Manage your brand and product pages
Every brand page on GreatBrewers.com is intended to tell the story behind a brewery with verbiage that comes from the voice of the brewer, photos of the production facility, related videos, a map, and contact information.
Product pages provide up to 16 fields of information on each beer, including taste profile, food pairing, product image, style, strength (ABV), color (SRM), bitterness (IBU), package types, seasonal availability, UPC codes, and more. The BeerCloud mobile app is actively synced to data on GreatBrewers.com, so the entire BeerCloud user base will instantly see your updates.
One representative from each supplier is encouraged to manage and update their respective brand and product pages. To get started today, please contact us.
Connect your Twitter account
With complete Twitter integration, GreatBrewers.com makes it simple to automatically display your tweets on all your brewery and beer pages, keeping Great Brewers users who frequent your pages abreast of everything you care to tweet about.
While syncing your Twitter stream with your brewery/beer pages is pretty cool, the real power of Twitter integration is the way GreatBrewers.com sends your activities back through your Twitter account. Set up a new product page, and a tweet can automatically notify your followers of that new beer. Post an event, and another tweet will direct your followers to your event description/signup page. Host a blog, write a story, or create a list on GreatBrewers.com and tweets with links to your pages will automatically be fired off to your Twitter followers. Once you have been set up with brand manager access, visit your "My BeerCloud" page, hit "Edit" and select the "Twitter accounts" menu to integrate your account.

A Web log, or "blog" is one of the most powerful methods of sharing information over the internet. Blogs on GreatBrewers.com are a great platform for brewers to generate some great commentary on a wide range of beer related topics. Entries can be made in any frequency, and can focus on any subject of interest to the author.
