Alström Bros. In Beer We Trust. Founded in Boston in 1996, BeerAdvocate (BA) is a global, grassroots network, powered by an independent community of enthusiasts and professionals dedicated to supporting and promoting better beer. Since its inception, BeerAdvocate.com has grown into the largest and most diverse beer community online and is now widely considered the go-to website for news, reviews, gossip and guidance about beer.

BA remains solely owned and operated by Jason and Todd Alström, who also publish BeerAdvocate magazine. Launched in December 2006, BeerAdvocate was then and still remains the only monthly beer magazine in circulation. Subscribe today and get 12 issues filled with valuable news coverage, candid interviews, in-depth features and plenty of beer reviews from the Alström brothers.

Since the Art of Beer Festival in 2003, BeerAdvocate has continued to organize popular festivals and events every year. From social gatherings to charity fundraisers, online tastings to larger ticketed festivals, BA events provide the beer community numerous opportunities to sample, socialize and learn more about beer while directly supporting the industry.

As the web's single largest site devoted to the world of beer and brewing and as the only monthly beer magazine in print, BeerAdvocate has established itself as an invaluable resource for fans and professionals alike. Join the movement by creating an account.
