Beer Edge

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. 

Flavorful beer elicits strong feelings, brings out passions, and forges a sense of community among those who love it. Far beyond a solo exercise, beer drinking today offers those engaged the opportunity to come together in celebration of the beverage they love.

Beyond all the fun of hoisting rich, creamy stouts and drinking juicy and aromatic IPAs, brewing is also big business today. A multi-billion dollar industry that shapes trends, promotes agriculture, manufacturing, and economic growth on Main Streets around the country, the beer industry employs hundreds of thousands of passionate people who work hard everyday to fill your glasses.
