Our Philosophy

Our vision of the beer world, our style and our whole philosophy are somewhat different from other trade publications. We focus on the United States commercial beer industry, while always keeping an eye on international brewing events to gauge their effect here. We stress the links between politics, personalities, law, and business. We are irreverent, and we are independent. We do not accept advertising in our publications, and our content is gathered and edited always with the reader in mind, so you always get the unvarnished straight scoop, without the fluff and bull you get in other publications.

BeerNet gives our clients the information they need to make them more powerful and effective managers and leaders, both on an on-going basis with our "push" newsletters (delivered via email), and on a reference basis with our archived web resource at beernet.com.

Our knowledge-based publications and summits not only help our clients become strategic and tactical in their thinking about the business of beer, they also empower our clients with an institutional understanding of the everyday events and people that drive our industry. We don't just report the news, we connect the dots and draw conclusions.

Our publications and Beer Summits are expensive by design, not blunder. Their price keeps the readership to a manageable few who are serious about exploring the tough issues in the beer industry.

At a time when business is going global and when more and more companies are striving to join the United States beer economy (the largest profit pool in the world, by far), our timely electronic publications give you the news and infomation as it happens, with institutional memory and perspective added, and you can see historical issues archived on our website.

This approach is increasingly relevant: 1. Daily news, digested and stripped of bull, with political and strategic perspective added; and 2. The in-depth investigation into the changes in the post-21st Amendment three-tier system in the U.S., plus the latest ideas to become more productive beer distributors and marketers.

Jim: No Exit Strategy

FILED JULY 31, 2015 So you editor has been traveling lately. I've been to London, New York, Germany, Austin…… and the question wherever I go is: When or if is Boston Beer's Jim Koch retiring? Is he going into politics? Is his wife so rich and hot that he'll retire and just hang with her? Will he die? The answer, of course, is no. He will never die.
