event that is happening to a new brand of beer you are introducing. Regardless of how relevant you think the news is, you can write a quick couple of paragraphs and send it our way and we will post everything on this site for Google and others to find. If the news is fairly large in scope, then we will definitely forward it to the entire beer media directory and let you know as soon as we do. Also, if you have suggestions on how to improve this service for breweries, let us know!
We know most distributors do not actively send out new releases promoting new beers. Well, that may be the case in traditional thinking, but we feel that is changing and that some beer distributors who want to grow their craft beer lines are helping their breweries do some of the promotion. If you are a craft beer distributor and might be carrying a particular news worthy beer in a new statee, send a news release letting us know your plans and even what the sales trends are. The more the beer media knows about new distribution, the more money you make.
Jonathan, thanks for emailing me. This is spectacular! Ironically, I was just thinking about the problem of gathering all the PR sheets from all the different breweries, etc. Aside from writing this blog, I write for several other beer sites, so this will be very beneficial to me.

Good idea. You might try to amass physical addresses so breweries can easily send out product samples.

Hello Jonathon, yes, I would like to remain on your list. I think it's a great idea. We (thebeerinme.com) try to keep up with all current beer news, so this would be great for us! Thanks for contacting me and I look forward to your emails!
