Very nice.... If you only drink the stuff. A cursory glance through one magazine, (so I may dead be wrong) shows that it's more concerned with boutiquing beer and celebratizing it's crafters than it is about the actual making of the stuff. At least one article should be about brewing history, and one should include a recipe for the home brewer that replicates one brewer's featured beer.
Used to be published monthly but now I see it's going quarterly and the price has increased as well. I'm paying more for less? Also, no effort made to notify subscribers this is happening - I just stumbled on this when I noticed I haven't gotten an issue in several months. Probably time to cancel.
Pretty much a mirror of the site. Run by "bros" who ban you from their forums for having a difference of opinion on anything. Like others said too, I don't care about the hipster snob culture that give us craft drinkers a bad name, unless you're bashing bud, coors, miller or pbr than its fine. I don't want to hear so much about beers I'll probably never get to try and what's going on in the "scene" just straight honest reviews of beers out there
Must Have for all beer lovers This magazine is full of everything beer. It covers all aspects of beer from brewing to beer culture. If you are a beer lover, and I expect you are, then this is a must have magazine. For $10 a year it is a steal! Give it a shot and learn something new about beer in every issue.
Good content, difficult to read on computer I enjoy the magazine content but find it frustrating to read one the computer. The text is small and when zooming in using the reader, the resolution is too poor to read without significant strain/trying to decipher the text. However, on mobile devices, it is crisp and easy to read, though navigation can get wonky. I would like to see a better reader for use on the computer as the native one in Chrome (the only supported browser) is subpar. Fix the computer reading issue and I would give it 5 stars.
Not Impressed Just like their website..fake. True craft beer fans, they're better one's out there. Sadly not digital.
