Sponsorship Opportunities:

To get a quote on sponsorship ad rates, please email: and request a Media Kit.

Sidebar and Embedded Ads: Sponsor ads are available in the 300W x 250H pixel size format and receive approximately between 30,000 to 35,000 ad impressions per month each. In addition, these 300x250 pixel sponsor ads are also rotated regularly in with our daily RSS feeds and email newsletters. These inclusions in with our email and RSS feeds give your ad an additional boost of several thousand more impressions a month at no extra charge.

Not only are your ads visible on the sidebar, but they are also embedded into regular weekly news posts for even greater visibility. You can also submit an ad 620W x 90H pixel size format in addition to your 300x250 ad at no additional cost to be included within regular posts.

Sponsor ad rates are not based upon # of impressions or click-thrus, rather, it is a standard flat rate per month. As our traffic grows, you don't pay for additional impressions.

Ad Rotation: Sidebar 300x250 ads rotate position 2 times a week (Wednesday & Sunday) to give all sponsors equal top spot visibility during the span of a month. The bottom ad is rotated to the top and all other ads move down 1 position.

Dedicated Sponsored Post - Feature your craft beer related event, product or service on a dedicated blog page post! If you have a lot of information that just won't fit on a typical sponsor ad, consider publishing a full post press release or custom message and provide readers with additional images and detailed information. Sponsored posts cost $50 per page and may include several embedded images and links. Full page posts never expire. Sponsored posts must be paid in full at the time of posting. These posts do not change once posted so be sure to submit accurate information. A separate fee will be required for future edits of this page. Your custom sponsored post will also initially receive promotion across Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Giveaway Sponsorship (NEW) - In lieu of being a paid sponsor, beer-related businesses can opt to become one of our Giveaway sponsors and offer up free promotional items to be given away to readers in exchange for visibility on the site. Giveaway sponsors must provide free items such as festival tickets, t-shirts, beer glassware, free beer coupons, brewery swag, growler fills, etc... and provide a method to deliver a prize directly to the winner. This could be a great way to help promote your business or event. For an example of a Giveaway, visit the Giveaways page.
