BeverageDaily has changed its publishing schedule slightly this year to increase our focus on in-depth, feature articles.
We publish three newsletters every week to round up what’s happening in the industry: from breaking news to trends and events.
Meanwhile, our Editor’s Spotlight newsletter is published two times a week. This newsletter features an in-depth article on an area we’ve found particularly interesting in the beverage industry: whether this is zoning in on a macro trend or putting the spotlight on lesser-known innovations or ideas.
Topics to date have included the latest in Australian wine research, the role of brand ambassadors in Asia's growing spirits market, the importance of water stewardship, Vietnam's craft beer sector, the growth of alkaline water, and much more.
We also publish a beer supplement on the last Friday of the month (or you can keep up with everything that’s brewing via the dedicated section on our website).
And our special edition newsletters – published five times a year and outlined above – feature a host of articles on a given subject area.
