St. Nicholas Brewing Company in DuQuoin, IL

Love good beer? Of course you do. Enjoy sharing craft beer news, information or photos on social media? Duh.


BREWTHINK now offers the ability for you – the dedicated craft beer aficionado in or around Southern Illinois – to share your passion with like-minded readers throughout the region and beyond as an official BREWTHINK contributor!


Curated by craft beer professional, Shawn Connelly, BREWTHINK is the culmination of well over 10+ years of craft beer coverage with a decidedly local flavor. Beginning with the Beer Philosopher blog and The Aleuminati – the (not so) secret society of better beer drinkers – BREWTHINK is the definitive online source for all things beer ’round here and we can’t do it without you.


Yes, YOU.


Just send us a note RIGHT HERE with a little bit (or examples) of your writing/blogging/social media prowess if you’re interested in becoming a contributor and we’ll share the details with you and, assuming all goes well, set you up to begin sharing your passion with the BREWTHINK nation (okay, maybe region).


Don’t think you have the time? Share as often or as rarely as you like; It’s as quick and easy as posting a photo or sharing a link on Facebook or Twitter and the potential ROI (that’s return on investment for the acronymically-challenged) is huge.

So what’s in it for you, you ask? For starters, you’re efforts as an official BREWTHINK contributor will be shared with an established and sizeable audience of craft beer fans throughout the area (and beyond) and you’ll have the obvious bragging rights of being an official contributor.


In other words, notoriety and access.


And here’s what you can do with these admittedly nebulous terms … in the tight-knit universe of craft beer, who you know and who knows you is critical. If you have interest in blogging or writing about craft beer, whether vocationally or recreationally, being a contributor to an established source of record is worth it’s weight in gold(en) ale. The exposure BREWTHINK can give you will put you on the craft beer map and lend a lot of credibility to your craft curriculum vitae (that’s like a resume, you know, for the … ummm … Latin-challenged?)


Further, as an OFFICIAL contributor, we can also often get you direct access to the people and places where the action (and, by action, we mean beer) is – whether that is exclusive interview opportunities with local/regional brewers, media access to beer festivals and events or the latest, greatest release party!


At BREWTHINK, we believe there is strength in numbers and the more informed voices we have sharing information on our site, the more informed our audience! So, become an official contributor and help Southern Illinois Drink Wisely with us!


Cheers to Better Beers!
