Crafting Beer and Communities

Our purpose is to create an ecosystem of inspiring ideas among agricultural and craft beer communities to better the communities around us. Beer drinkers, breweries and all of our partners are of the shared belief that people matter. As a result we can change lives and improve health.  We (Northern Ale Guide) have set out to partner with Midwest craft breweries, beer enthusiasts and non profit partners to make a difference in communities and around the world.  Learn about how you can help craft your community.
