Marketing is everything, amirite? If you’re reading this blog post right now, it’s pretty safe to say that you’re a fan of tasty craft brew. But, are you a fan of creative marketing? Well, yes, you are (to a certain extent, we all are), but you might not even know it. While the most important thing about craft beer is that actual liquid in the bottle you’re purchasing, the second most important thing is marketing. A brewery’s job is to sell you their product, just like every other retail company.

This week, we fall for a marketing gimmick, and we’re OK with it, because it’s a pretty tasty gimmick.

Blend Like a Brewer

This week on the show, we’re drinking the New Belgium Brewing Company Blend Like a Brewer variety pack. Essentially, what we have here is a box of New Belgium’s standard line of beers (with a special sour beer thrown in for good measure) and a pamphlet that takes you on a magical beer blending journey. New Belgium got some of their brewers together to concoct six different blends of beer from the beers in the variety pack. Pretty cool, right?

Turns out, the blends are pretty damn good! Seriously—we thought they were quite impressive, overall. So, pick up a box at your local supermarket and get to blending!

BREW THE SHIT OUT OF IT.

[S4/E30] Prost Brewing

Season 4, Episode 30 – This week, 4B listener Nick Krenz makes our Prost dreams come true.

The time has finally come. We’re finally here, all thanks to Four Brewers listener Nick Krenz. This week, we finally have Prost Brewing beers on the show. What a glorious day!

Prost Brewing
Prost Brewing

Ok, that was a tad hyperbolic. But, we are extremely excited to finally have some of the best German-style beers made in America on the show, from none other than Prost Brewing out of Denver, Colorado.

As we mentioned, the beers this week were provided to us by 4B listener Nick Krenz. After he heard us gushing about Prost and wishing that we could get our hands on their beers, Nick emailed us and offered to send some of their beers our way. Nick didn’t disappoint, either…

We can’t recommend Prost Brewing enough. If they’re available in your local market or if you’re ever in the Denver area, do yourself a favor and stop in for a litre or two…or, three…
