It’s been well over two years since we’ve made any major changes to the mag. Since then, the entire team has been closely watching shifts in both print and online publishing, listening to feedback, cultivating creative story ideas, and looking for new ways to continue to bring our readers the best independent beer journalism possible. Meanwhile, changes in the beer industry and the beer media landscape show no signs of slowing down.

So what does this all mean for BeerAdvocate magazine? It means that evolution is important and necessary. We can’t get into the specifics just yet, but we can confirm that big changes are coming in 2018. Don’t worry, though. We’re not going anywhere. The mag will remain available in its tangible, monthly format, and we’ll keep packing it with fascinating beer stories from our talented pool of contributors. However, we will also say that we’re rethinking how to establish a more substantial distinction between what we publish in print and the content that appears online. But that’s all you’re getting out of us right now.

In the meantime, we’re still very much interested in your ideas as we begin to map out the next version of the mag. Why do you subscribe? Which sections do you look forward to reading? What topics deserve more coverage? Please take a moment to send us your thoughts via email, Facebook, Twitter, or good old snail mail: beeradvocate.com/contact. We’re listening.

Respect Beer.
