DrinkCraftBeer.com: Mildly obsessed, so you don't have to be.
I started DrinkCraftBeer.com in the beginning of 2006 with my Co-Founder to advance the state of Craft Beer in our country and to enhance it's acceptance in the eyes of the mainstream consumer. Different from many beer sites that focus on the more extreme beer enthusiast, out target is the casual drinker who has a taste for better food and drink. Our goal is to push craft beer as a desirable accompaniment to food or by itself, instead of just a game day swill.
We do regular beer tastings in the Boston area at finer liquor stores, and work with local companies to provide beer pairing events. For example, in February 2008 we worked with local Somerville chocolate makers Taza to pair craft beer with their offerings. Our event drew an estimated 125 people and sold hundreds of dollars in merchandise in 2 hours.
Both Founders of DrinkCraftBeer.com come from a marketing background, having worked in both internet and event marketing for years.

Take care of your people, and they will take care of your customers. Mr. J. Willard Marriott knew that and what you read in the press about Marriott usually reflects their prominance in the lodging market.

When he was young, artist Shih Chieh Huang loved taking toys apart and perusing the aisles of night markets in Taiwan for unexpected objects.
