WashingtonBeerTV - A YouTube Channel Dedicated to WA Beer
April 11, 2012 - 11:24 AM-- by Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog --
Today the Washington Beer Commission announced the launch of WashingtonBeerTV, a YouTube channel dedicated to Washington beer. The goal is to give craft beer fans a look behind the scenes at some of Washington's great breweries and also provide some insight into other aspects of the state's brewing industry.
WashingtonBeerTV currently features 22 videos. In a statement released today, the Washington Beer Commission said, "Not only can you meet your local brewer and get a peek at some unique brewing systems, but you'll also find a video highlighting the Washington Beer Commission's tasting festival scene, a look at the old Rainier Brewery tanks, and even a video on how to make beer, featuring Roger Bialous from Georgetown Brewing!"

The videos are informative, entertaining and very well produced. Kind of like Washington beer itself. They are short and to the point. The longest video is eight minutes and features Roger Bialous explaining how beer is made, which is not easy to do in such a short order. Most videos are less than five minutes.
According to the Commission, "This is just the beginning of the promotional campaign by the Washington Beer Commission's marketing committee, which is charged with taking the proceeds from the production of the Washington Beer Commission's tasting festivals and meeting the mission to promote Washington beer, benefit the state's breweries, and increase awareness and demand."
To produce the videos, the Commission turned to Len Davis of Pangeality Productions. Davis is not only a skill videographer but is also a big fan of craft beer. He look forward to adding more videos to WashingtonBeerTV in the future.
Like the beers, the music used in the videos is produced locally. The original tunes come from local band McTuff.
