Living in Eastern Iowa can prove challenging to beer aficionados. My website is setup to tell you my thoughts on a particular beer, pub, store, etc. and where you can find certain beers!

    My name is Kaitlin Kennedy with Cantaloupe.tv.

    I am reaching out to “brew minded” folks like yourself to find landing destinations for a monthly craft beer / brewery video series we are producing. The idea is to deliver through your website a new and very relevant to your audience video story every month at no cost to you.


    Sun King Brewery’s new brew Grapefruit Jungle

    These are not commercials but rather “feels good to watch” stories surrounding topics your fans care about giving you a reason to circle fans back to your site over and over…

    I would be delighted to chat if this sparks your interest!

    I wanted to send information about a big event happening in the region that might be of interest to your readers for a weekend getaway. The Fifth Annual Kansas City Beer Festival in Kansas City, Mo., is taking place Saturday, Sept. 28 at KC Live! in the Power & Lights District located in Downtown Kansas City.

    Featuring more than 60 craft beers from local, regional and other breweries around the world, the KC Beer Fest will be worth the drive and a great excuse for a weekend trip for your readers. Additionally, a portion of funds will benefit two charitable organizations, Kansas City Care Clinic and AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City.

    Tickets went on sale this week, and I wanted to share the official news release for more information in case you’d like to include on upcoming regional events calendars or include a blurb in your publication.

    You can view the news release at http://powerandlightdistrict.com/index.cfm?page=news, which includes all details, but please let me know if you have questions.

    Thank you for your consideration,

    Kenneth Martin

    Lincoln, NE — Thursday, February 20, 2014 — Zipline Brewing Company is pleased to announce the launch of Iowa distribution in partnership with Johnson Brothers of Iowa, Inc. Distribution commences in March throughout Johnson Brothers’ Iowa territory, including Des Moines, Iowa City and Council Bluffs. The partnership follows the dynamic growth of Zipline from a small startup in 2012 to its present capacity of over 3,000 barrels annually, pacing since July 2013 as Nebraska’s third largest production brewery. This marks the first time Zipline products will be sold outside of Nebraska.
    “We are excited to bring what we consider an outstanding ‘local’ brewery across the River into Iowa,” says Lyle Stutzman, President Johnson Brothers of Iowa. The events kickoff with tap takeovers in two of the country’s premier beer bars: Reds Alehouse in North Liberty on March 5, and El Bait Shop in Des Moines on March 6.
    Head Brewer and Chief of Operations Marcus Powers, who will attend both events and others as part of the launch, relishes the opportunity: “We already feel a solid connection to Iowa beer consumers given our close proximity and their appreciation for local craft. And, we couldn’t find better partners in Johnson Brothers. We’re committed to making some of the best beer in America and can’t wait to share it with our neighbors.”

      Hi Corrie, thanks so much for the offer and thinking of me for your Beer Fest. Unfortunately, I will be in Los Angeles at a beachside beer fest during that time. Hopefully next year I will finally make it to Omaha. Thanks again!
