Just Beer VS. The Just Beer Project — what’s the diff’???
SPOILER ALERT… THEY’RE NOT THE SAME!
By Justin Beerber on Jun. 07, 2016
Both Just Beer and the Just Beer Project are on a mission to make drinking beer (and specifically craft beer) a more fun and enjoyable experience; they just have different approaches to achieve that goal.
The Just Beer Project
The Just Beer Project is a brewery, based in Burlington, Vermont. The Just Beer Project’s mission is: “to deliver beer drinkers un-complicated, world-class craft brews that are delightful in their simplicity – nothing too complicated or exotic and with all natural ingredients. [Their] beers are intended to be sessionable, stay in the 5% ABV range, and focus on a great balance between malt and hops.”
The goal of the Just Beer Project to create “the perfect beer for the person who’s looking to spend less time reading about beer, and more time drinking it.”
The Just Beer Project produces these craft beers:
- Anytime IPA
“It’s not 2,000 BUs. The hops weren’t harvested from the grounds of a temple in the heart of a jungle that you’ve never even heard of. This beer won’t change your attitude. We’re not trying to scare you or numb your tongue. You just drink it. It tastes great–ANYTIME!”
- Just Summer
“Looking for a great-tasting beer that will take you from poolside to campfire and everything in between? Introducing JUST SUMMER, a lightly hopped, unfiltered wheat beer with only 4.2% ABV! Quite frankly it’s JUST the right beer for the season. And more importantly, CRAFTED NOT TO SUCK!”
The community for beer lovers
At Just Beer we brew absolutely nothing. We do however, take pride in our ability to “craft” new ideas for articles, and other ways to make the app and website more valuable to our fans and followers. But our contribution to the beer community is that we have built a space for the beer-enthusiasts (that’s you!) to peruse new beers, seek out awesome-fun beer events, contribute your opinions and thoughts on local beers, and discover new breweries and other beer-appropriate brands!
The goal of Just Beer is to present you with as many beers, brands, events and articles as possible, so you can continually expand your beer horizons. (In short, Just Beer wants you to embrace and LOVE beer as much as we do–even if that means you’ve got to read about it!)
The Just Beer App produces:
- Articles and news about beer, recipes, local blogger contributions, and generally-informative (and often funny) beer information.
- A never-ending list of beer events in local venues from select cities, encouraging people to go out, be social, discover new beers, and to meet fellow beer fanatics.
- Beer and Brand records, so you can search, save, and track your favorite beers so that you don’t forget another great (or awful) beer again.
So there you have it Just Beer VS. The Just Beer Project
One is building a community of education and comradery in the beer world, the other…is Creating cold, crisp, sessionable craft beers for the beer world!

What Made Me Get Into Reviewing Craft Beer?
“The Craft Beer Movement” is something that has been growing for sometime. People wanted different things, and brewers wanted to think outside of the box. Seeing beers in Europe evolve into masterpieces, North America wanted in! I know that when I was in liquor stores in Alberta a few years back, I saw the shelves
