Episode 39 – Social Media Strategies for Nano Brewers

Having a virtual presence for your small brewery is imperative to help the physical business grow. We’ll do a deep dive into social media to learn about best practices from a leading expert and we’ll hear how one nano has approached building an online community.  

We spend a lot of time thinking about physical spaces. Taprooms, brewhouse layouts, beer gardens, that it can be hard to focus on the virtual spaces. But Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and more are important ways to keep a brewery top of mind and to show off creativity. 

Social Media can be intimidating for some, or a burden for others, but having a plan can ease those worries and bring people to your actual door step. 

This episode features two guests: Julie Rhodes of Not Your Hobby Marketing Solutions and Brian Goodman of Rushford and Sons Brewhouse
