    I always feel like the cover of BA magazine is very well done, but I have to give the award for "Favorite BA Magazine cover" to #104 (September 2015). I dare you to take a look at that cover and try not to smile. It speaks to the casual/fun element of beer and, as far as I understand the sort of person Mr. Wong to be, the nature of Highland Brewing and the man himself. What other covers stand out to my fellow beer lovers and BA readers?

    This is the first issue I've had! I've yet to sit down and give it a good read, but I must thank @kevanb for including it in my box (I promise, yours is coming soon!) - I found it to be a very fun and unexpected extra. Much appreciated!

    Glad you like it! We're pretty sure the cover of the October issue will produce a smile or two, too (especially if you're a fan of Kentucky beer).

    For me #10, #14 and #104 (the current one) are the best.

    #101. The cover reads "AMBER HIGHWAYS: Brewers Hit The Road." What I imagine is myself taking a cross country tour to all of my favorite breweries. (Kind of like visiting all of the major league ball parks.) What could be more fun than that?!
    Stickers most definitely included!!!

    I just saw the cover for #105. It's my favorite. Might have something to do with my favorite local brewery being featured.

    Anybody who was on the site when issue #69 hit, and remembers all "activity" surrounding that cover, will agree that any one who answers other Issue 69 is a liar. People on this site were losing their shit about that chick.

    For me, it was Issue 49, the Don Younger memorial cover. #31 is also great. To quote Don: It's not about the beer, it's about the beer.

    For me, it's clearly #29.

    If you know the context of the picture, you'll understand. :wink:

    Otherwise, you'll probably continue to wonder.

    I'm not sure my favorite but I've noticed the people on the cover have been super happy lately

    #69 is a great classic, almost has that 40s art Rosie Riviter and airwing art bent to it
    #99 cause I love explosions
    #61 for its depth and simple darkness, I remember these sort of dead at night winter working days and the photo captures that feeling wonderfully
