Guest Post Guidelines
On JustBeer, we require our guest posts to follow specific guidelines in order to be approved for publication. We ask that you review these guidelines before submitting your content to JustBeer for review.
In order to be considered for publication on JustBeer, all articles and content submissions should:
- Be relevant, beer-related or align with JustBeer brand
- Be original content written by the submitter. Contains no plagiarized content.
- Not be identical to a topic that is already on JustBeer. (i.e. If we already have an article on How to Play Beer Pong on the site, submissions on the same topic will be rejected.)
- Not be posted anywhere else (with the exception of your own blog/personal pages)
- Be well-written, well-researched and contain adequate grammar, punctuation and spelling

- Contain a brief author bio at the end of the post (this can include links to your blog, social media channels, etc.)
- Not be promotional or a sponsored post
Guest Post vs Sponsored Post
A guest post is original content that is written or created by an independent writer, blogger or beer lover to share information on a topic. While these may contain links to products or other sites, these are not the main focus of the article. Sponsored or promotional content is written in order to promote a brand, product or event. On JustBeer, we reserve the right to decline guest submissions that are considered sponsored content or promotional.
If you’re looking to promote a brand, product, event or advertise on JustBeer, please visit our advertise with us page.
JustBeer accepts press release submissions, however, we reserve the right to reject press releases at the discretion of our editorial team.
When submitting a guest post, please note that our editors/editorial team reserve the right to:
- Reject submissions
- Edit, revise, update submissions
- Include call-to-actions and links to JustBeer content and social channels in submitted content
- Remove or unpublish previously posted submissions
