Back in April I wrote that I was trying out the social network Twitter. Since then it's become a useful, and fun, part of my "beer networking." Through Twitter I've met numerous other craft beer fans. It's been a handy tool for meeting up with friends at beer fests and when I'm on the road. Many beer bloggers use Twitter as an extension of their blogs. A growing number of craft beer breweries have discovered Twitter as well. Flying Dog was an early adopter and remains very active sending updates about their beers, festivals, promotions, and other news. There are a large number of other breweries, large, small, and in planning, using Twitter to interact with fans. Here are a few that I've run across.
21st Amendment Brewery, San Francisco, CA
Bell's Brewing, Kalamazoo, MI
Boundary Bay Brewery, Bellingham, WA
Bridgeport Brewing, Portland, OR
Deschutes Brewery, Bend, OR
Dogfish Head, Milton, DE
Epic Beer, Auckland, New Zealand
Flying Dog Brewery, Frederick, MD
Full Steam, Durham, NC
Lift Bridge Brewery, Stillwater, MN
Marin Brewing Company, Larkspur, CA
Metro Brewing, Chicago, IL
Monday Night Brewery, Atlanta, GA
Moylan's Brewery, Novato, CA
There are certainly ones I've missed. If you are a brewery with a Twitter presence, or know of a brewery that posts to Twitter, feel free to add them in the comments. If you are a Twitter user, be sure to look for your favorite brewery.
