Does BeerAdvocate have the Hots for Omar?

“Yeah, BA mag is about to look a whole lot sexier; inside and out.”

Of course they seem to be referring to their move using a perfect bound binding for the magazine and some new columns, but whatever. One of or Minnesota breweries is represented on the cover along with a metric shit-ton of Furious cans. Color me impressed… or at least thirsty!

Do beer bars still get free copies of the magazine? I haven’t seen it in ages and don’t subscribe.

    I had a subscription the first year and never renewed. I saw some copies on the bar at Wash. square in WBL last week, but im not sure if they still supply bars w/ them or not?

    I also subscribed the first year only. I didn’t see a reason to renew since plenty of local bars carried free copies. 1/2 the magazine is advertisements with another 1/4 of the content being their reviews I could care less about and another 1/4 of the content being cooking recipes.

    For a while they did stop sending free copies to bars and brewpubs. I’d guess they realized that this made their print numbers lower giving them a lower number to show potential advertisers which would lower the price advertisers would be willing to pay. Now they’re returned at some brewpubs and beer bars. I’ve grabbed copies at Town Hall Brewery and The Blue Nile in the past few months.
