Welcome to BeerWriters.com
We hope BeerWriters.com will become a sort of central "clearing house" for people who read about beer to find people who write about beer.
We are just getting started and have lot's of things to do yet so please be a gentle with us.
We have a "Suggest a Site" form where you can suggest beer related RSS feeds to be included. We have to check the sites in question because anybody who has run a web site for more than 15 minutes knows the spam problem out there.
There is also a small forum section for your use if you want. Mostly we hope to be a "Go Between" as I said.

From 16-Mile Brewing:
The biggest news coming out of Georgetown is actually about Newark. What? That’s right, we recently announced the opening of the 16 Mile Taphouse on Main Street in Newark, Delaware. 16 Mile Brewing has partnered with The Graceland Group to produce the first of possibly more taphouses designed around the 16 Mile brand. Our first location will be the former Stone Balloon Winehouse near the University of Delaware. You can expect great food paired with your favorite 16 Mile beers (and...

Who would have known a funny little obsession with pumpkin beers would grow into one of the Northwest's Largest Fall Beer Events?! Elysian Brewing's Great Pumpkin Beer Festival started in Seattle back in 2005 with less than 10 beers in total. Nine years later, pumpkin fever is in full force, and the Elysian's 9th Annual GPBF (as it's now known) will span three days, with one - six hour session each day. Over 60 pumpkin beers will be flowing at any given time,...
For all the talk of beer blogging, it strikes me after over a year of writing on these my blogs is how many of the best bits I've plunked down are at the blogs of others. This obviously implies that there is a insular nature to the reciprocal nature of bloggers but it also illustrates how there is one large conversation in a way. One of the things I wrote today struck me as pretty good was this, a defence of the jumble that is the beer culture to my south:
OK, you bait me. You draw me in.
Here is the problem with that argument. You have a beer culture. There have been premium...
BRANDON, MB – An ambitious proposal to convert an historic firehall in downtown Brandon into a co-op brewpub is likely to be rejected during a city council meeting this evening.

Summer officially arrived over the first weekend in June, when the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival hit the streets of Midtown. Beer Street Journal was there, scoping out the craft beer and food scene at one of the finest festivals we’ve ever attended.
After a 10 year partnership, Elizabeth Feichter and Dominique Love joined forces to create AFWF a couple of years back and it has grown in to a must-do event for all Southern food and drink fanatics. The three day event puts attendees in the mix with some of the best chefs, brewers, wine makers, and mixologists the southeast has to...
I’m excited to be the first to show you the next release in the Brewery Ommegang series of beers coming for the HBO series Game of Thrones. This 2nd release for Game of Thrones beers is called Take The Black Stout--“A stout as dark as the winters that once engulfed Westeros, as robust as the men who swear their oaths at the Weirwood Tree., chocolate & caramel sweetness are balanced by hop bitterness, roasty woodsy notes and an earthy finish.” Take The Black Stout will be brewed with star...
What started out as a slur during a legislative debate ended Saturday with laughs, hugs, photos and cups of Leinie's at the 10th annual Leinie Lodge Family Reunion in Chippewa Falls - and a pledge to meet again in a few months on Rep. Kurt Zellers' home turf in Minnesota.
During a debate over raising the state alcohol tax in April, Zellers compared Leinenkugel's with bathwater. The Maple Grove Republican apologized...
An interesting new “crowd-brewed” beer coming from Yellow Tail winemaker in Australia. The label above was approved in April 2013 and MHW Ltd will be bringing it to the US. Arvo is a lager that will be packaged in 11.2oz bottles.

I just looked at my watch and realized it has been weeks since I have offered a beer news update. With my life distractions, contests and other goings on around these parts, I simply haven’t thought to put together a collection of what is happening. Plus, my visit to the Edmonton Craft Beer Festival on the weekend (more on that another day) gave me some nice intelligence on what some breweries have coming up.
Let’s get to it, starting with what is already out there:
From Chicago Real Estate:
For the second time in five years, the Goose Island brewpub in Lincoln Park is on the brink of closure.
Lease negotiations for the 12,500-square-foot restaurant and bar at 1800 N. Clybourn Ave. have broken down because of a dispute about rent and are “not moving forward,” said Chris Siavelis, senior vice president at Deerfield-based CRM Properties Group Ltd., which owns the...
