Tips on Submitting News

Facebook Connect
To add a news post, simply choose the option to “Login with Facebook” at the top of the news list page or at the bottom of any news post. Once you accept, the buttons + Add a News Release or Edit your Posts will appear.

*** You must use Facebook Connect with a personal account. Pages/business accounts do not work. Once logged in, you will have complete control of what contact information shows up on the posts you create. None of your personal contact information will be shown/shared.***

Plain Text
When adding text to this and all forms on CraftBeer.com, it is best to remove all formatting before pasting into the form. Notepad (PC) or TextEdit (Mac) are easy ways to ensure your text is ready to be pasted into the form.

New Release Title
Enter the title of your release. NO ALL CAPS PLEASE…see it’s annoying!

News Release Text
Add the body of your news release to the form. Don’t include contact information, that will be collected separately.

Category
Choose a the category that best describes your news.

Contact Information
Please provide your contact information, including an email for those that might have questions.

Tags
You can type in a new tag (when you begin typing existing tags will appear) or choose from a list of common tags.

Featured Image
Upload the image you would like to use in your post. Be sure to click the blue button that says “Use as featured image” before saving. If you’re having an issue uploading a photo, it’s more than likely too big. Keep images under 1,200 pixels wide for easy upload.

Publishing and Editing
Once you select the publish button at the bottom of the form, you will be taken directly to your new post. Options to edit or add a new post will be at the bottom of the page.
