Episode 003 of Marketers Drinking Beer was filmed LIVE from The Limerick Pub.

On this episode of Marketers Drinking Beer, filmed live from The Limerick Pub in Wheaton, MD, the panel of co-hosts discuss Adobe’s acquisition of Marketo, influencer marketing with Pintrest, Salesforce’s new voice solution for conversational CRM, and whether content is still king, or if we need to transcend storytelling, and focus more broadly on Customer Experience (CX).

Jennifer Rogers, co-founder of Brawling Bear Brewing, also stopped by with two beers:


Low Blow

Blonde Ale

Just like an all action brawler, this blonde ale never disappoints the crowd. With it’s easy drinking maltiness and crisp finish, this blonde is a fan favorite.

ABV: 6% | IBU: 63

The Fight

Coffee Stout

The Fight Coffee Stout is a collaboration brew that blends coffee from Indonesia with a traditional dry stout. More about The Fight.

ABV: 6.7% | IBU: 20
