When we decided to redesign the Skull Coast website we wanted to create an environment that would allow us to quickly update all aspects of the brewery and taproom construction phases. We want to share all of the gritty details, maybe even details many people won't be all that interested in. It is an "all in" endeavor. We consider this taproom to be yours and we want you to be part of the development process.
While it will be fairly easy to set up a blog around the construction process and Skull Coast products we wanted the Skull Coast blog to be just a bit different from what is already out there. We also identified that there are craft beer bloggers out there doing a fantastic job of providing all of us with the latest in local, regional and in some cases even national craft beer news. To be honest the people running these blogs do such an outstanding job we would be foolish to even attempt to enter their space.
So in order to make our blog different enough while being informative we are going to launch a guest blog series but with a bit of a spin. Our guest bloggers will not solely encompass people working in the production of craft beer. We want the guest blog to include all of the moving parts within the craft beer industry. Including brewers, assistant brewers, distributors, sales representatives, bar owners, bar tenders, servers and most importantly consumers. North Carolina is at a tipping point within the craft beer industry and we are going to collect the thoughts, opinions and predictions that will shape this state into becoming the go-to-state for craft beer on the East Coast.
Overly ambitious? Possibly… but we wouldn't be very good pirates if we settled for mediocrity.
I'm currently in the process of building out a schedule for the guest blog so if you have any ideas, input or if you'd like to participate please contact me.
