Juicy, Hoppy, Fruity. A medium-bodied, aromatic, dry-hopped pale ale. Not quite an India pale ale, nor a typical American pale ale, we brew Raised by Wolves to highlight the rich flavors and aromas of hops rather than their bitterness. This beer has aromas reminiscent of lush tropical, citrus and stone fruits with a juicy body that you can sink your teeth into. http://www.rightproperbrewing.com/what-we-do

Conversational Marketing and Chatbots – Episode 003
We’re still working on improving the video and audio of our broadcasts and recordings. Thanks for bearing with us. Episode 003 of Marketers Drinking Beer was filmed LIVE from The Limerick Pub. This episode’s featured beers are brewed by Waredaca Brewing Co. White Flag Belgian Wit w/ Thai Basil “A smooth, creamy Belgian Wit beer with Thai Basil added after fermentation. Orange and Coriander are also added to compliment the clove aromatics from the Belgian Wit beer yeast. Low alcohol and great to enjoy during warm spring and summer days.” ABV: 4.7 % Camptoberfest Marzen/Festbier “This malty but crisp lager is our interpretation on the Marzen/festbeir category. As with all of our beers, it is crisp and clean due to 2 month of aging. Nice lager characteristics. Copper in color and easy drinking. Not overly sweet. All German Malt.” ABV: 5.7% | IBU: 15 See Waredaca’s Full Selection of Beers | Where to Buy Waredaca Beer This episode’s co-hosts are, once again: Paul Gannon, CEO of Thoughtcast Media Video Marketing Dave Martin, Director of Marketing at the American College of Radiology Tom Lehman, President of Lehman Reports Patrick Dorsey, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Impexium 01:34 – Introductions Dave has kicked things off at his new job by focusing on how his marketing department is currently operating, and the processes behind it. Tom published his big AMS study in July, and is actively working on a business plan for a new venture in a trillion dollar industry. Patrick recently launched phase one of his website redesign, and had a successful trip to ASAE Annual 2018. And Paul just returned from shooting a mini-documentary for a manufacturing company in Kansas. 05:25 – The co-hosts also welcome their special guest, Brett Snyder of Waredaca Brewing Co. Brett Snyder is the co-founder of Waredaca Brewing Co., located in Laytonsville, Maryland. He shares Waredaca’s story of how they got started, and how they fit into the broader Maryland brewing ecosystem. Brett then introduces White Flag, their Belgian Wit with Thai basil, as well as their soon-to-be-released (Aug. 30) take on a Marzen festbier, Camptoberfest. (See their full section of beers, and where to find them.) The co-hosts try both these beers for the first time, and share their opinions. 22:00 – In this week’s Wort on the Street segment, in which each host brings a couple hot topics to the table: Jeff Bezos has banned Powerpoint in executive meetings. Smart Assistants are confirmed to be influencing purchasing decisions. Humor is a powerful tool when it comes to marketing and advertising, but sometimes the joke doesn’t land. Hubspot announces a ton of new products and features at Inbound 2018. New Breed Marketing declares the Marketing Funnel dead, and proposes the Marketing Flywheel.

Go cast your vote! 42:04 – In this episode’s Head to Head, the segment in which we deep dive into a single topic, the panel discusses conversational marketing. Dave gives us an introduction to conversational marketing, a term coined by Drift.io, and explains how, in a world of unlimited supply, there’s no time to waste when it comes to engaging prospective customers. Paul shares his personal experience with using Drift on his agency website. Patrick likes the potential, but sees limitations in the ability of chatbots to truly recreate the human element needed to make a real connection. Tom loves the ideas of being able to instantly interact with people, but finds the implementation often slides into interruptive marketing, which he’s not a fan of. 51:00 – In this edition of Formidable Fermentations, the segment where we answer viewer questions: One viewer asks for input on how to handle the expansion of a brand into new product lines, and how to hold onto their brand value, without changing their domain name.

The Pilot – Episode 001
Welcome to Marketers Drinking Beer! If you want to follow along for future episodes, be sure to Like and Follow us on Facebook. In our pilot episode, we did things a little differently, as we actively figured out our show format. For one, we sample two different beers, something we decided to scrap in favor of sampling a single beer, so it could be fully appreciated. Nonetheless, it was fun pitting two beers local to the DC-area against one another in our taste test. You’ll also quickly notice that the audio quality is far below our desired standard, something we quickly rectified for Episode 002. While the audio isn’t ideal, the conversation is excellent, and we hope you enjoy this early look at the show! 00:55 – Things start off with an introduction to our regular cast of co-hosts: Paul Gannon, CEO of Thoughtcast Media Video Marketing Dave Martin, Director of Marketing at the American College of Radiology Patrick Dorsey, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Impexium Tom Lehman, President of Lehman Reports 01:27 – The co-hosts jump right in and taste the first beer, Trail Angel Weiss by Devils Backbone Brewing Company, out of Vienna, VA. Trail Angel Weiss is a Bavarian-style Hefeweizen that is honey colored and light to medium in body with a fruity, spicy finish. The recipe for Trail Angel Weiss has been brewed since day one at Devils Backbone and is the style of beer that inspired founders Steve & Heidi Crandall to build their own brewery! Honey, Banana, Clove. 04:50 – The gang then starts discussing the first marketing topic of the evening: Will artificial intelligence ever replace marketers in the workplace? Our introduction to the topics come from the CNBC article, Marketing Will Never Be Done By Robots. Dave comes out the gate with strong position on AI, saying it’s only a matter of time before almost everything gets automated. Patrick has a more humanist view on the subject, claiming AI will never really be able to replicate human emotion. And Tom is somewhat suspicious of both views. The conversation sways to the automation of reporting, and how tools like Automated Insights are freeing up time previously spent generating reports, before leading to a deeper conversation of the role of emotion in marketing to B2C and B2B audiences, and the difference between the two. 20:04 – It was then time for the second, and arguably more adventurous beer, Feed the Monkey by Jailbreak Brewing of Laurel, MD. A german style hefeweizen that combines traditional notes of clove and banana with subtle citrus aromas and flavors to provide balance and complexity. With this hefeweizen, there’s no fruit required — we’ve got that covered. 21:02 – From there, we get to know the co-hosts a little better by discussing what they’ve been up to lately in their work. Dave Martin is getting comfortable in his new role as Director of Marketing Patrick Dorsey is prioritizing marketing technologies and tactics Tom Lehman shares insights into his upcoming Industry Report And Paul Gannon is scaling video testimonial production on an international level 30:15 – Tom goes on to share an interesting article from eMarketer, How to Transform into a Modern Marketing Department, which asks the question, “what marketing activities should you bring/retain in-house vs. what do you outsource?” This leads to an in-depth discussion with many differing points, perspectives, and begs additional questions. 45:07 – Finally, the panel takes a question from the audience: “What are one or two of the most important practices for establishing authority and building a brand online?” Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook to catch future live videos, or check out our event calendar to learn how you can attend a live recording!
