The best part about being a beer lover (aside from the actual beer) is being a part of the craft beer community. There are so many stellar bloggers, brewers and magazines out there doing out-of-the-box, adventurous things, and Instagram is the perfect place to follow along. These ten beerstagram accounts provide all of the photography, entertainment, dogs, foodie plates and beer you could ever ask for.

Among established and well known breweries, Allagash Brewing is one of the most exciting to follow. Along with promoting their beer, they also promote understanding of the science behind their brewing (especially via their coolship) and give a window in to the Maine lifestyle.

This traveling beer blog is based out of Texas, which makes it invaluable for contrasting against the majority of beer instagram account, which tend to focus on the coasts. Call it a break from brightly-colored Treehouse cans.

Home brewers supporting and promoting diversity and sub-culture in craft beer, Black Brew Culture is new on the craft beer scene, but vital to it. When articles question whether black people even like craft beer, look no further. Online magazine launching soon.
