If you've ever wondered what it's like to be an intern at The Rapidian, this video of a current intern Marie Orttenburger shows what it's like to tell the stories of Beer City USA.

Follow the stories of local beer

Every week through the end of the year, intern Marie Orttenburger will bring you two essential news articles to become a part of your local brewery culture:

What's On Tap will let you know, every Thursday, all the local beers on tap and local events and specials going on for the upcoming week. Check out the most recent What's On Tap article.

Brewer profile articles introduce you to the stories behind the businesses- and their brewers. Harmony Brewing Company was the most recent brewer profile.

See the full list of Orttenburger's brewery articles here.

The Rapidian's Story Matters project was at Brewery Vivant's Wood-Aged Beer Festival this weekend, and our intern Marie Orttenburger stopped by to talk about what she's been learning about the local brew culture and how she's getting to know local brewers through an internship at The Rapidian.
