We seek to capture the essence and passion of brewers, both big and small, foreign and domestic, each of whom has a distinctive and colorful story to go along with the beautiful beers they produce.

Crouch and Holl speak with the smartest and most engaging folks in the beer business, bringing their listeners along for the ride.

Beer Edge connects its audience with the wonderful, gregarious, and often challenging world of beer. With thousands of breweries around the globe producing awe-inspiring ales and lagers, there truly has never been a better time in history to be a beer drinker. While beer long served as a uniform, interchangeable widget for many beer drinkers, differentiated only by the cheekiness of the brand’s supporting ad campaign, today’s beer offers a deeply personal experience for many people.
