Founded in Boston in 1996, BeerAdvocate (BA) is 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 beer.

BeerAdvocate remains solely owned and operated by Jason and Todd Alström, with awesome support from their team of co-workers and volunteer staff.

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.

And since 2006, BeerAdvocate has had the honor to work with countless contributors to publish independent, award-winning, journalism. From valuable news coverage, candid interviews, in-depth features, and much more.

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