How To Pitch Hop Culture

A pitch should consist of one or two paragraphs written in your voice with your point of view. Good pitches are succinct, focused, and tailored to Hop Culture. Your pitch should explain the specific angle you are taking, who you plan to talk to, and why you’re the best person for this story.

While pre-reporting is important, we don’t typically accept completed stories. We’d prefer to work with a writer in shaping the story for Hop Culture. Along with your pitch, please include a potential headline and links to writing and/or photography samples. Your previous work doesn’t exclusively have to cover craft beer but it should illustrate the type of writing or photography you want to do for Hop Culture.

Before pitching, please check to make sure Hop Culture hasn’t already covered the topic.

While we try to respond to all outside pitches, it’s not always possible. And if you don’t receive a response, or if your first pitch isn’t a good fit for Hop Culture, please feel free to pitch us again!

Every once in a while, we post opportunities for driven and attentive individuals who want to join our team and develop creative, fun, and — above all — journalistic ways to cover the craft beer movement and its shapers. Our small but skilled staff is made up of journalists; we’re looking for like-minded people who want to write about beer.

Our coverage focuses on the intersection of craft beer and travel, gear, people and culture. Despite covering the hoppy and alcoholic, we are looking for talented and determined candidates who want to help us grow into one of the largest online publications dedicated to craft beer.
