My attempt at getting crafty with my beer choices

By now you probably know I'm part of a YouTube and Facebook Live show called Craftbeericans.  It all started in March after a discussion among friends trying to broaden our respective brands and share a love for craft beer. My friend Tom Harness is a social media guru and owner of Harness Digital Marketing. Todd Bryant is the morning drive DJ at the new Magic 95.1 in southern Illinois and runs a voice over business called Todd Bryant Voice Productions. Todd Ellis rounds out the Craftbeericans with his Plain Brown Media digital creative agency. 

My three friends love their craft beer, but comparatively speaking, I'm new to the game.  That's why I wanted to do this show.  Not only to help myself and my friends expand our brands, but also to learn more about craft beer.  I don't know much about distinguishing what makes a good craft beer based on the ingredients, but I do know what I like.

We've already recorded a handful of shows as we count down from Episode 99 (just like the song).  We recently had a chance to mingle with a lot of craft breweries here in southern Illinois and beyond at the CarbondALE Brew Fest. The Craftbeericans were live via Facebook throughout the evening, drinking and learning more about what the amazing craft beer choices our region has.

So if you haven't already, like the Facebook page and subscribe to the  YouTube channel.  Also follow @Craftbeericans on Twitter, Instagram and Periscope.  Let us know what kind of craft beer you enjoy and we may include it in an episode. We're always looking for ideas and guests.  Cheers!
