Porchdrinking: "Brew Pipeline’s Guest Brewer Program Brings Rare Beers to New Markets"
The secondary market of craft beer is both vibrant and volatile. The search to buy or trade for “whales” and trendy hazy IPAs has only expanded with social media, trade forums and online communities. Buying beer off this market can often be tedious; it is always expensive due to the simple economics of supply and demand. Brew Pipeline, a new craft beer-focused startup, saw this as an opportunity to provide greater availability of high-demand beers to out-of-market regions, leading to the creation of the Guest Brewer program.
