Instagramming for Beer
We’ve all done it. Taken that tightly-cropped, close-up picture of a beer from our favorite brewery and shared it on social media. You probably put that photo on Facebook or Twitter. You may have even tried Instagram. Like that new Double IPA you just discovered, Instagram brings a smile to the beer lover’s face. Why? It’s an easy, fun, effective way to promote a brewery.
Not an Instagrammer? Here’s the skinny.
Instagram is an online photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service that enables users to take pictures and videos, and share them on social networking services like Facebook and Twitter. The app crops photos to a square shape and allows users to apply digital filters to pictures similar to Kodak Instamatic and Polaroid images.
