Founded 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.

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

And since 2006, we've 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.

Today, we're widely considered the go-to website for beer and the benchmark for beer reviews and ratings due to our focus on quality, integrity, and respect.
