I am currently putting together the first issue of a beer newsletter (tentatively titled "The Brews paper"). This will be a local publication for the Southern California Desert but will be relevant to readers across the United States. The newsletter will be distributed free to a subscribed mailing list, as well as being dropped off at various strategic locations.
The purpose of the newsletter is to fill a geographical gap in literature available and also to inform and educate readers of the diversity and complexity often under appreciated in beer.
I anticipate the first issue to be of fairly limited distribution, aimed at gathering a subscription list and a couple of advertisers.
Currently in draft as a 4-page flyer:
Cover: A feature article relating to a local brewer, as well as world beer news headlines.
Inside 1: An article relating to a style of beer (probably Marzen/Vienna) and recommended beers within that style.
Inside 2: Beers reviewed this month (15-20). I am seeking a sponsor/supplier for this page.
Back: Will initially just cover contact information.
Additional columns may include beer in the mail clubs and local events.
There will be advertising opportunities at the foot of the the first 3 pages, but at the moment I am pretty flexible and open to suggestions.
