craft beer email

Do you love craft beer?

Do you want to know about all the craft beer news from around the Midwest over the last week? (Everything that we think might be kinda important, anyways?)

Then you need to sign up for the GDB weekly craft beer and brewing news email! It comes to you once a week, full on fresh stories from around Chicagoland, plus a bunch of other places around the Great Lakes as well.

We’ll send you our craft beer news email every Monday, bringing you the news you might have missed from the preceding seven days. Basically all the beer news we think you need to know. You’ll also get a beer labels email on Wednesday and we round out the week with Events and Social Updates on Fridays. Plus breaking news whenever it merits an interruption to your day.

Sign up for our weekly craft beer & brewing news email on Substack now:

We’ll send you what we’ve written about that week, along with Chicago-based news stories, our favorite new labels of the week, along with news from Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin — sometimes even Missouri and Iowa gets into the fun.

Did someone sell their brewery or buy a new one? Is a beer brand extending a popular selection or adding a new seasonale? We’ll tell you about it. Want to know what beers might be coming out soon? We’ll send you the best new beer label of the week that we’ve spotted from a Midwestern brewery.

Want to know what’s opened and what’s closed around Chicagoland? We’ll send you regular updates on changes and additions to our Chicagoland Craft Beer map.

We even include random social media updates from brewers and breweries that we catch throughout the week, mostly because we’re on the internet all damn day. (BTW you should also follow us on Instagram too.)

Why? Well, someone has to keep track of this stuff, right?

We won’t sell or spread your personal info around, because that’s not cool at all. Also, we promise not to bug you too much. We get a ton of emails too. We know you don’t need more clutter in your inbox. Maybe we’ll send you some big breaking news from time to time. That sort of thing.

…and so on. You’ll like it. Sign up now for our beer news email now:
