CraftGeer Featured on

When we launched the CraftGeer brand earlier this year, one of our goals was to create glassware and apparel that the craft beer community would love - the entire craft beer community. That meant creating apparel that the millions of women who love craft beer would love to wear.

So last week, when one of the most- influential women in the craft-beer community said "But as much as I love the glassware, I love the shirts even more. My current favorite is the Drink Local tank top. It (is) long (women love the long shit), stretchy (women love the stretchy sh*t) and pretty damn flattering (women like to look good, yo)." 

We were truly flattered by those words from Ashley Routson on

Blog Wrap Up: Some Love for CraftGeer from Around the Web

After doing this whole CraftGeer thing for a solid seven months now, we're just finally getting a chance to catch our breath a bit.

Something that we've wanted to make sure we recognized since we launched the site, is the fact that there are so many great people out there who have come across CraftGeer and, and enjoyed their experience and our products enough to recognize CraftGeer on their blogs.

Going back through our notes, we found these three blogs that made mention of their experience with CraftGeer:
We were lucky enough to have the chance to meet Vin from the first time we took the CraftGeer brand on the road at the Big Brew Beer Fest in Morristown, New Jersey. We always enjoy Vin's posts and reviews. If you have a chance, definitely check out his blog; and here are some other ways to keep up to date with him across social media:


Tasty Mug
About three weeks after she posted her piece on on, I was finally able to reach out to Tasty Mug's Kelly personally and thank her for featuring the CraftGeer brand on her blog. We really enjoy the Tasty Mug, and if you have a few minutes, we think you'll find it worth your while to check out too. And here are a few other ways to check out some of the awesome things that Kelly is doing across social media:


The Beer Barons
The Indiana Beer Barons are a very interesting group, and the blog is awesome. Since their are five people who make up the group, their is always fresh, new content. They even went as far as to give us a heads up about the CraftGeer post on Twitter before it went live (awesome touch). They do a cool job with their ratings and reviews along with so many other great craft-beer-related posts. If you're a craft beer fan, especially one from Indiana, you'll want to check out The Beer Barons. Because there are so many contributors, it wouldn't be fair to only list the contact info for on, so here is a link with info on how to get in touch with all of The Beer Barons across social media:

As hard as we try to find everything out there, it is possible that we missed a post somewhere along the line. If you know of a blog post about CraftGeer that we may have missed, hit us up on Twitter at @craftgeer.

Our Real Women Campaign Adds Real Women

Maybe we rushed a little bit in order to make our new CraftGeer "Real Women Drink Craft Beer" apparel line up live and available on We had a vision for how everything should come together to promote the new products, and somewhere along the line, in a hurry to get things onto the site, I created the promotional banner ad for items with "Real Women" in the name with stock art - and if anyone knows me, I always frown upon using stock art.

Luckily, within a period of about 18 hours, we have been able to correct our mistakes, and launch our first two Real Women Drink Craft Beer banners, with "real women."

We would like to thank Lauren (@LaurenTap42 on Instagram) and Morgan (@Morgan_LHB on Twitter) from the Left Hand Brewing Taproom for agreeing to let us share two of their pics as part of our banners on

Now that we're talking about real women drinking craft beer, we'd like to see your best CraftGeer selfie. If you'd like to see your picture as part of the CraftGeer Real Women Drink Craft Beer Campaign, simply share a picture of yourself enjoying a great craft beer on Instagram and tag it with both #realwomendrinkcraftbeer and #craftgeer and we'll pick someone new at least every other to be featured on a banner (and we'll send you a couple of cool things for helping us out).

We look forward to seeing what you're drinking. Cheers!

Introducing The Real Women Drink Craft Beer Collection Exclusively from CraftGeer

Even we designed the first products for CraftGeer, we focused on having tees and tanks designed specifically for women. We had noticed that the selection of clothing available for the women of the craft beer community ranged from the good, to the uncomfortable, to men's tees in a size small, to designs that were downright offensive.

When our first designs started to get out there, one of the social media hashtags we saw them shared with over and over again was #realwomendrinkcraft; and since we already knew that real women do drink craft beer - the Real Women Drink Craft Beer Collection was born.

Check out the Real Women Drink Craft Beer Collection now on

CraftGeer Debuts Brand at Morristown, New Jersey's Big Brew Beer Fest

This past weekend, the team took their apparel and glassware products offline for the first time ever as they hit the Big Brew Beer Fest in their own backyard in Morristown, New Jersey.

"Honestly, I barely slept for the week leading up to the event," said Joe Simonovich, co-founder of CraftGeer. "I want people to embrace the brand, and when you're representing your own brand in front of people, you really want them to like you."

From the turnout at the CraftGeer booth, it seemed like the first event for the CraftGeer team.

"It was a lot of fun," said Jenn Polino, co-founder of CraftGeer. "We got to meet a lot of people, and it was especially exciting to see how many of them actually knew about CraftGeer - some were even wearing tees from us (pictured above)."

All in all, the CraftGeer team determined that their first beer fest was a success, and already have more events planned for the coming months.

"Over the next few weeks, we'll be making some announcements on where we're coming next," said Simonovich. "We're excited for all of the events that we've signed up to become part of, and we're even more excited to get out there and become an even bigger part of the craft beer community."

CraftGeer Now Accepting International Orders Only Through PayPal

Since we launched in March of 2013, we have not tried to hide the fact that the International Craft Beer Community has embraced the CraftGeer brand, as a matter of fact, we have been very proud of the fact that our products have been ordered from places like Brazil, Netherlands, England, Italy, Germany, Japan, Australia, Sweden, Germany, and more places that I know I am leaving out. We love the fact that CraftGeer, our Denville, New Jersey based start-up has fans rocking our ‘Geer’ on 6 continents (time step up your craft beer game Antarctica).

In many ways, this announcement that will only accept PayPal for orders placed outside the United States from today on is a good thing. It means that CraftGeer is looking out for you, our customers, insuring that when you place an order on our site, the item you want is in stock, and hasn’t been sent out to someone who may not be purchased it due to the fact that they are a member of our craft-beer-loving community.

All of that being said, effective immediately, all orders with billing or shipping addresses outside the United States which use a credit card on will be rejected – only orders using PayPal as payment method will be processed on our site. As has always been the case, all orders shipping internationally will ship via USPS International Priority Mail, and you will be billed the actual cost of shipping. We use USPS International Priority Mail exclusively for our international customers, due to the fact that it is traceable by the customer from start to finish.

If anyone would like a further explanation international shipping policy, please contact our customer service team – we’ll be glad to explain this policy in further detail.
