2018 Editorial Calendar

Every issue of Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine® includes regular departments like Beercation, Breakout Brewers, Gearhead, Ask Th e Experts, Make Your Best, and more. In addition, we organize the main feature package of each issue around a theme, like “IPA Today” or “The Summer of Saison” and review commercial beers released in that style. Secondary features, product tests, service pieces, and similar content is developed on an issue-by-issue basis as trends and ideas develop throughout the year. Here’s a loose rundown of what we have planned for 2018, but themes are subject to change if more timely subjects present themselves!
