DBBB Turns Three

The 3rd edition of the Essential Reference of Domestic Brewers and Their Bottled Brands (DBBB) is now available. The DBBB is the first annually published, hardcover beer reference to index and detail all of the U.S. beer brewers and their bottled brands.

The comprehensive guide has listings broken out alphabetically, by style, by geographic availability, by how each brand is supplied, by individual brewer portfolios, and with color and bitterness charts.

“Our third edition meticulously catalogues more than 400 breweries and 3000 brands of beer from across the country,” said Michael Kuderka, managing partner of MC Basset, LLC and the book’s creator and publisher. “For the first time, it also includes SRM (color) and IBU (bitterness) information to give beer sellers an extra tool for describing and comparing how various beer brands will look and taste before their customers purchase.”

The 3rd edition also includes a “Brewery Portfolio” section that offers brewers the opportunity to provide a more detailed description of their breweries and their marketed brands.

Each book includes a one-year subscription to the book’s Online Companion, which is updated monthly with any brand changes, launches and discontinuations. Users who register online also will receive the monthly Show Your Style and Style Trends e-mail communications and DBBB Alerts that give real-time information about new brewery brands and brewery events.
